|Andries van Swaaij is working as a technician within the Elastomer Technology & Engineering group. He studied Organic Chemistry at the Hogeschool Arnhem Nijmegen. After his study he continued within the field of rubber technology and chemistry at Flexsys and Vredestein and the university of Twente as a laboratory co-worker and technician. After supporting 2 PhD projects he was co-founder and owner of the company Artecs. Artecs exploited the equipment and technology of 3 groups of the university towards small businesses outside the university. After 2 years he left Artecs and started to work at the tyre producer Vredestein as a researcher on the laboratory. After one and a half years he became a process engineer within the area of mixing, extrusion and calendaring. He worked 10 years at Vredestein after which he rejoined the ETE group in February 2016 as a technician.|
