de Haas - Engineering, Joeri de Haas, tel. +31-6-11843770, email:

After I finished my technical education, I actually spent my entire professional life in the automotive industry. Before I decided to start my own business, I worked successively at:

  • TNO Road Vehicles Research Institute

    • Heavy Duty and Light Duty Engine Development

    • Turbocharger matching

    • Calibration and emission optimization

    • Simulation studies

    • Fundamental research

    • Development of alternative fuel equipment

  • NTZ Netherlands

    • development of filtration products and other (plastic) parts for Automotive and Industrial applications

  • IBS-Filtran

    • development of filtration products and oil pans for automotive transmissions


In addition, I have always been privately active in developing parts for, among other things, drag race motorcycles. Due to all the above activities, I have thoroughly immersed myself in the creation of products from plastic and metal, but also in the development of assembly lines that can turn parts into assemblies.
