EUROPE-SMT Celebrates Two-Year Anniversary, Looks Forward to Future Expansion

Aug 24, 2011

KVM4S/EUROPE-SMT, a leading global supplier of SMT production solutions, announces EUROPE-SMT’s second anniversary. The company began as a two-man business dealing with pre-owned Assembléon equipment. The company was founded May 1, 2009 by Assembléon veteran Wilfred der Kinderen and experienced SMT expert Jasper van Meerten.

EUROPE-SMT’s success is attributed to its business concept, based on supplying quality pre-owned equipment. EUROPE-SMT expanded rapidly, and now has six employees.  Apart from Wilfred and Jasper, there are two experienced service engineers and a two-person office and logistics team.  “We knew the market needed our services,” commented Wilfred der Kinderen. “The rapid growth of our company has proven that the market demands a professional pre-owned Yamaha/Assembléon equipment supplier.”

On the international market, EUROPE-SMT has become a well-known pre-owned equipment dealer, using a successful “buy and sell” formula that is mostly prevalent in Europe and Asia (specifically India and China).  In the future, EUROPE-SMT will expand its business to other countries and continents globally.

“Since the start of our company in mid-2009, we have delivered a mind-blowing quantity of machines to the SMT market. We have presently sold more than 100 Yamaha/Assembléon SMT systems and an additional 2500+ SMT feeders have left our feeder shop,” added Jasper van Meerten. “We can only see more growth in our future.”

EUROPE-SMT strives to be easily accessible to its partners and clients; therefore, the company has exhibited at seven major trade shows throughout the world over the past two years.  EUROPE-SMT next will exhibit at Productronica in Munich, Germany in November 2011.


KVM4S/EUROPE-SMT was founded early 1999, in Turnhout, Belgium, and has since evolved into one of the leading global suppliers of SMT production solutions to numerous key global manufacturers. The company consists of four divisions: SMT Equipment, Software, Services and Supplies.
