It’s nice to know who you’re doing business with, so let me introduce myself. I am Joop Hartogs, living in Schagen and office in Tuitjenhorn. Industrial Automation Support was founded as a sole proprietorship in 2018 when I was still working in permanent employment. IAS was there with the aim of doing some small jobs for myself in addition to the regular activities. After completing my HBO study Industriële Automatisering it turned out that the combination of a permanent employer and your own company was no longer realistic.

In 2021 I continued with IAS as a fully independent person with IAS B.V..
Difficult to quit your permanent job? Yes, of course! Regret? Certainly not!
