Slobbe to leave Tembo

Jeroen Slobbe will leave Tembo as director and board member at the end of this month. Slobbe was with the company for 24 years.

“The last two decades we have been able to transform ourselves from a trade and revision company into an innovative high-tech partner for the tobacco industry and other industries. Jeroen has played a major role in this transformation,” says Arend van der Sluis, chairman of Tembo.

“Jeroen is a well-known personality in the tobacco industry; especially in the OTP segment, where our company TDC became a respected OEM of pouch packing machines. Under his leadership and with the introduction of next-generation products like vaping, TDC has played a pioneering role in the development of automated production platforms.

“We will miss him as a colleague, but our friendship will remain.”

Headquartered in Kampen, Netherlands, the Tembo group includes ITM, SCM/TDC, GTS/SCM, PMP Dominicana, Tembo Paper, PMP Poland, Imatec, SPI Developments, TAM, Gemba Solutions, Tricas, EME Engel, RNT Machinery, GreenProducts, De Olifant and De Eenhoorn.
