Hyva 40th anniversary celebrations for EMEA region
Hyva recently celebrated its 40th anniversary by inviting its customers and their families from across Europe, Middle East and Africa to two major events in the Netherlands.
On Friday 27th September, staff from more than 200 loyal companies were thrilled with live music during an exclusive Customer Party, enjoying a boat cruise aboard the OCEANDIVA in Amsterdam. Approximately 700 guests from 20 different countries joined the cruise.
An opening keynote address was given by Hyva’s CEO Marco Mazzu, and dinner was served while the boat sailed through Amsterdam. Martin Kolkman (VP Hyva International and WEMEA) and Zbigniew Jalocha (VP CEE) also gave a vote of thanks to customers for their loyalty through the years. Peter Geers who has worked with Hyva since 1979 and Rudy Maximus since 1980 were called to the stage to share their incredible journey with Hyva from the start. After dinner, the party continued on the boat with a band and special guest Glennis Grace.
The following day, Saturday 28th September, Hyva dealers, customers and employees, along with their children, were entertained by an Open Day at Hyva’s premises in Bergschenhoek.
The Open Day was held in the Hyva Nederland workshop in Bergschenhoek. Almost 600 guests, including customers, dealers, drivers, and employees were welcomed to the event that showcased the latest developments in our product range. The display included installations of 40 innovative, fully built-up trucks representing all EMEA products and solutions including Tipper trucks, Titan Hookloaders, Titan Skiploaders and Cranes.
In addition, some products featured in live product demonstrations of Hyva’s latest innovations, including Hyva Smart, the new electric Hyva KENNIS e-Power crane, the new generation 13RL low-weight rolloader crane, Titan Skiploader, Aerial Platform and Cranes. Complementing the displays, there was a hospitality area with food trucks which served a variety of different foods, together with an entertainment area for the younger guests.
“It was a pleasure to meet so many of our customers from across Europe, Middle East and even from Africa to celebrate this incredible milestone for Hyva, despite the “typical” Dutch weather,” said Martin Kolkman. “The Dutch team did a great job hosting the event at their workshop for our different customers in the region. The company has achieved this success through the hard work, passion and dedication of all our team members who are still driven by the entrepreneurial spirit of our founders. A big thank you to the hundreds of valued customers and strategic partners, but especially to those who had faith in Hyva from the very beginning.”
