Sittard, November 30, 2017 – Lamoral Coatings and Chemelot Innovation and Learning Labs (CHILL) recently decided to collaborate on the development of sustainable coatings. Students of secondary, higher and academic levels will have the opportunity to work with current and relevant issues that are essential for Lamoral in the development and commercialization process. The connection between education and the business sector that continues to take shape in the Limburg province is further encouraged through this cooperation. This social contribution fits the philosophy of Lamoral Coatings.
“Lamoral Coatings has a disruptive and innovative coating that is currently being commercialized in various applications in the areas of roofing, textiles and steel,” said Mr. Verweerden, director of Lamoral Coatings.” The collaboration with CHILL gives us the opportunity to use up-and-coming talent that is coached by experienced professionals.” In addition, it gives us access to state-of-the-art research facilities that enable the application development process and thus speeds up commercialization to customers”, continues Mr Neefs, financial director Lamoral Coatings.
“The collaboration is also particularly valuable for CHILL, says Ron Lambi, business developer at CHILL. “We are here to bring education and business in the Chemistry domain closer together. To this end, we bring our students early on in contact with companies on the Brightlands Chemelot Campus and far beyond. They work at CHILL under the guidance of professionals on innovation issues from the region. In this way they apply their knowledge in contemporary issues. This facilitates and increases the career perspective. Moreover, the company and student come into contact with each other early on, with all the benefits it entails. This way we retain talent for our region. This is only possible if companies such as Lamoral recognize the added value of this set-up.”
