On the 7th of February, technology developer and producer Demcon officially opened the new location in Best. In November 2018 Demcon moved from its old location in Son to the former Dräger-building in Best.
Mayor Hans Ubachs opened the new location officially and heralded the program. Part of the program was the interesting lecture by Marleen Stikker, who, as an internet pioneer, gives a different view on technology. After the official program Demcon presented several projects. One of this projects is the HandScan of Hemics. This is a smart optical imaging device that uses light measurement to visualise inflammation in the hand and wrist joints. Demcon has been active in this project for some time, but has taken over the underlying company Hemics in November.
Since 2011 Demcon is established in the Eindhoven region. The establishment in this region was a strategic choice. Technical talent is nearby on the Eindhoven University of Technology and (potential) clients.
Eindhovens Dagblad recently published an interview with Toon Hermans, managing director in Best. The article discusses the move to Best and corresponding growth ambitions. Read the whole article here.
