Lessons learned in the Aircraft Industry to add value to the wind turbine aftermarket.
Jochem Sauer studied Industrial Engineering at the Polytechnics in Tilburg and achieved his masters at Nijenrode business university. After several positions in Engineering, Sales and Management Jochem started working for Fokker Services as commercial director responsible for Component and Material Services. Fokker Services is an Aerospace company active worldwide and specialized in the aftermarket support for regional aircraft. In this role he learned to understand the need for excellence service and availability of parts to guarantee the uptime of the customers, the airlines. In 2009 Jochem was promoted to business line director Logistic Asset Management and responsible for all availability programs within Fokker Services. Working at the top of the edge in Logistics Jochem realized that the products developed in Aerospace could be of great value for industries with similar characteristics. Wind turbines have the same characteristics as aircraft. After discussing his ideas with several specialists out of the wind turbine industry Jochem decided to translate these added value services to the wind turbine aftermarket by setting up Spares in Motion.
