About Sheet Metal Connect
Most sheet metal fabrication companies have disconnected workflows. I specialize in connecting your factory processes, to achieve a highly automated digital factory, so you can increase your productivity.
My sole focus is on companies that have sheet metal as their core business, either as part of their products or as a supplier. This allows me to understand all the ins and outs of your business from day one.
Unlike other providers, I approach challenges from an architect’s perspective by building a solid digital and process foundation, followed by effective implementation and staff training.
My ideal clients want to excel at the cutting edge of what can be accomplished with the latest technologies, such as machine learning, AI and cloud technologies. To enable them to compete with the shortest lead times, highest quality products and highest customer satisfaction.
Sheet Metal Connect’s promises:
- 100% independent (no commissions, sponsorships, or partnerships)
- 100% clear pricing (no hourly billing)
- 100% satisfaction (always a plan in advance, with follow-up)
About Luke van Enkhuizen
For the past decade, my daily work has revolved around finding more effective ways to automate repetitive tasks and thereby improve competitiveness.
I started my career on the shop floor as a sheet metal worker, draftsman/work planner, and later engineer and project leader for ERP-implementations.
My experience and expertise come from practical examples and challenges, as well as my engineering mentality that I gained during my studies in Engineering, Design and Innovation. I also specialized in Business Process Integration through my minor.
After four years of working for my employer, I have been operating independently on the Dutch-speaking markets since 2017, and since 2021 also in the German-speaking markets.
Since then, I have developed my skills by attending numerous courses and studies in software development, project management and strategy development.
I founded a podcast, speak at keynote events, and am currently enrolled in a master’s program in artificial intelligence, where I explore the latest technologies in machine learning, analytics, and disruptive production methods.
I am proud to be described by my clients as a thoughtful, experienced specialist with deep industry knowledge. These reviews and success stories are the reason I go to work every day with passion.
Furthermore, I currently live in Vienna, Austria, where my hobbies include cycling, jiu-jitsu, and programming until the wee hours of the morning. I usually come to the Netherlands and Belgium at least a couple of times a quarter to help my clients with their local needs and various events.
I have worked with 15+ metalworking companies from The Netherlands, Belgium and Austria including:
- Salzburger Aluminium Group (SAG), location Alutech BV.
- ThyssenKrupp Materials NV
- Team Industries NV
- Metagro BV
- P&G-Metaalwerken BVBA
- Blokland Metaalbewerking BV
- Deliconstruct BVBA
- Singeling Constructie-Lastechniek BV
I also occasionally work with software makers to improve their product/market fit, implementations and customer experience. For example, for QuotationFactory, ECI Ridder iQ, and TRUMPF.
I am happy to schedule a reference visit after initial conversations about your company and its objectives.
