Jos Jager studied Shipbuilding and Mechanical Engineering before joining Chevron Tankers Nederland BV, where he specialised in dry-docking (major maintenance) and sailing with very large crude carriers. He then moved to Volker Stevin Dredging Company, first as a Mechanical Engineer and later as a Supervising ME on what were at the time the most modern ships afloat. Jos later worked as a head of maintenance and repair and as a production manager in process-oriented industries. He has managed a number of major projects, including the start-up of a manufacturing operation in Germany and the installation of a new production line at a Dutch company. At Nimbus, Jos is active as Operations Manager and has carried out successful operational improvement projects at Vialle, as Fluitronics France and Geveke Denmark. He recently set up a Nimbus purchasing office in China. His practical, hands-on expertise has proven very valuable to Nimbus companies.
