Kim Kiekens started her own company SMUKK (Danish for Nice) a few months ago and continues her fresh, startup mentality. ''We are enterprising, curious, flexible and eager but at the same time experienced and professional'', says Kiekens. The company currently has two employees. The founder, Kim, handles the technical side, and another colleague, Hannelore Verstappen, is responsible for the creative side. That combination is of significant value.
"We know the possibilities and the pitfalls of technology.'' A pitfall arose when they were informed that one of their ideas, though quite creative, was not technically feasible. ''We did not want to make any concessions and therefore decided to look for a way to implement our creativity. Their choice was made quickly,'' Kim Kiekens says. ''Trotec Laser offered us that opportunity!''
