Widely known as entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, PUM senior experts came all the way from Netherlands to Davao City, Philippines to keep Midtown posted with the global trends to strategically compete in the print industry. Two experts, Wim Dekkers and Jan Daems, spent more than two weeks to further improve the company’s system in its technical and management disciplines.
PUM Netherlands senior experts are highly skilled veteran entrepreneurs who commit their time to extend their assistance to developing countries all over the world in different industrial fields. The organization’s target is to globalize progressive companies to grow their businesses to the next level. Experts, with at least 30 years of experience, impart their working knowledge to developing companies to become growth engines for their local economies. “PUM” stands for Programma Uitzending Managers which means, Manager Deployment Programme.
The Yearbook Printing Specialist saw the need to embrace globalization with international trends in the print industry. Midtown, then, applied for PUM before 2005.
Wim Dekkers is the founder of Dekkers van Gerwen while Jan Daems is the former director of Roto Smeets. Both senior experts have been providing their comprehensive consultancy to Midtown since October 2005. On January 5-20, 2013, Dekkers handled Midtown’s management and production operations. He applied his company’s philosophy on smart thinking and creative printing. Daems, on the other hand, evaluated Midtown’s quality printing. Roto Smeets prints Time magazine. With this in mind, it is a clear-cut guarantee that Daems knows what he is doing. He made sure that Midtown qualifies for ISO – 12647-2.
What is ISO – 12647-2?
ISO 12647-2 is the international standard in print and graphic technology. This encompasses the standard quality in process control for the production of half-tone color separations, proof and production prints.
With the efforts of Daems and Dekkers, Midtown continues to be at the cutting-edge of its expertise.
The Philippine economy grew 6.6% in 2012. This proves to show that our country is progressing fast. The evolving taste of the Filipinos transcends along with their affluent approach on architectural, technological and graphic design.
Midtown believes that, sooner or later, schools and universities will realize the value of quality printing. And that can only be experienced with Midtown.
