The Team

Who works at FD 4x4 Centre and what is their motivation and experience? Read it below. (coming soon)

Wim van Beers

Parts manager

‘Most of our clients know me, as I am the first person they see at FD 4x4 Centre and their main point of contact. I keep an eye on our warehouse and assist with the planning of the workshop.’ Wim van Beers stays calm even in the most stressful situations. ‘I have found my perfect job here, there is no such thing as a boring day. Currently the company is growing and I am proud of our success!’

Scott Blair

Sales manager

‘There is nothing I don’t do,’ says Scott, ‘except mechanical work. And if needed, I would start in the workshop right away.’ Scott Blair assists everyone in the office, helping out Paul with marketing & sales and Wim with the warehouse. ‘For me the variation makes the job perfect. I used to work on the U.S. military base in Schinnen where I ran the garage and the shop, doing everything. Doing the same job day after day is not for me!’

John Hendricks

Engineer

‘In my first job we had to create our own tools,’ says John. ‘I loved it. Now I am building a fully electric vehicle!’ John has been hired to assist in building the Tembo 4x4 e-LV. ‘This car is special, it is fantastic work to do. We started with a Land Cruiser without drivetrain, and have had to consider all details of the vehicle. The engine, the reduction box, battery and all electric parts. For a job like this I come running to my workplace every morning.’

Noud van Gompel

Chauffeur

‘I make sure the mechanics have everything to do their job,’ says Noud, who simply takes up any task at hand. ‘Our warehouse, logistics, transport - I do it.’ Noud enjoys the team and the atmosphere at FD 4x4 Centre. ‘For instance our visit to the Bad Kissingen off-road show, that was something special. You can easily compare our products in an international setting, and they are a good match for the competition!’
