Dutch Manufacturing Industry
Subject of debate: the current position of the Dutch Manufacturing Industry, the investment expectations and the trends, such as smart industry and robotics. Along with Germany and Switzerland, the Netherlands is in the top 3. Based on a survey, Rabobank recently tested sentiments about the investment expectations within the sector. This revealed that replacement and expansion are the main motives behind investment. The transition to the cloud is finding its way within the sector, though with caution. For Rabobank too it is a given that ICT is the strategic tool of the future to enable market movements to be anticipated. There is also more and more specialisation and a focus on low volume, high mix and high complexity. In particular, manufacturing companies are looking for smart methods to safeguard and retain their strategic knowledge.
