Moba Group, a manufacturer of egg grading, packaging and processing equipment, has appointed Michiel Peters as its new managing director, effective January 6, 2014. The company's head office is located in Barneveld, the Netherlands. 

In his new position at Moba, Peters' main task will be to further broaden the company's product and service portfolio, strengthen its innovative capacity and expand its international operations. During recent years, Moba has successfully introduced numerous innovations for the industrialized western markets and also expanded its operations on emerging markets such as Eastern Europe, Asia and Latin America. The broadening of the company's product range with logistical systems and robot technology also means that it can now offer international customers a more comprehensive service package.


During his prior working period from 2004 with Vanderlande Industries, first as director of operations and subsequently as managing director, Peters played a major role in establishing the market-oriented and innovative business operations that currently form the basis for the strong international expansion of that company. Prior to his employment with Vanderlande Industries, Peters worked for Fokker and McKinsey and Co. He graduated as an applied physics engineer at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.

"Moba is a leading company in a globally expanding industry that still offers plenty of opportunities," said Peters. "The company's experience, reputation and technical expertise form a solid basis for it to seize those opportunities. I very much look forward to taking up my position as the managing director of Moba."
