Michael Meijler started working as a Business Manager of Plant Phenotyping on July 1, 2022. The market share of WPS in robotics, logistic automation and camera solutions for plant research companies has grown enormously. Meanwhile, WPS is delivering to all leading agriscience companies. A separate business unit was established to realize further growth.

Michael has gained the right experience after having worked in different technical and managerial positions in the past few years. Michael’s team is strengthened with project managers, contract managers and sales engineers.
