Recently we got in touch with one of Forze’s former chief engineers, Edwin de Kreij. He worked on the Forze III in 2010 and currently is an employee of Jaguar Land Rover. We asked him a few questions about his stay at Forze and here is what Edwin has to say.
What is your name and where do you work at the moment?
Edwin de Kreij, Jaguar Land Rover
What was your position at Forze and what was the problem/task you had to solve?
Chief Engineer Forze III, responsible for the technical design and production of the Forze III.
What effect did Forze have on your personal development in terms of skills and knowledge?
I regard my year as Chief Engineer at Forze as the most important year of my studies. Without it, I wouldn’t be here where I am today. I still benefit from the skills and knowledge that I learned during that year today. Especially the interpersonal and management skills I regard as very important.
What did you like most about working at Forze?
What I liked the most about Forze, is the family atmosphere of the team. When you enter the office and workshop, you really sense that this team is working on something special. You also feel that everyone is willing to help each other out in order to reach the end-goal of building a top end hydrogen electric race car.
