DRACHTEN – High tech company Resato International from Roden joined Innovatiecluster Drachten on Wednesday 2 December. The business cluster thus has 13 members. Chairman Kor Visscher is pleased with the arrival of Resato. “It is great to welcome the winner of the Erasmus Innovation Award 2015 to our high-tech cluster. It shows what great achievements our companies are capable of.”

,,We are here for the long term, not the 'quick-win' and we want nothing more than to share our knowledge. That is why we are happy to join Innovatiecluster Drachten'', said an enthusiastic Rob Castien, CEO of Resato International. ,,We love what we do and are passionate about our craft, but perhaps the most important rule in our company is that everyone is allowed to make mistakes. We expect our employees to admit mistakes and learn from them. This means that we innovate and are therefore leading in our niche market.”
