Advanced oils, lubricants and treatments since 1887
As part of our Meet The… series, we have been getting in touch with our distributors to find out more about them and their work. Casper Hanken is our distributor from Millers Oils Benelux and has been telling us about his family, hobbies and passions. Here’s how it went…
My name is Casper Hanken. I’m 51 years old and was born in Groningen (Netherlands). I’m a father of 2 children; Silver (16) and Sterre (21).
I was a classic car owner and by coincidence found a pallet with Millers Oils Classic car oil, Classic Pistoneeze 20w50 and, at that time, Transvers M (Mini oil). I was instantly in love with the brand and saw opportunities in the niches of the classic and motorsport sectors.
My favourite product is the VSPe power plus multishot because it is a one of a kind product, and users really feel the difference when they use it.
I think I am the longest sitting distributor, and from the first export manager, called John Barnes quite some others came around. But in all the years with Millers Oils (almost 30 years, I go for the golden watch 😊), it has never been boring.
4 people in total work with me.
The Dutch mentality and open mind culture as well as doing business with Dutch people is what I like about the Netherlands. Also, as a water sports lover, we have the best kitesurf spots in Holland.
Being my own boss and my freedom.
I would travel the world for 6 months (or longer), with my kite gear and visit the best spots in the world.
My own new office and warehouse in Oosterhout, which is happening in a few weeks from now 😉.
