Engineering and innovation are the defining professional characteristics of the inventor of Lopolight. A rare combination of the capabilities of electronic and mechanical engineering forms the background from which the unique Lopolight design stems from.
Peter is a lifelong entrepreneur with roots in the long-disappeared photo-finishing industry, taking over the family company after his father at a very young age and continuing in that line of work until the very end of the classic photo era.
In 2002 he volunteered to help a rather hapless sailor with a dream to sail around the world, aside from his monumental effort in getting the boat seaworthy, which meant 33 nights in a row away from the family, he graciously offered to sponsor the LED navigation lights.
The co-operation and friendship between Peter and Jan formed in those days, continued during the successful voyage, where Peter was a core part of the shore crew, into today’s partnership at Lopolight.
