KvT and Toeps explain why TTIP matters to businesses like theirs02/02/2016 | © UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office
Marijn van Twist, from the family-run diesel manufacturer Kemper & Van Twist (KvT), and Vincent Toepoel, founder of Toeps Innovation Implementation, both support the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. The two companies are working together to produce generators for use in remote areas, that can recycle waste products into energy. Both refer to the barriers they face when exporting to the USA, such as the need for separate certification on their products. TTIP could help them by removing these extra requirements.
