Bulk Handling Systems purchased an Amsterdam company earlier this year.

Eugene-based Bulk Handling Systems has established a European office in the Netherlands.

BHS, a waste material recovery specialist, will open the Amsterdam office a few months after it bought Nihot Recycling Technology, which is based in the Dutch metropolis. Nihot’s development director Cees Duijn will become BHS Europe’s managing director.

Duijn will manage the region’s sales, product delivery and customer service for BHS.

“As we continue to build our European footprint and customer base, it’s important to us that we have the pieces in place to support this growth,” said Steve Miller, BHS’ CEO. “After working together for many years, I have a great deal of respect for Cees and his team, and am truly excited about the future of BHS Europe under his direction.”
