MI-Partners is a leading centre of expertise in the field of mechatronics, and is active in developing high-tech mechatronics products and systems.
MI-Partners wants to be rated as a top-5 partner in research and development by our customers.
We want to achieve this ambition through efficient organization, excellent people, developing our technical competences and expanding our knowhow by working together with partners. We work closely with our customers and try to understand their needs.
We help our customers by offering our expertise in mechatronics innovations. We do this in the form of project-based R&D for a wide range of clients in a variety of fields. Our experience can provide a fresh look and out-of-the-box ideas. Dedicated teams are formed and projects vary in duration from a few days to over a year.
Our focus lies with early involvement in research and pre-development, but we can also provide the complete trajectory up to design, realization and testing. In our laboratories we have the required test & measurement tools.
Our lean and effective organization allows us to act fast, flexibly and competitively to our customer’s needs. We do fair business; our offers and invoices are transparent, we stick to our agreements, deliver on time and communicate clearly.
Currently, we have a team of over 30 highly educated engineers. Our people are passionate about technological innovation and mechatronics development in particular. Their enthusiasm and customer focus comes from joy in their work.
Our people have extensive experience in project-based working and obtained recognized results in the sector. We have close ties to the academic world providing us with the latest technological developments.
MI-Partners was founded in 2007 by former manager of Philips CFT Leo Sanders, entrepreneur Bart van den Broek, TU/e-professor Maarten Steinbuch and TUD-professor Jan van Eijk.
Under the care of director Leo Sanders, our company has grown to over 30 employees today. In these years we have performed many projects for companies in several countries in Europe and overseas.
Some of our largest customers see us as a partner rather than a supplier. Likewise, we see them as partners instead of customers too. This close cooperation gives us the opportunity to innovate and expand our competences. The innovative projects we do with them is a source for inspiration and innovation for both parties.
Additionally, MI-Partners has a large network of companies with their own specializations and expertise. We cooperate with them to expand our own competences. Some of these partners are Simex for thermal and flow analysis, Mice for mechatronics consultancy, Magnetic Innovations for design of magnetic systems and actuators and GMT for passive damping.
Thanks to the support of our co-founders Prof. Dr. Ir. Maarten Steinbuch from Eindhoven University of Technology and Prof. Dr. Ir. Jan van Eijk from Delft University of Technology, MI-Partners has access to the latest technologies in the academic world. By constantly coaching several students (internship and graduate) we are able to stay close to academic research developments.
