Our history

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 an established name in mechatronics. In these years we have performed many projects for companies in several countries in Europe and overseas.

Our partners

Our largest customers see us more 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 help our customers to become more competitive. The projects we do is a source for inspiration and innovation for both parties.

Specialist partners

Additionally, MI-Partners has a large network of partner 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.

Academic relations

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.
