Pascal van Putten - Co-founder of VPInstruments


Pascal van Putten together with his brother, Michel, founded VPInstruments in 1999. However, the history of the companyís technology goes back to 1974.  That year, Pascal and Michelís father, Anton van Putten, pioneered the development of MEMS flow sensor technology by implementing world's first thermal mass flow sensor on a silicon substrate. This flow sensor is the mother of all CMOS flow sensors, and its revolutionary design can still be found in many other flow sensors around the world.

VPInstruments provides high quality, easy-to-use flowmeter solutions that help customers reduce compressed air consumption and energy costs. They are also used for nitrogen, carbon dioxide, argon, helium, and other technical gases. In fact, about 90 percent of VPInstrumentsí customers are from outside the Netherlands .

Pascal received a masterís degree in mechanical engineering (precision engineering) from Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands , in 1997. He worked on his masterís research project at the Precision Engineering Center, North Carolina State University. 

In his free time, Pascal is interested in music, art, and playing the piano.
