The national final of the R-M Best Painter Contest 2016 Netherlands took place on 9 June 2016 in the Refinish Competence Center of Maarssen. The 4 candidates (that have been selected during a preselection that took place on 1 April 2016) completed several tasks: spot repair, color matching and several painting tasks.
A professional jury (1 of the jury members was Niels Rikken, the winner of our national final in 2013) checked everything carefully during the entire day. In the evening we announced the name of the winner: Berry Kooijman (23 years old), working at Autoschade Herstel Verweij. During the day we had a lot of visitors in the Refinish Competence Center, such as sponsors, family & friends from the candidates and of course also the employers of the candidates.
Thanks to EMM, 3M, SATA, RUPES for the professional support and presentations.
Berry Kooijman is very proud that he can participate in the international final in Clermont in September :
