Her Majesty Queen Máxima stated, “I’m very happy to see you (Prodrive) are creating relationships with education to help create those new jobs and talent of the future. I am extremely proud of what the Dutch are doing in this company. And I want to thank all of the Americans that made it possible for them to feel at home and give them this incredible opportunity.”

Pieter Janssen, CEO, co-owner and founder of Prodrive Technologies, said, I’m extremely proud of our USA team that has achieved such level of professionalism in such a short period of time. Although we cannot visit right now, we can feel the energy and vibe and we see the quality and dedication of your work. And of course, I’m also grateful to those Prodrivers in The Netherlands, who are supporting our US colleagues, acting as one company.”
