Meet Our Team

BOLD Robotic Solutions Inc. was founded in November 2017 by two long-time colleagues:

Bill VandenOever and Willem Bijlsma

Bill and Willem were instrumental in the start-up of a world-class robotics company in the Hamilton area.

This company's main focus is on the primary metal manufacturing and forestry products industries.

Bill and Willem wore many hats during the initial phases of the company. They acted as designers, programmers, commissioning engineers, purchasers, assemblers, etc. Eventually their position evolved into co-engineering managers. During this time they gained invaluable experience in a wide range of complex robotic applications in some of the toughest, harshest and dirtiest environments imaginable.

Bringing a combined 20 years of hands-on design and programming experience, Bill and Willem have the proven expertise and professional skills required to make any automation project a success.

Bill VandenOever

Bill is our in-house Mechanical Designer.

Bill brings a wealth of experience in 3D Design and manufacturability. He has a natural knack for determining the most maintenance-friendly, cost-effective and reliable design solutions for any application. Bill has many years of hands-on design experience in Solidworks and Inventor, as well as a long track-record of effective project management experience spread over hundreds of automated and/or robotic work cells.

Willem Bijlsma

Willem is responsible for Electrical Design and Automation.

Willem spent many years providing electrical design in Eplan Electric P8 and has proven programming experience in a wide range of PLC, HMI and robot platforms. Willem has provided complete controls solutions for over 100 automated and/or robotic work cells in a range of industries.

His specialty is detailed robot simulation, user-friendly HMI design and robust PLC code.
