With a background in mechanical engineering, Thomas Servais is managing IBA Industrial for nearly 4 years. In addition, he is a professor of applied mechanics at the university of Louvain-La-Neuve (UCL).
Having started his career more than 20 years ago, he spent about 9 years in the design and production of aircraft and space shuttle engines. “Able to talk with engineers while being anchored in the field”. During this first experience, he also managed a major Service Hub in the aircraft engine industry.
In 2008, he joined IBA, initially to start, install and stabilize a Manufacturing Team dedicated to Proton Therapy Cyclotrons. He then moved to global R&D to lead the Accelerator Group, serving all businesses from diagnostics to treatment and industrial applications.
He was then appointed to set up IBA’s Research and Advanced Technologies Group, providing projects to fuel the outlook for the coming decades.
He then moved on to his current position, convinced that industrial applications, and more particularly food applications, will benefit more than ever from IBA technology.
He is therefore a committed sponsor of IFIS and looks forward to hearing from you.
