“Pensioenfonds Metaal en Techniek adopts a steady course”

Anyone who spends years earning a pension wants to be sure that they will ultimately get the benefits they were promised. In recent years, that was not always a given. The Pensioenfonds Metaal en Techniek (PMT), the largest Dutch pension fund for this sector, has proven itself to be a very healthy fund.

PMT handles the pensions of more than 1.2 million participants, making it the third-largest pension fund in the Netherlands. With more than €60 billion being managed for future pension pay-outs, PMT has demonstrated that its income from premiums and its duties are properly balanced. “That is good news for our people and everyone else who is earning a pension with this fund,” says Egbèr Smits, general director of the SLB GROUP.

Everything in order
The majority of the people who work at the SLB GROUP, which RVS NON FERRO and RIJKERS are part of, are members of PMT. Smits: “Whereas many other pension funds have been under pressure these past years, the Pensioenfonds Metaal en Techniek proves that it is sailing a smooth course. I am very happy about that. We do our best to always offer our people a healthy working environment and excellent employment conditions, right up until their retirement. It is just as important, however, to make sure that everything that comes after is in order as well. A reliable pension is an important aspect of that. It is good to know that our people’s pensions are in safe hands with PMT.”

Making global players even better

Our organisations operate at the heart of the Dutch agri-industrial and food industries. These are fields in which our country holds an international top position. Did you know, for example, that the Netherlands is the world’s second-largest exporter of agri-industrial and food products, or that we are the third-largest exporter of machinery for the food industry? Twenty percent of our country’s GDP is earned in the agri-industrial and food industries. At the SLB GROUP, we have a clear mission: to make innovative global players in these sectors even better.
