OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM
ROBERT J. VAN DEN BERG
Robert graduated with honors from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. He then went to work for the Aeronautical Division of Honeywell and helped design the electronic controls for the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo space programs. He was promoted to the position of Senior Principal Development Engineer. He was also accepted and did graduate work at the University of Minnesota towards a MSEE. He left Honeywell and founded an electronic and electromechanical component manufacturing representative company called Comstrand Inc. and built it up to $50 million in sales prior to selling it in 2006. They represented some of the largest semiconductor manufacturers in the world such as, divisions of RCA, Motorola, Hitachi, Samsung, etc. They also represented the largest passive supplier in the US called AVX Corp. and sold approximately 50% of their sales to the rapidly growing medical equipment manufacturers in the Twin Cities area.
He founded Datasave Inc. to build no-power electronic signs, and MiniC Corp. to manufacturer ultra-miniature leaded resistors and capacitors and he served on the Board of Directors for Viper Motorcycle and Pranah, an electronic “cloud” company.
In 2013 Bob was drawn toward the world of 3D printing and had the good fortune to become associated with Stratasys Inc., the most advanced manufacturer of 3D machines in the world. Because of his experience with the medical business, Bob selected their highest level machine called an Objet500 Connex3 and started a service bureau company called Advanced Engineering Inc. It is located in a modern building in the heart of “Medical Alley” at 6299 University Ave. near Medtronic, Boston Scientific, and many supporting medical companies.
