FHI’s mission is to be the collective of all technological companies active on the Dutch market as suppliers of industrial electronics, building automation, industrial automation, laboratory technology and medical technology. Since the foundation of the association in 1956, then named ‘Het Instrument’, the association helps member companies with collective marketing activities.
The association provides specific services for members, on a non-profit basis. FHI has exclusive branche specific experts availble for its members. Members can also benefit from a join approach and contact network within FHI.
FHI and the affiliated sector organizations jointly form a power factor that is used to represent the interests of the affiliated members in governments, politics and all kinds of social groups. This advocacy often takes place via lobby circuits, more and less formal.
