• New Ideas can change the way Technology is used

  • The best way to do things may not be the way they have been done before

  • Applied Concept Technologies

We Apply new Concepts to improve the way Technology is used.

Our Work


Here is a taste of some of the projects we have worked on so far. Some are still a work in progress. Many more projects are currently underway and will in time be found here.


Our skills & specialties

These are the main technology's we use to create our innovations.

Vacuum Infusion
Carbon fiber production

By utilizing the most advance carbon fiber production techniques, including vacuum infusion, and having them available in-house, we are able to produce complex, very lightweight products with relative ease.

Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical and control system Engineering

By being mechanical engineers we have the capacity to build tools an machinery that we need to build the products we want. This allows us to try new things without having to rely on external parties. And using implementing our own control systems we have full control over resulting machines.

Rapid Prototyping
Rapid Prototyping

Having in-house 3D printers lets us try out thing's quickly and cost effectively and gives us the ability use complex geometry to solve problems. We are also developing a CNC milling machine to use for high precision parts production.

About us


We are 4 young engineers with mainly mechanical engineering background. We have know each other for almost two decades now. This makes us a very efficient team capable of rapid and well coördinated development. We founded the ACT foundation with the goal of furthering Technology. The way we do this is to to utilize new technologies and combine them to create new, better products. Because we have very few preconceptions we can create new things or do things in new ways.

    Abel Gerritse
    Creative Director

    Combining mechanical engineering and creative technology gives me a unique insight in the creation of new products. The result is 'tinkering' on a professional level to quickly and reliably make new products.

  • Bob Stöpler
    Bob Stöpler
    Mechatronics Engineer

    I started out in precision mechanics. Started making carbon fiber products at a early age (such as my own frames). During college I got into contact with control systems. As a consequence I started building my own mechatronics projects. After working for several years on Big data and mechatronics projects for my profession I went back to my roots at EDCO Engineering as Lead Engineer.

    Koen Overbeek
    Automotive Engineer

    I am a automotive engineer currently working on my graduation project for my MSc in Automotive engineering. Have a high aptitude for perfection and optimization of dynamical systems using mathematical simulations using MATLAB and Simulink.

  • Eduart Stigter
    Eduart Stigter
    Light-Weight Engineer

    As a mechanical engineer with lightweight as speciality I specialize in making things move more efficiently. By making things lighter they can move faster. That's the way I like to work.


Our recent developments

    Guess the subject!

  • Carbon steer in action
    Carbon handlebar in action!
    March 3, 2014

    The MkI Racing handlebar we developed has been use by Nick Stöpler, who has used it to win the 2012 Dutch Nationals 50km 'NK 50km', and win third place in the 2012 'Zesdaagse van Amsterdam'. Since then the MkII has been developed and is still in use today.
