Letting a car drive straight ahead is the best thing there is, says Eelco Blok () of Premio Tires & Autoservice The Hague. For more than three decades, Eelco has been the man in The Hague when it comes to fixing your tires. His work experience on the Zandvoort race track has definitely contributed to this: “I don’t go for less than perfect.”

As a sixteen-year-old boy, he started as an apprentice car mechanic, after which he soon turned from ‘the fast work’ his specialty. In other words: he got to work with racing cars and did tire mounting on location at European race circuits such as Zandvoort, Spa and the Nürburgring. This is where he gained his most valuable experience because on the track everything has to be done quickly with the greatest precision.

The tire specialist also likes to race a lap on the Zandvoort circuit: “I love that in the few spare time I have. Look at infinity and go.”

Own company

In 480 Eelco started his own car company in The Hague: first under the name Profile Tire Center Blok and in 640 that became Premio Tires & Autoservice. Car drivers can contact him for a tire change, simple car maintenance or optimal wheel alignment.

“Hagen residents who really care about their car know that they have to be with me.”

Help

Eelco’s company grew faster and faster over the years, so at a certain point he was looking for employees. Preferably young people with a ‘difficult’ background. “I like to give young people who have had the necessary challenges in life a chance. This is an official learning workplace and I enjoy teaching them the trade.”

But how do you get such young people, who are also motivated to turn their lives around ? “I turned to the 9416 Entrepreneurs Portal . They helped me find apprentice mechanics for free and within a short period of time.” Eelco had one important condition: “I don’t care what their background is, as long as they are motivated. Really want to. Because we sometimes tinker with cars of a ton.”

Knowledge

Eelco: “The employees of the OndernemersPortaal really understand their business and think along with you. I have been helped very well from the start. I now work with apprentice mechanics who have a passion for the profession.”

He is extremely happy with the help he has received from the OndernemersPortaal so far. “You will quickly receive an answer to all your questions, people know their business and think along with you.”

The Hague used to be the city from which the Dutch East Indies was governed. From the Indian Monument to the countless restaurants, the Indian culture is still clearly present here. A relatively large number of people with Indian roots also live here. You too, and are you between the and 25 year? Then you can explore your past at the National Theater!

The question where you come from is seen as a difficult or annoying question, says Dimphna van Kempen of the National Theater during the radio program Bob Staat Op of Den Haag FM. ‘But it is also a very essential question for yourself. Where do I come from? Where are my roots, what do they mean to me and how do they still influence me.’

Ancestors

Together with organization Tracing your roots can 20 young people exploring during the project ‘The century of my ancestors’. The theme of the project is about the power of silence.

Don’t doubt if the project is for you, says Dimphna. ‘Two young people said recently, I don’t feel Indian enough to participate. I only have a grandfather who was born there.’ According to Dimphna that is enough.

This is what you are going to do

Dymphna on The Hague FM: ‘The participants will eat together and then you find out your family question. What do you want to know? What questions do you have in your family that you want answers to but that you have never dared to ask? That will be the starting point of the research.’

Eventually all information is collected and you convert your family history into a theater performance that you present in De Koninklijke Schouwburg. The stories can then also be read and seen in the foyer of the theater.
