Therefore Militracks, the event which the Tracks & Trade event (this edition) is profoundly connected to, has been rescheduled to May 14th and 15th 2022. Furthermore, the travelling restrictions for our overseas members are prolonged.

As Tracks & Trade we want to uphold our high quality and informative values, so we also have decided to reschedule our unique event and auction launch to May 2022.

That is why, in the second week of May 2022, our guests are warmly invited to join the Tracks & Trade event during Militracks 2022:
• May 12th 2022: We host a deep-dive symposium at our on-site tailored venue in Nederweert, with a line-up of renowned speakers.

The Team of Tracks & Trade is really looking forward to welcome you!

BAIV renewed SCC Certification (SCC* 2017/6.0)

BAIV renewed SCC Certification (SCC* 2017/6.0)

BAIV, as a company, has already a SCC certificate since June 2015.
SCC (Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) Checklist for Contractors) is a high-end qualification certified by a notified body (in our case the TüV). It ensures that both employers and employees are aware of the dangers around them. In addition, a VCA certificate / certification gives a clear indication that a company meet all safety, health, and environmental regulations and requirements and that both the employer and employees are fully aware of these. 
However, the certification will be reviewed on a yearly basis it expires after 5 years. Therefore, it must be renewed, in this case also in accordance with all new updated rules and regulations and for our complete new Nederweert facility!
On May 12th 2021 the recertification was planned. A lot of work has been done by Ivo Jr. and the entire BAIV team, supported by Stan Lukien, a Senior Safety Expert from LOCC in the run-up to this fully new system of certification.
Result was that BAIV proudly passed the TüV audit without any remarks!

BAIV supplied Armored Personnel Carrier (including driver) for the Dutch TV series ‘Thuisfront’ (Home front)

In September and October 2020 BAIV participated in total 6 Shooting days in the recordings of the Dutch mini-series ‘Thuisfront’. This series, produced by BNN/VARA, starts upcoming Sunday May 9th at 20.20 hrs on NPO3.

The four-chapter series follows a battalion (400 to 2.000 soldiers) after their return from an international mission in Uruzgan, Afghanistan in 2010. The soldiers are traumatized by an incident during their mission. Their patrol was confronted with an IED (improvised explosive device) explosion followed by an ambush by the Taliban. However, the air support they requested led to civilian casualties and an investigation into the incident.
The war is still in their minds and at home they must fight for recognition of their work and mission in Afghanistan. The series is directed by Tim Oliehoek.

In the first days of the recording the APC (FV434) of BAIV was driven by Workshop manager Ruud Caspers. The Corona Pandemic was very active in these days resulting in a lot of restrictions. However, in the series this will for sure not be observed.!
The filming was not only restricted to the set but Ruud was also requested to drive the APC on several public roads. In the series Ruud is driving ‘under hatch’ giving the idea that the actor Tom van Dijk, played by Casper Nusselder, is driving the APC.

However, for the 2nd part, filmed on October 25th till 27th, were recordings were planned near The Hague Ruud tested positively on Corona 2 days prior to the shooting starts!  
A quick decision was necessary, so it was decided that Ivo Rigter Sr. has to drive the APC.
Sr. never drove the unit ‘under hatch’ so he was ‘a bit nervous’.
Finally for Sr. this became a unique experience which he enjoyed very (verry) much! 

From the production team BAIV intensively worked together with Annemarie van Ulden (Production coordination) and Michiel Collenteur (Recording leader).

Especially Michiel Collenteur made a great impression. What a drive this man has and an enormous eye for, often small, details.
Annemarie with her team well organized al details with respect to documentation, permits, schedule and (highly respected) the payment.

The main characters in ‘Thuisfront’ are a.o. played by Bram Suijker, Lykele Muus, Mamoun Elyounoussi and Melody Klaver.
The screenplay was written by Paul Jan Nelissen, Peter De Graef, Jeroen Horrevorts and Elisabeth Lodeizen.

The mini series ‘Thuisfront’ (Homefront) will be the upcoming 4 Sundays at 20.20 hrs CEST on Dutch Television, Channel NPO3.
