Royal Netherlands Air Force chooses Samsung Galaxy S9 Enterprise Edition

Last updated:

Samsung announced today that the Royal Netherlands Air Force has chosen the Samsung Galaxy S9 Enterprise Edition as their corporate smartphone of choice for 6,000 employees, with the Netherlands’ Ministry of Defense, citing strategic considerations as the driving force behind their choice.

On November 29, the first of the 6,000 smartphones was ceremonially handed to Deputy Commander of the Royal Netherlands Air Force, Major General Mario Verbeek, by Ron Kolkman, Director, Joint IV Command (JIVC) at the Ministry of Defense.

Subsequently, Major General Verbeek and Commodore Richard Laurijssen passed it on to Sergeant 1 Romy, a Chinook technician of the 980 Squadron.

“The Commando Luchtstrijdkrachten (‘CLSK’, Royal Netherlands Air Force Command) is in the middle of a transition to becoming a 5th-Generation Air Force. Acting as information-driven as possible is central to this,” states Major General Mario Verbeek.

“This ambition, along with our drive to enhance best employment practices and the most effective usage of our staff, has led us at the CLSK decide to provide all our employees with the Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphone.”

The Galaxy S9 Enterprise Edition is an enterprise smartphone that delivers the built-in simplicity, customisation and mobile security for your organisation to stay ahead.
