  • You intensively collaborate with process engineers and equipment constructors; identify preventative actions and assure the correct maintenance and repair of the equipment. Together with the manufacturers, you identify, execute and evaluate improvement opportunities.
  • In a context in which continuous improvement is a key success factor, you are driven to make maintenance more efficient and cost effective, while the quality and availability of the equipment is guaranteed.
  • You take care of a first analysis of all technical questions regarding the hardware aspects of the machinery in your domain and you ensure an adequate solution. 
  • With your extensive device knowledge you will be able to assist in setting up new processes.
  • Together with your colleagues of the hookup department, you install new equipment in the pilot production line.

In exchange for your talent, passion and expertise, you will join a multicultural and high-tech company, with challenges there for the taking.
