For this work area, we are looking for a Forming Production Engineer who wants to delve into these precision mechanical techniques and will develop further into a specialist in the field. You get an extensive training period in production, stamp workshop, and NPI.

You work from a support group in which people from different disciplines are represented. Projects are often taken up in teams and have a highly innovative character. You also work on a network of contacts within the organization and you consult with external customers and suppliers. 


You enjoy working with technology, but you also like keeping yourself busy. You have organizational talent, are "hands on", have analytical skills, and a strong sense of standards. As a person you are decisive, assertive, communicative and you have influencing skills.

Other job requirements:
You have at least a completed technical HBO education (preferably mechanical engineering/"fijnmechanica" or precision mechanics). You are able to convert your knowledge into practical actions.
