About the job

Are you a mechanic, do you have good technical insight and are you eager to learn? Then we are looking for you!

You will start the day together with your colleagues in the assembly department. You will all collect with the team leader, who will go through the day with you. There is something different on the schedule every day, because no trailer is the same. Every customer wants different options on the trailer and you have the necessary product knowledge, to make each trailer to the customer's specific wishes. The planning is discussed, the forecast is known, you can get started.

You will read the technical drawing with accompanying instructions and you build the different parts. Slowly you see the individual parts change into an impressive trailer. Before you know it, it is already time for a break and you and your colleagues walk to the canteen for a sandwich or a cup of soup.

After the break, you go back to the trailer you are working on, so that the trailer can be delivered to the customer on time, according to schedule. It often takes several days to build a trailer, because you are dealing with a complex and versatile vehicle. The end of the day is approaching, you start to clear your workplace and prepare for the next day. The buzzer rings, the day is over. Before you leave the factory you will see the terminal tractor driving away with your trailer, ready for the final checks. With a proud feeling you can go home, without you, the trailer would not have driven there.
