Business Unit Manager

We, NEDCON, produce steel storage systems for manual non-automatic, semi-automatic and fully automatic warehouses. These are impressive projects, sometimes over 30 metres high, which we are able to construct thanks to our knowledge, project experience and innovative strength. We develop, test and produce these systems in-house. Our products are sold across the entire world and installed in the warehouses of international organisations, including well-known mail-order companies, webshops and supermarkets. Along with our head office in the Netherlands, we also have branches in various European countries and the United States. Our team consists of more than 500 colleagues!

Together with about 30 colleagues from the Manual Projects Business Unit, we provide end customers in Europe such as DHL, Zalando and Scania with manual warehouse racks. We offer high-quality storage solutions with quality products tailored to the specific requirements of the customer. The business unit coordinates and ensures the quality of the entire process (sales, engineering, project management, planning, production, assembly and after sales).

We have an excellent reputation to uphold, as our strapline says: ‘If it can be done, consider it done’. In every project, we must live up to the expectations and trust of our customers. This requires an authentic, socially-minded, energetic and knowledgeable leader, who pushes themself to do the best they can and is able to motivate others to do the same.

As a Business Unit Manager, you will be a member of the NEDCON Executive Management Team (NEM) and report directly to the CEO.
