We are now looking for a supervisor who will be in charge of the Service Technicians and the Electrics and Mechanics. Your employees go on-site to overhaul machines at the customer's premises or -if more thorough maintenance is required- disassemble the machines so that maintenance or repair of the machine can be done in the workshop. You ensure a good working climate in which the employees are motivated to achieve the required objectives.

  • You check whether the work can be done safely and you make the accompanying documents in order

  • You perform overhauls and repairs

  • You disassemble machines for maintenance or repair in the workshop. This concerns pumps, fans, blowers, gearboxes, ... In short: all mechanical equipment

  • In case of disassembly you will, after the necessary drawings, dismantle the machine and prepare it for transport

  • After the revision or repair in the workshop you will install and align the machine again on-site

  • You keep the customer up-to-date about the steps that will be taken

  • You make up time reports and report on mechanical measurements

  • You ensure a safe and healthy working environment within the maintenance service with attention to well-being and the environment

  • What do you need to bring?

  • You have passion for your job and are interested in the latest developments in your domain

  • You have knowledge of rotating machines (steam turbines, pumps, gearboxes, compressors, etc.)

  • You have also gained experience in the alignment of directly coupled machines

  • Do you have a basic knowledge of mounting and dismounting bearings? That is a plus

  • You have experience in managing people

  • You do not have a 9-5 mentality if the work at a customer's is delayed or if certain matters are expected at the weekend
