IGS GeboJagema is a high end tool shop, specialized in the design, production and validation of plastic injection molds. Our customers are global OEM’s and CMO’s which are active in the market segments Healthcare, Packaging and Optical. In these segments we distinguish ourselves with our fully automated production process, our engineering capabilities and our extensive validation capabilities. More than 90% of our tools are exported outside the Netherlands, of which about half is exported to the USA.
Because of the already large customer base in the USA we are looking to expand our footprint in the USA and are opening a shop beginning of 2023. Initially the shop will focus to be able to have all customer relations locally in the USA. This means the goal is to have by the end of 2023 a shop containing: Sales, Service, Engineering and Validation
During 2024 we will then expand further with production capabilities to also be able to make adjustments and optimizations and with that also small production series.
Are you interested to work in a challenging environment and help us built our USA footprint, then we are looking for you!
As Project engineer you are responsible for the development of new injection molds and/or parts of the tools. The design of the tools is done in several phases. Already during the quotation phase is engineering involved to offer the best solution with a first setup of a pre design. This initial sketch with additional DFM studies is sent with the quote to the customer. As soon as the order is in, the project is handed over from sales towards project management. As project engineer you are involved in this as well and you are responsible for the technical part (design) of the project. After the kick off with the customer you will develop the initial mold concept to a full production ready design.
As project engineer you will be part of an engineering team of 8 to 10 engineers, of which we are looking to have 2 engineers based in the USA. You will be reporting directly to the COO.
