Picanol to recruit additional 100 employees in Ypres
The Picanol Group is looking to expand its Ypres production capacity in order to meet worldwide demand for Picanol looms. The Picanol Group expects demand for its looms to continue over the next few months. Backed by the increasing demand for quality and technology and the favorable exchange rate of the euro, the order book is well-filled for the second half of 2015.
To meet the current production peak, the Picanol Group is now actively recruiting 75 temporary workers for its Ypres production plant, with profiles being sought including assembly workers, production workers and CNC operators. In addition, the Group is looking to fill about 25 vacancies in Ypres, including loom technicians, field technicians, process engineers, quality engineers and sales managers. Picanol currently has 1,303 employees in Ypres.
