Plastics is our passion. Yours too? Then we should get to know each other! As a leading manufacturer of high-performance plastic compounds, powders, masterbatches and granules and as a distributor of standard thermoplastics, we need people at our site in Kerpen who share our enthusiasm for innovative plastic products.

We offer specialists from a varied range of disciplines, among them process engineers, application engineers,

and plastic technicians – diverse perspectives, responsible tasks and work that’s fun. We promise you’ll never get bored with us!

If you want to make our plastic products even better, safer, more comfortable or more sustainable, then a wide range of opportunities are waiting for you with us in engineering, production and development!

Application Engineer

Im Engineering entwickeln Anwendungstechniker gemeinsam mit Kollegen aus der Entwicklung Kunststofflösungen

Which plastic compound is actually the best for drill housings, for sockets, for door cladding, for a toy or for HGV instruments? You’ve got the right answers to these questions as an application engineer. You support our customers and advise them on choosing the right solution from our comprehensive product portfolio – also on site with the customer, depending on the project.

In the event that, despite the many existing compounds, the right one isn’t among them, you develop a “customized material” together with your colleagues from development. Here, you work closely with other application engineers and together with our sales team all over Europe and draw on the knowledge of lots of existing applications in the automotive field, in the electronics industry and in many other markets. Sound knowledge of English is also a must-have.

As a technical expert, you coordinate the development projects together with your colleagues from development, lend support in the processing of plastics (injection molding, extrusion) and provide technical assistance with the component design (simulations, construction guidelines). Together with your customers, you support the project until series maturity. In the process, you always have the requirements of our customers and your eye on the current regulations and standards.

  • Do you share our passion for plastics?
  • Have you completed technical studies in the field of plastics?
  • Have prior knowledge in the plastics market?
  • Like working across departments and internationally?

Then we should get to know each other!

Working in close collaboration and coordination with your colleagues from product management

you are responsible for long-term projects as well as for short-term problem-solving activities.

Alongside your colleagues, you generate all necessary documents, such as e.g. time studies, FMEA, process flow charts and working guidelines for controlling production and create the foundations for the correct provision of materials in production. As contact partner for process adjustments in product or recipe changes, you support the problem-solving groups and formulate the resulting training for production.
