The more you know, the better you grow
Grodan was at the basis of sustainable horticulture by making it possible to grow on stone wool. Since then we further advanced this way of growing and today we’re market leader enabling our customers to grow in the most efficient and sustainable way. By using less valuable resources like water, space and nutrients they can optimize their crops. Recently we launched a new open software platform which integrates greenhouse data and provides growers better business insights. You will be part of the Grodan Supply Chain department, with 3 colleagues in Quality in Roermond and report to the Supply Chain Director.

Your challenge

Your overall objective is to ensure optimal quality management and on-going improvement of product quality for all Grodan products produced by Rockwool/Grodan – in the Netherlands, Poland, Canada and Russia. This includes 3rd party supplies used in Grodan products. In overview your primary tasks will be to:

  • Complaint handling, including individual complaint handling (for quality complaints), reporting & analysis, agreeing on countermeasures, follow up, judgement and communication to sales.
  • Quality System; maintain the documented system, perform internal audits, support external audits, maintain ISO 9001:2015.
  • Specifications; ensure customer requirements are translated into specifications, harmonize between factories, initiate continuous improvements.
  • Projects; carry out quality improvement projects and support major (investment-) projects on quality matters.

A vital part of your road to success is based on your co-operation with a wide number of stakeholders and especially with our Product Manager & Supply Chain Managers. In this job you are expected to visit the producing factories at least 2 times per year (10-15%).

Your profile

You have a technical degree at minim HBO/B.Sc. level and several years’ experience from working with quality management within industrial companies known for their strong QA culture and practice. As such, you have a solid understanding of systems and processes in a production setup.

On a personal level creating measurable results motivates you, and you have the overview, analytical skills and passion to reach your ambitious goals – without compromising the high-level ethical standards and values in Grodan.

This requires an open and pragmatic attitude across cultural and professional differences  – and the ability to understand a given situation from different angles. Finally, you must have a solid command of English, written and spoken.

Best of both worlds!
Being part of the successful ROCKWOOL Group, we are a relatively small, hence international and dynamic company active in 70 countries.
