The role

In your role as Buyer, you are responsible for the correct evaluation of the material offered, and you make sure that the deal is closed for the best price. You ensure the optimization and correct execution of the purchasing process. You assess potential opportunities and prepare offers. We focus on a market worldwide. You do this for bearings, electric motors, and other related material. You are also the point of contact for suppliers, as well as for the other departments within the company.

You make sure all information regarding delivery of orders is up-to-date. Together with the finance department you follow up on all invoices, credit notes, and payment dates. We are looking for a professional partner who is not easily put off. Last, but certainly not least, you will end up in a nice team of 6 enthusiastic colleagues. You’ll occasionally forget that you are working!
