Giving you responsibility

Giving you responsibility

In return, we offer a dynamic, entrepreneurial working environment, where you're given the freedom to make decisions, and get the support you need to make them happen.

Developing your skills

What I do

As site manager, I’m responsible for the safe and efficient management of our site in Changzhou, China. The safety of our site and our employees is a top priority for us, alongside the management and review of our daily OEE (overall equipment effectiveness) figures tracking performance and output. This involves careful monitoring and management of the site’s activities, whilst striving to improve site output to ensure our materials meet customers’ needs and expectations.

Why Low & Bonar

At Low & Bonar, I’m challenged as a local leader to coordinate many different functions and complex projects. It’s exciting to work at a plant with so much support and investment – and to grow with a company that has many products leading the global market, while encouraging us all to work together and perform at our best.

How I’m helping shape the future

Through managing the new Changzhou plant, I focus on helping produce new industrial textiles that lead the market. I believe this innovation will lead us all to a bright future.

What I do

My role is all about ensuring we provide world-class customer service now and in the future. I manage 50 people across eight locations, and develop and implement our five-year customer service roadmap. I always have our customers in mind when recruiting, developing and managing people. By supporting my team, I can ensure we continue to serve our customers as effectively as possible.

Why Low & Bonar

I’m proud of our diverse technology and products. That diversity extends to my responsibilities, as there’s always more to learn and new challenges to solve. Low & Bonar is a truly global workplace, and working and travelling internationally adds a different dynamic. I also like that we’re given the space and support to work the way we think is best. Plus, there are a lot of events and great networking opportunities connecting everyone, so people know who you are. And because I have high visibility across all business units, if I hear about initiatives or challenges, I’m able to connect the dots – and the right people.

How I’m helping shape the future

I take a customer-first approach in my role. This means understanding when we need to do things differently, and embracing change. By collaborating with sales and other teams across the organisation – and working with my team – I make sure we always meet our customers’ expectations.

Evert-Jan Teunissen

Production Coordinator, Fleecing, Arnhem, Netherlands

What I do

I support Low & Bonar’s production process by walking the floor in daily rounds through the Arnhem plant. It’s my responsibility to check on HSE (health, safety and environment), order and cleanliness, work quality and efficiency. Our matrix organisation means I work across it like a spider in a web, making connections and liaising with a range of people and various teams. You’ll find me troubleshooting and solving issues, planning and supporting product trials and development, and collaborating to ensure we reach our production targets. Think of me as the ‘grease’ between production and management, helping things run smoothly.

Why Low & Bonar

Low & Bonar places HSE at the top of its priorities, and fosters an open company culture with people who are always happy to help. Since joining in 2006, I’ve had the chance to work on a variety of projects and tasks – and have felt supported and encouraged to continue improving and innovating our products and processes.

How I’m helping shape the future

By collaborating with others, I focus on producing world-class products that are always evolving to meet our customers’ challenges. All while anticipating issues and ensuring Low & Bonar is a safe place to work.

What I do

I lead our sales, specification and application team across many parts of Europe, all CIS countries, and Turkey. This involves setting sales strategies and team targets, identifying new growth opportunities, and forecasting and reporting our results – as well as leading my team to achieve our objectives. I also work closely with our Product Management, Marketing, and R&D teams, recommending new ways to enhance and develop our products, based on market knowledge and intelligence.

Why Low & Bonar

Low & Bonar acquired my previous company in 2013. Since then, I’ve been able to continue doing the work I love. I’m gradually taking on more responsibilities in a growing region, while working with a great team in a thriving multinational company.

How I’m helping shape the future

I’m always looking for ways to improve our products and sales strategies, and solve problems with my team and colleagues across the business. We all enjoy thinking of ways to keep evolving and innovating. And we co-operate with many different functions and departments to bring even more to the business, and be world-class in every way.

What I do

I have completed two internships with Low & Bonar – one as a practical semester and the other to write my thesis. After finishing it, I was offered a one-year contract supporting the global Interiors and Transportation (I&T) team. I helped execute marketing and communications activities including trade shows, trade magazine interviews and articles, and presentations. I also managed the in4nite project for Dutch Design Week, which challenged 10 entrepreneurial designers to experiment with our Colback material.

Why Low & Bonar

Low & Bonar gave me the perfect launch into my professional life, straight after completing my bachelor’s thesis in international management. It was an invaluable opportunity to learn from great marketing minds in a supportive environment. I also like that Low & Bonar focuses on the future, and invests in the people who can take it there.

How I’m helping shape the future

Working with Low & Bonar, I was exposed to new ideas – and saw how they develop products that become part of everyday life. I’m curious to see how these insights shape my future, as I embark on my Master’s degree.

What I do

I work with coated technical textiles. As a chemist, I find it to be a very complex and fascinating field, with many opportunities to explore new chemical developments. When I see our products in daily life, it often inspires new ideas on how to use them in different areas. I also work with research and development projects and enquiries, and organise the exchange of raw materials such as new additives and polymers. Every day is different, and I work with our product management, production and processing, and purchasing teams to overcome challenges. I also collaborate closely with suppliers to pre-test and develop our products, which often requires us to think ‘outside the box’.

Why Low & Bonar

At Low & Bonar, there is space for self-determination such as independently managing our work. This gives us the chance to grow, and motivates us to strive for exceptional performance. I’m also encouraged to both think independently and collaborate with colleagues on great projects. It’s a really friendly and open-minded environment here. In our team, there’s a strong sense of cohesion. We do lots of team building ranging from badminton, visiting textile museums and social evenings. We also have regular discussions to define and shape our personal and professional goals, and I’m always inspired to take on different responsibilities.

How I’m helping shape the future

In my role, I plan product trials and development to ensure we lead the way in our markets, improve our products, and expand our current portfolio. With every challenge, we start with the solution, creating space for new ideas, projects and possibilities to emerge.

What I do

With a research background, I look after our green roof product portfolio. My work encompasses strategic planning, pricing and budgeting, and marketing.

As well, I work with the sales team to strengthen our network for greater growth, and with marketing to promote our products.

Why Low & Bonar

I like that Low & Bonar encourages us to openly communicate and innovate together. By collaborating with different people in a global company, I discover different and better ways of working to reach our goals. I also appreciate the chance to work from home with flexible hours, while keeping connected with colleagues and customers.

How I’m helping shape the future

My main focus is keeping our green roof products competitive, so I always have an eye on new technologies. I also constantly analyse technical performance and market data, and ensure new products are rolled out on time and within budget.
