Jaco Vlaanderen: Offshore & Transport

Published in category: People

Production Manager, Offshore & Transport – Total Supply Chain

Employed at Damen: 1 year

“With 13 project managers and dozens of projects underway, O&T – myself included – has some great challenges ahead. The demand for ships in the oil, gas and offshore industry is growing as worldwide demand for raw materials rises. Damen will undoubtedly be able to meet some of the market’s needs. My aim for 2013 – along with many new employees – is to see that Damen tackles all our projects efficiently and effectively. What initially drew me to Damen was the pleasant, open-hearted ambience and the many opportunities for professional development. My colleagues are always ready to help out, we get together in the cafeteria and at company parties and celebrations. All that makes our work more enjoyable and it ultimately pays off in the end product. I recently transferred from Damen Technical Cooperation to Offshore & Transport. That’s another thing about Damen: anyone who feels they’re ready for the next step or thinks they might do better in another unit is given the opportunity.”
