Project Mechanic (Halfweg)

Also known as: our assisting foreman who loves adventure

What does your day look like?

Good Morning. Bonjour. Guten Morgen. Buenos dias! Test your language skills, because as a Project Mechanic at Lan you go everywhere


You are responsible for the planning, implementation, testing, commissioning and evaluation of our projects. Have we sold a project? Then we start assembling the machine in one of our production halls (one hall was not enough for the large number of projects that we do). You prepare the project planning, the budget and the quality requirements and ensure that this is followed. Do you have the right people in your team? Is everything still on schedule? If you come across something, you consult with the Project Manager or your colleagues from engineering. At our office in Halfweg or in the production hall in Haarlem.

A number of times a year you are abroad for a few weeks.

There you coordinate the construction of the line, together with local engineers. Because you are also actively involved in the installation as an assisting foreman, you know exactly when the machine is really ready for delivery: if everything works 100% after various tests, and the customer is satisfied! Project completed? Fortunately, you still have time to visit the Australian coast during the weekend: time to relax after three weeks of hard work.

How you get things moving:

MBO or HBO study

Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering or similar.

>5 years

of work experience in international machine building or production.

Experience in

managing a team of technicians.

Fluent in

both Dutch and English.

We offer

A completely new supermarket experience. Huh, what?! Really.


Once you come to work at Lan Handling, shopping will never be the same again. From that day on, you will look at bags of potatoes, carrots, sealed meat packaging and ready-made meals from a completely different perspective. And always that check: yes, we also handle this product with our machines! But, of course, that’s not all:
