A fantastic team
Alumess has a fantastic team based in the Netherlands, Germany, Vietnam and China. In China, we now have 85 employees. For more than 60 years, we’ve been dedicated to one mission: producing high-quality products while entering into long-term partnerships. Our people want to invest in this kind of partnership with you, and you notice it from the very first contact.
We combine our own production with smart procurement. The staff of our procurement department are very well-versed in the China and Vietnam markets. By controlling the entire supply chain from raw materials, design, production, assembly to logistical support, we’re able to offer high-quality products at competitive prices.
Monique UbbinkFinancial Administration
In a growing organization it is important to keep an overview. I am mainly concerned with administrative and logistical activities. I like to sort things out and make them clear. One thing I've noticed is that the deliveries have become much more structured since we started producing high-quality products in China in 2011.
Theo HarinkInternational Sales Manager
I am the contact for existing and new relations. In my 35 years of experience in sales no single project has been the same. The challenge is to listen - and ask the right questions - to the customer, in order for us to deliver a tailor-made service. I always get happy when the customers return, and the products don't.
Pieter MolsKey Account Manager China
I have been living in Ningbo for 4,5 years and ever more often I am noticing the differences (and advantages) in producing in China compared to Europe. At Alumess we keep in close communication with our employees. These short lines make it possible for us to produce quickly and responsibly, while upholding our high European standards of quality.
Julia HoferichterFinance & Control
It was quite a leap into the unknown when, in 2011, we left for China with our 2 children. I make sure that everything is well organised internally and I also deal with financial matters. On my initiative, all of our employees are now wearing safety shoes and smart Alumess company clothing, which is something you rarely see in China. We also invest in working conditions!
It’s great to be able to make beautiful metal and aluminium products in China for Dutch, European and other international companies. We’ve now built a company that has grown from 3 to 85 employees since 2011 and we’re still growing. The Asian culture differs greatly from European culture, but we know now where to pay attention to regarding producing and sourcing in Asia.
