“The plant in Foxhol has an environment where you can have large impact. There are a lot of challenges and improvement possibilities within process optimization and safety. The chemical process of the plant is relatively simple, however the microscopic process is highly complex and financial impact relatively high.
This could be a great first step into pharma for an ambitious process engineer. There are many challenges regarding machine safety and dangerous chemicals. In this job you have to work closely with operations in projects on other plants and on headquarter level. This asks for good communication and interpersonal skills. As a Process Engineer you are highly visible in the DFE Pharma organization and therefore there are many career opportunities within DFE Pharma, but also within FrieslandCampina or IPTEC.”
