Job description
You are most welcome to join specialist positions across our business line. We offer versatile tasks with self-development opportunities in our following functions and locations:


  • Sourcing (Salo). In our sourcing department we look for reliable material suppliers. You will be supporting our sourcing engineers for example by maintaining contract data in SAP.

  • Logistics (Salo). Logistics makes sure that the needed material arrives on time and is usable in production when needed. As a summer trainee in logistics we hope you to assist us for example by updating and translating work instructions that are crucial for our operations.
