Picanol to add 50 temporary workers at Ypres plant

The Picanol Group announced that it is soon recruiting 50 additional temporary workers at its Ypres plant.

As previously announced, the global market for new weaving machines is still characterized by volatility, forcing the Picanol Group to focus heavily on flexibility in order to handle production peaks.

To successfully meet global customer demand in a timely manner, Picanol is planning to adjust the production capacity in Ypres in the short term. The increase in the demand for Picanol weaving machines is supported by the success of the new weaving machines and the competitive euro exchange rate.

To handle the current production peak, the Picanol Group is looking to strengthen the workforce in Ypres with 50 temporary workers. The profiles that the Picanol Group is looking for include  technicians, production workers, CNC-operators, and deburrers.

In addition, the group has approximately 25 other vacancies, such as R&D Engineers, IT, Service Technicians, Field Technicians, and International Trainees. The vacancies are published on the corporate website. Currently, the Picanol Group employs 1,230 people in Ypres.

The Picanol Group expects the increased demand for Picanol weaving machines to continue in the coming months, and is confident regarding the second half of 2012. On Tuesday 28 August 2012 (before the opening of the stock exchange), the Picanol Group will announce its results for the first half of 2012. As previously announced, the Picanol Group expects a decrease in turnover for the first half of 2012, in line with that of the first quarter.

The Picanol Group is an international, customer-oriented group specialized in the development, production and sale of weaving machines and other high-technology products, systems and services.
