What our people think about us
"In 1989, I already had 15 years of experience with construction cranes. I wanted to take on a new challenge. At that time, Arcomet was starting with tower cranes. That had enormous appeal for me. I was quite keen to get started on that path. This was the start of Arcomet West Flanders. At that time I was driving around a large van with spare parts for Arcomet. The Arcomet Beernem branch was established in 1993. I love challenges. That’s why I took on the special assemblies for both the self-erecting and tower cranes. After that, Arcomet soon began to operate globally. This gave me the opportunity to be present in Montpellier and Berlin for the after-sales service of on-site assemblies. The larger tower cranes increasingly became a hobby of mine. As a result, I was also sent out more and more often to provide after-sales service for special assemblies. Everywhere in Europe and also far outside Europe such as in America, Asia and Africa. In 2004, I got the chance to take on a commercial challenge within Arcomet. I gladly accepted that challenge. Assembling and servicing the cranes were henceforth a thing of the past. From that moment onward, my focus was on the rental of construction cranes. The sale of the construction cranes was added in 2013. I look back with pride on my career at Arcomet. Arcomet has largely determined my career. I would still like to work for Arcomet for a bit longer. That way I can retire with a good feeling and look back on my life with great memories! "Read more
"I have been working at Arcomet since October 2007.Read more
2017 was an anniversary year for me. Before I started at Arcomet, I worked as a merchandiser at a biotech company. When our CEO at the time, Dirk Theyskens, suggested that I apply for a job at Arcomet, I didn't hesitate for even a second. Arcomet was looking for a representative for the French-speaking part of the country and given my teacher training in French, that struck me as an interesting challenge. After three exciting job interviews, I started my career at Arcomet in October 2007 as a member of the commercial team. But a year and a half later, my job was already at risk. Due to the poor economic situation, Arcomet was forced to let some people go in 2009. As luck would have it, it just so happened that a position became vacant in the planning department. Arcomet gave me a chance to stay on board. Even if it be in another department. Originally only for a while. But since it is difficult, of course, to predict the impact of such an economic crisis, I ended up working at the planning department for five years. To be honest, in the beginning I certainly didn't like it all that much. But in retrospect it did turn out to be a very good learning experience for getting to know the Arcomet product and the ins and outs of the company better. The economy gradually recovered and in 2014, Arcomet again entrusted me with reinforcing the commercial team. I have again been part of that for over 4 years now. I feel completely at home there. I am enormously grateful to Arcomet for having givien me the opportunity at the time to fill a different position within the company. As you can read...I am a satisfied employee! "
"After a first working experience in accounting at Ford Genk, I ended up with Arcomet 23 years ago through a temporary employment agency. Arcomet was looking for someone who already had some experience with accounting and who spoke German. It just so happened that I worked for Ford at their Cologne location. I got the job and that was the start of an exciting adventure. The first weeks were the hardest. I got technical terms hurled at me that I had never heard of. But my colleagues supported me and soon I learned more about the cranes. Never would I have thought that I'd find this fascinating. After a few years of working at the German accounting department, the Germany branch was merged with a German company in Zülpich which had its own accountants. My work became superfluous. Arcomet, however, did not leave me in the lurch and temporarily offered me a job taking care of reception. Here, I naturally came into direct contact with our business relations much more often. I soon discovered that I wanted to make this my thing. At a certain point a position became vacant in the sales department for internal sales. That was my opportunity. Now, nearly 10 years later, I’m still working in the sales department and I really feel at home there. In the meantime I have been able to take a few sales training courses, I have gone along to trade fairs and have continued learning a lot. I really enjoy my work and I have super nice colleagues. I live barely 15 minutes from my workplace. As a mother, I think that is a great bonus point. As far as I am concerned, I hope the adventure carries on long into the future. "Read more
"I started working at Arcomet 19 years ago on a temporary basis as a turner/milling machine operator. After six months I got my permanent appointment. Then the adventure started. In the beginning I was able to respond wherever people needed help on the shop floor. After that, I was asked to inspect the self-erecting cranes in the field and I helped in the overhaul department. After having worked in various jobs on the shop floor for five years, I started as a field service engineer and went out on the road. In this respect, work as a service engineer was not limited to this country. I also got the chance to travel abroad to assemble Arcomet self-erecting cranes. Now, 19 years later, I am still working as a field service technician for Arcomet. To me, my job doesn't feel like work. It’s become a part of my life, as well as a real passion. The freedom and working independently cause me to find my work fascinating – full of variety and adventure. "Read more
