ISOVER has its head office and production in Billesholm outside Helsingborg. The unit employs approximately 380 people and supplies products for both building insulation and technical insulation. The production is based on the World Class Manufacturing program (WCM) to ensure a high level of safety, quality and productivity.
ISOVER is going through a major change. The Management team is more or less totally new with the assignment to shape the organization and culture ready for a strong future. During the late summer of 2018, Benoit Pirlot, a heavyweight within ISOVER's global factory management, was recruited.
ISOVER is facing a period of several major projects ahead of itself, both in the form of new investments and upgrades of processes and equipment. When it comes to optimizing the production processes itself there is a high-competent team within the Technical Department.

The Process & Development Engineer will be a member of the Saint-Gobain ISOVER ´Process Engineer community´ with all its 40 production plants worldwide. In this community you can find a lot of best practise/best available technologies and R&D latest innovations.
