Step inside the dynamic world of packaging and disposables. Experience the drive and vivacity of an ambitious family business in which the employees form the foundations of the organisation. That’s working for Paardekooper.
We set great store by a personal approach, but at the same time Paardekooper has a performance-oriented culture. We give our employees the freedom, space and opportunity to develop themselves. Ownership is definitely appreciated, entrepreneurship is important to us. We also stimulate education and training and regularly organise both internal and external training courses. There’s a great deal of knowledge within Paardekooper. Knowledge we gladly share with our colleagues to help them reach a higher level.
We believe being ambitious and enjoying your job go together. Which is why we offer our employees all kinds of facilities: a listening ear, a helping hand, training and, because we believe people work better together if they also have fun together, we also organise regular company outings and on the last Friday afternoon of every month one of our departments organises a themed get-together in our stylish company canteen and bar.
Our approach enables all our employees to make the best of themselves.
