crane technician


Job description

  • You will repair the cranes and you will perform the (preventive) maintenance.
  • You will perform small adjustment to the controls.
  • You will regularly check the safety and the emergency stop systems.
  • You will perform the maintenance of the electric motors and replace parts of the drives or frequency controls.
  • You will keep the spreaders in mechanical and hydraulic top form.
  • You will communicate fluently with your colleagues about every step you take.


You have a professional Bachelor's degree in a technical or technological study, such as electro mechanics, automation, electricity or electronics (or equal through experience). Did you obtain a master's degree in industrial sciences? You will definitely be able to fully use your problem-solving skills here.

Just left school? Or have you been working for years already? We welcome every profile. Your interest and experience in terms of electro mechanics, automation, power, electricity and electronics is decisive. You are proficient in PLC control (Siemens S5 / S7-300) for fault analysis, frequency controllers, electric motors and sensors. You love to learn, you dare to take initiative and you work perfectly autonomously. In addition, you are resistant to a portion of stress. Getting your hands dirty and tormenting your brain? With pleasure, even if it is in the open air. Or ... at a great height. Our portal cranes often reach more than 100 meters high: fear of heights is not appropriate here.
