Innovative Snijders sets an example for businesses in Zeeland

the province Zeeland is currently facing a challenge. There is a big shortage of employees in different work areas. The municipality Hulst has joined forces with different businesses to address this challenge.

From this a collaboration has emerged with Valencia (Spain) where the unemployment is still very high. The collaboration between Valencia and Hulst is focused on sharing each others knowledge and experience regarding the job market. International Job Challenge has brought both municipalities together.

On tuesday August 27th a delegation of businesses from Zeeland and the municipality of Hulst have visited the office in Valencia. During this meeting director Curro Verhagen explained why the choice was made to open a location in Valencia and how Snijders Group has made this happen. There also has been spoken about possibilities to increase the co-operation in the future. The organisation Tragel is going to use this collaboration by recruiting nurses in Valencia through International Job Challange. Tragel considers their new colleagues from Valencia as the new residents of the municipality Hulst.

The meeting has also been valuable for Snijders Engineering Group in making contact with the local governements and in making an appointment for a further acquantance with 17 municipalities and businesses. These contacts are important for Snijders Engineering Group to intensify the contact with the local governement and to reinforce the connection with Valencia.

Snijders takes a chance with Engineers in Spain

The substantial expansion of Snijders Ingenieursgroep has not been unnoticed. Peter Scholtes from the local newspaper in Eindhoven (Eindhovens Dagblad) has approached Snijders for an interview with director Curro Verhagen. The page wide interview focuses mainly on the development of Snijders in Spain.

Curro Verhagen explains that due to the huge shortage in high quality Structural Engineers in The Netherlands Snijders has taken the step to open an office in Spain. The article also illustrates the activities of Snijders as an important and crucial link in (precast)construction and explains the collaboration with Stabiel Management, and International Job Challenge.

On behalf of Snijders Ingenieursgroep a big thank you to Peter Scholtes and Eindhovens Dagblad for the interest and the nice article!

Snijders Valencia is bursting at the seams

Alot has happened since the start of Snijders Engineering Group in Valencia a few months ago, in November 2018 the first Revit Modelers have started working in the beautiful office of Regus Valencia. After an intensive training they have been working on various Snijders Ingenieursgroep projects at full throttle these last few months.

The first expansion didn’t take long because a group of Constructive Engineers joined the team in February 2019. They also went through an intensive training and are very busy with all the challenging Snijders projects at this moment.

The Regus office was getting pretty full so a new location had to be sought quickly because the Tekla Modelers starting in March also needed a desk to work at. This new location announced itself at the Parque Tecnológico Valencia, thé business and technology park in Valencia, in the shape of the Wellness office. After a few adjustments the office has been transformed into an open office landscape, fully furnished with new furniture, the newest equipment and of course a nice canteen.

Subsidiary company International Job Challenge is also housed in the same office and together with the new colleagues that are starting in April makes a total count of 20 employees represented in Valencia. All enthusiastic and talented Engineers who will make the Snijders projects a success together with the colleagues in Veldhoven.

So there has been a massive growth in a few months time in Valencia. The new office gives Snijders Engineering Group the possibility to grow even further in the future. This growth will not take too long because a group of new Revit and Tekla Modelers will join the team very soon!

To all the new colleagues a warm welcome to the Snijders group and the best of luck with this new challenge!

Excellent achievement during ISO 9001 audit

During the annual ISO 9001 audit the managementsystem of Snijders Ingenieursgroep was tested. The accent this audit was put on realizing some points of improvement and the way Snijders Ingenieursgroep has handled market threats.
