Background of this vacancy

Since 2009, GBS International has been specializing in gearboxes and the machining of parts for the Dutch industry. And with success. Because in 2009 we started with a handful of technical colleagues, but we have now grown to five branches in the Netherlands and we have more 160 colleagues richer. Due to our extreme customer focus and various innovations that we have brought to the market, we have a market leading position. Much of our work still takes place in the BeNeLux, but our service engineers are regularly flown in all over the world for projects in gearbox repair and maintenance.

Whereas we usually recruit people from The Netherlands, we have noticed that there is a group of highly skilled engineers from Spain who are looking for an opportunity to work and live in the Netherlands.


We are a Dutch company with a real family feeling. Together with all our colleagues, we put the customer first, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our keywords are: passion for technology, an entrepreneurial attitude and thinking in possibilities. We ask a lot from our employees, but of course they also get a lot in return. Walk into our workshop and ask any colleague what he appreciates about his work at GBS International, and the answer is likely to be that he enjoys the freedom and positive atmosphere in the company.

Advantages of working with GBS International



At GBS International we ask a lot of our colleagues, but we think it is important that they are well rewarded for this.
