Our experience with storage solutions started in 1953, when Bruynzeel started to provide wooden shelving systems. In 1970 the first steel mobile shelving systems were developed and this introduction which forms the basis of the success of our dedicated company as Bruynzeel Storage Systems.

All of this is done with a passionate team of 200 colleagues, 130 of whom work at the head office in Panningen, where production and international distribution take place and where, in addition to commercial teams, also the global marketing team is stationed. 

Within the Marketing team, we are looking for a punctual and structured

You will work closely with our product manager and our R&D team to translate detailed portfolio data and information into different customer facing documentation (i.e. User manuals, installation manuals, technical data sheets etc.) with the different target audiences in mind.  
Due to past changes in our organization, we have faced a gap in documentation maintenance and corresponding structure, which currently results in a backlog and organizational inefficiencies. 
We are therefore looking for someone that is quickly able to validate the different customer needs, evaluate the existing quality and design formats of our documentation and creates a very structured action plan to close some key gaps and setting priorities, but also helps to shape a strategy forward to enable better customer satisfaction, simplification of maintenance and to optimize operational efficiencies.  
Beside product documentation another key aspect will be to structure product (and other) information. Currently information can be found on different locations (intranet, shared drives, websites etc.), which is challenging for existing and new colleagues and creates risks of outdated information being used. Furthermore internal communication needs to be enhanced to distribute key updates and keep the organization better informed.

Product (and other) communication
•    Identify key existing information communication gaps with different internal stakeholders and external (i.e. our network of export dealers) 
•    Create a structured internal communication plan to improve identified gaps and measure internal/external satisfaction

•    You will bring ample experience in turning raw content into relevant and clear information
