Employee story

Martin van Tholen – Quality Controller

Here is a man who knows all. When I started at Electro Cirkel 25 years ago, I had a 15-year background in electrical engineering as a service engineer. When I had been working in the warehouse for a few years, I was asked to assess the lamps in terms of performance, regulations and other important matters. When I was just starting on this, we didn’t yet have the kind of advanced equipment that we have now. A lot has changed since then. In my time here, I have seen the company grow into the Electro Cirkel you see today.

Marijn Marchand – Business Analyst

As a Demand Planner, I started up a forecast project in March 2016. After this project, there proved to be a major need to acquire more insight into the BIG data, and I continued in the role of Business Analyst. Over the past year and a half, we have been able to make really good analyses that provided insight into the business processes and enabled us to drastically improve efficiency on many fronts. This makes it so thrilling for me to work at Electro Cirkel. What could be finer than a successful result in which you were also able to let your own light shine? And, as P.S. Buck once said: “All things are possible until they are proved impossible and even the impossible may only be so, as of now.”

Natalie Martinez Vente – Financial Administration

I started working for Electro Cirkel B.V. (as it was then) in 1993 when I was 19 and had just finished my studies. I worked as a secretary for the four Directors at that time. I did that for over four years. In 2016, after a long absence, I was taken on again as a Customer Accounts clerk in the Financial Administration Department. This was a warm welcome after a long time. For me, Electro Cirkel literally brought light back into my life. The positive thing about Electro Cirkel is, above all, the humanity they demonstrate. They look not at belief, colour or age, but at who you are!
