Annelies Niewijk

R&D Researcher

Before joining Gouda Refractories, I did my graduation research at the company. As a result, I already had a good idea of the company and I knew it would suit me well. What particularly appealed to me was the relaxed atmosphere and the freedom you get for your own initiatives.

Piet van Rinsum

Chef Ovens

I applied for a position in the laboratory a long time ago. After about 12 years I moved on to the ovens department. It was, and still is, a great company with unique products.

Miki Lagers

Sales Manager

Over the years I have always worked in an international environment, dealing with markets and clients all over the world. When I was approached by a recruiter for Gouda Refractories, I thought, this is exactly what makes me happy: high quality products, niche market and a very international clientele.

Inge Muller-Van Vliet

Sales Support

I have been working at Gouda Refractories for almost 20 years now. I remember that the variety in the job attracted me, but also the no-nonsense mentality of the company.

Sales Coördinator


Denny van Kranenburg

Chemical Analyst

Before I worked as a Chemical Analyst for a large company, where my focus laid on massive and monotonous analyses. As a Chemical Analyst I am interested in the total picture of the how, what, and why. Gouda Refractories offered me the opportunity to be widely employable with a range of activities, measurement techniques and development opportunities in the refractory industry. Ever since I have enjoyed working at Gouda Refractories.
