Plameco develops and produces high-quality tensioning ceilings. These are sold via franchise partners in the BeNeLux and Germany in particular. Plameco ceilings are in great demand in Germany and are still growing there.
Robert Oudshoorn (Director) says: “The German market is very important to us and an intensive cooperation with our franchise partners plays an important role in this. As a result, we have several Franchise Advisors in Germany who support the partners. In 2017, we suddenly had several personnel issues in Germany. Through a relationship, we were recommended WorkingED – (Inter)national Recruitment. Their contact Erik Dols fortunately speaks Dutch and German and they have an office in Ratingen (Germany). In addition, they offered more favourable rates compared to the other parties we had approached in Germany. After an initial introductory meeting with Erik Dols and Kim Houtvast we immediately had a good feeling. They knew what they were talking about and thought along with us”.
Erik Dols (Managing Consultant) says: “For me it is important that we can communicate openly and directly with a client. In our conversation I noticed that Robert was open to dialogue and that Plameco had grown strongly, but not yet. I myself have worked for several years as an HR Manager in German-Dutch companies and I enjoy being at the side of companies and sharing my knowledge and experience. We set to work and have filled several vacancies for Plameco in Germany and the Netherlands”.
Robert Oudshoorn adds: “The candidates that are presented mostly meet what we are looking for, that surprises me every time. We barely cared, WorkingED takes all the work out off our hands. All we have to do is have an interview and make the contract. I like the fact that Erik thinks along, gives his opinion and is critical, also with regard to the candidates. In short, I can recommend WorkingED to any company”.
