The specialty of DBP Plastic Solutions nv is the packaging of food, both in stores and in people's homes. They provide beautifully designed, safe and reliable products whereby innovation is a key focus.
DBP is a Belgian family business, located in Wilrijk (Antwerp), specialized since 1935 in the development, production and commercialization of a wide range of high quality plastic products with the aim of preserving, packaging and keeping food fresh.
Besides branded products they also offer custom made products such as private label for major retailers, FMCG food packaging and promotional items.
The product range has been developed in a balanced and careful manner over the years. It includes bread boxes, cookie boxes, fruit boxes, fresh food boxes, freezer boxes, kitchen equipment, and much more.
In view of the wide range of products produced, combined with a certain seasonality, DBP is looking to optimalize our supply chain and gain signifcant efficiencies. Therefore, we are looking for a SUPPLY CHAIN ENGINEER that will lead an important improvement project. Currently DBP experiences that within the whole supply chain there is still too much manual (i.e. paper) work, as well as inadequate use of the capabilities of the ERP, which leaves too much room for mistakes in their overall supply chain processes. Finally this leads to incorrect stock levels of both finished products and raw materials. It is deemed that specific investments might be needed in order to solve those issues, such as bar code scanning.
The Supply Chain Engineer will analyze the current operational performance in close collaboration will all actors involved (procurement, production, warehousing) and will propose and implement both short and medium term measures that will increase the overall efficiency.
