Jeroen den Boer

Project Manager

After completing my studies in civil engineering, I joined Gouda Vuurvast Services in 2012 in the work preparation department.
During my first few years here, I had the opportunity to gain and develop my knowledge of furnaces and refractories. I was also given the opportunity over the years to grow within the organisation and become a project manager. A job that never bores me!

I have been a planner at Gouda Vuurvast Services since 2018, and it is still a pleasure to work here every day. In our company, planning is different every day. This means that no two days are the same. There’s a great atmosphere in the office, which makes for great teamwork. “There is never a dull moment!”

In 2003, I started at Gouda Vuurvast as a trainee furnace builder, just “temporarily” helping out my father his regular colleague was off sick.
More than 20 years later, I still enjoy my job - now as Jr. Project Manager - and have been able to take advantage of various training courses along the way. No two days are the same and you get to go all over the place.
