Brighter Together

Bij KRONOS maken we werk van een “bright” toekomst. Zo investeren we jaarlijks in de nieuwste technologie met het oog op duurzaam ondernemen.
Ben jij een geboren people manager met technische bril en focus op energie?
Dan kan je misschien wel bij ons wel floreren als Energy & Utilities Engineer!

About the job

Our production section consists of three parts: Pretreatment (CP process), Finishing and Utilities. You will be responsible for the third part and will report to the Head of Production.
You will be responsible for the utilities within our factory, but it is also your task to make our production process as sustainable and energy-efficient as possible.

Together with your team (+/- 20 colleagues), you will ensure the operation, maintenance, and continuous improvement of essential production facilities such as water, air, electricity, steam, etc. You will also manage wastewater and operate the sanitary facilities.

By 2050, KRONOS must achieve energy-neutral production, and to meet that goal, there are still many energy projects in the pipeline! Think of installing solar panels, converting exhaust gases into useful molecules, laying a heat network, etc. You will lead all these projects smoothly. You can count on the support of your colleagues in the energy team.

About you

Of course, we would love to meet you in person to see if there is a match between you and KRONOS Europe. However, our ideal candidate will already recognize themselves in the following profile:

  • You have a master's degree and experience in a production environment, but most importantly, you have a strong desire to help us produce the best titanium dioxide!
  • By thinking conceptually and keeping an overview, you quickly gain insight into the various techniques and our production process. Experience on a Seveso site is a plus.
  • As an inspiring people manager, you know how to create support on the production floor. You also have (initial) experience as a leader.
  • You are driven, have a positive attitude, and are passionate about energy. You also succeed in conveying your enthusiasm to your colleagues.
  • You don't mind getting your hands “white” and continuously look for improvements and optimizations in the current operations and processing.
  • You are an effective communicator, both in Dutch and English.


KRONOS Europe is a well-established company in the Ghent Canal Zone. We are one of the six production sites of KRONOS Worldwide INC. Thanks to the global commitment of our 2,250 colleagues (300 of whom are here in Ghent), we have grown into a world leader in the chemical sector.
We offer you a versatile job that challenges you both technically and in terms of people management. You will work in a state-of-the-art production site with the latest technologies. You will have the space to take on responsibility in exchange for the necessary flexibility to ensure a good work-life balance. Of course, we offer you a competitive salary package with attractive benefits. It is also possible to exchange part of your gross salary to lease a bicycle or electric car.
