Inside Sales 

Full time - 40 hours a week

We are...

A fast-growing international manufacturer of windows, roof hatches, refrigerators, blackouts and insect screens for motorhomes and caravans. Horrex has existed for over 32 years and has a good market position in Europe, Asia, Oceania and North America. The markets in which we operate (campers, caravans, vans) are very dynamic and offer great prospects for the future. Given the current trend of holidaying in your own country, the number of people going camping will only increase. This offers enormous potential to serve a large group of new customers. The increasing popularity of conversions among young people is also creating a fresh new target group. We supply leading OEMs, converters, wholesalers and dealers in 26 countries worldwide.

Our head office has recently moved from Alblasserdam to Vlaardingen. We also have offices in the United States and China. Here we sell our products in collaboration with our agents. There are currently 19 people working in Vlaardingen who are responsible for Marketing & Sales, Purchasing, R&D and Supply Chain. In recent years, Horrex has focused on the constant development of new, high-quality products and product combinations, both for our current target groups but also for other markets. This has already resulted in various startups that fall under our Driving Change vision. For example, we also design compact electric bicycles and Slide Outs.

 

Our vision for the future is not only to further develop our current portfolio within Horrex and the startups, but also to produce new innovative products. For example, in recent years we have expanded our portfolio to include windows, skylights and even refrigerators. With this we want to profile ourselves as a total supplier.
