Do you have at least 2 years of project management experience in a mass production environment and are you ready for a new challenge at an international organization? Then we have a great opportunity for you!


The Production Engineering department designs, configures and modifies existing and new production resources and assembly (lines) for the production of turbochargers. Product and process development vary from further development to complete innovations. Existing production methods are continuously improved and optimized. The activities within Production Engineering are divided into teams: mechanical design, process engineering, project engineering and industrial automation. Around 40 FTEs work in the department.

Mitsubishi Turbocharger and Engine Europe (MTEE) is a global player in the field of turbochargers for the automotive industry. Did you know that we have a 20% market share in Europe? That means that 1 out of 5 cars in Europe are fitted with a turbo that was made in Almere. For automotive to be able to contribute to global climate objectives, downsizing (a smaller engine with greater power, possibly hybrid) is necessary. Using a turbocharger is the best way to make this technically possible.

As our parent company is located in Japan, we work in close collaboration with a culture known for its hospitality. And this shows in everything. From our production line in Almere, we deliver directly to our OEMs all over the world. All of our 800 employees make this possible. Proud and dedicated, that’s what we are!
