Your job

IHC Mining leads, services and develops the global wet mining markets for Royal IHC for land-based and marine environments with innovative sustainable solutions for the total mining life cycle. With a small but dedicated organisation of approximately 20 full-time employees, we work with a number of other IHC units in order to provide the optimum solutions for customers. Most of the turnover generated by our activities is handled by other clusters of IHC.

  • maintaining market-related standard product information, such as brochures, product lists, website, and visiting exhibitions
  • supporting the development and maintenance of annual standard price lists, product specifications and cost calculations
  • acting as a point of contact and coordinating with IHC Robbins regarding its standard equipment
  • proactively supporting and developing the position of IHC Mining as a wet mining solutions provider
  • acting as an intermediary between IHC Mining and other sales-related stakeholders within IHC
