PRODUCT MANAGER FOR BJELIN INNOVATION IN VIKEN!
you will join a company characterised by entrepreneurship where you can use both creativity and courage. For several years, Välinge and Bjelin have successfully developed new technologies in the flooring and furniture industry and commercialised these technologies. The business unit ”Bjelin Innovation” commercialises the technologies through in-house production in both Sweden and Croatia. Bjelin Innovation is expanding rapidly, with global sales of its own products, and therefore you are urgently required!
There are some clear guidelines in place, but the role, which is not yet fully defined, allows you to be involved in creating and setting the framework. When our new specialist team, which includes you, is in place, there will not only be Product Managers, but also specialists in design, technology, sales, certifications, and accessories.
Production for Hardened Wood is carried out in our own factories in both Viken and our brand-new factory in Croatia. In this role, you will also occasionally be on site in Southern Europé, but at most, a couple of days a month, or a little more during launches. In your role, you will have overall responsibility for the Hardened Wood product category, where some of your responsibilities within the product category will include:
Drive both long-term product strategy and short-term product development.
Create and update product roadmaps, product launch plans, and product specifications.
Define scope & specification for new products.
Ownership of certificates, technology, and product testing.
Responsibility for which products to phase in or phase out.
TO SUCCEED IN THE ROLE OF PRODUCT MANAGER…
You have a relevant post-secondary education, such as engineering or other education focused on technology and production.
You have experience as a Product Manager in similar areas such as wood-based products, e.g., flooring, panels, doors, or frames.
You are fluent in English and have good knowledge of Swedish.
Your personality is important to us!
To succeed in the role, you need an entrepreneurial spirit and the desire and ability to create! You are driven and take the initiative when we sometimes venture into the unknown. You are not afraid of rapid changes, but are flexible and solution-oriented with a desire to move forward. You have a good ability to collaborate with others as you have a large network of people around and about you. Furthermore, you have good communication skills so that others can understand you clearly. You have a good balance between analytical and operational work, and finally, you know that the team is stronger than the individual and work towards achieving new successes together!
VÄLINGE AND BJELIN DEVELOP AND MANUFACTURE…
a broad product portfolio of both traditional wooden floors and innovative floors made of new materials. Bjelin is part of the Pervanovo Invest AB group, and the development is done in collaboration with the sister company Välinge Innovation AB, best known as the inventor of the click floor.
The production takes place in Bjelin’s own state-of-the-art factories in Sweden and in northern Croatia, where they have access to high-quality FSC-certified timber and experienced employees who have been working for generations to refine the well-known Slavonian oak for everything from wine barrels, furniture, and now flooring.
The Pervanovo Group, which today employs over 2,500 people with production facilities in Viken (Sweden) and in Bjelovar, Ogulin, Otok, and Vinkovci (northern Croatia), will be expanding its production capacity in the coming years to meet the demand for primarily wider planks in tempered wood and click planks for glue-free installation of herringbone parquet.
The founders of Bjelin and Välinge invented the click floor in 1993 and developed the world’s first laminate floor in 1977 during their employment at Perstorp.
This role gives you the opportunity to be part of building Bjelin Innovation’s product offering and to be part of a rapidly growing company like the Välinge Bjelin Group. We have a strong growth plan with many interesting offers coming up!
