HSSE Coordinator (Tanger)

WILLEMEN GROEP is today Belgium's largest family-owned construction group. The Group's expansion has gathered momentum in the fourth generation of family ownership, with, among others, the acquisition of contractors Franki (1998), Cosimco (2005), Groep De Waal (2005), road builders Aswebo (2011), Aannemingen Van Wellen (2014) and Kumpen (2018). In 2013 Willemen Groep received the prestigious "Entrepreneur of the Year" award for its dynamism and entrepreneurial spirit. This prize is a real incentive for all employees to continue grow the company, and serves to showcase the Group's values and ambitions. We offer our customers a highly complementary range of building activities, from civil engineering and industrial construction to residential and non-residential projects to road building, either alone or in consortia. Such synergies not only open up many more opportunities to us but also strengthen the bond between our companies and our image.

One year ago the Dutch company APM Terminals has awarded the construction of a new container terminal for APM Terminals Tangier MedPort to a conglomeration of four companies of the Willemen Groep. The companies being Aswebo, Aannemingen Van Wellen, Franki Construct and Cosimco. The terminal will be built on a site of 53 hectares and will have a quay length of 1.200 meters. It will be the first automated container terminal in Africa.
