Marco van Asch

Employee in the spotlight

At Arcus, we strongly believe in the power of personal contact. This is the only way to build long-term relationships. We regularly share the story of one of our colleagues. This month we introduce you to Marco van Asch, warehouse employee.

Marco has been working at Arcus for 19 years. When he started, Arcus was a lot smaller. In the warehouse there were only 10 colleagues walking around. Now there are more than 40. But there is still a solid core working here and the family atmosphere has remained.

What does a workday look like for you?
“That varies from day to day. Currently, I work in the flanges and fittings department. In addition to the regular flow, I am also the contactperson for orders that are upgraded. These are high-risk products. Those orders need to be checked and/or tested before they are shipped.

I am also involved in internal training. I really enjoy that. I explain everything about the products and how the trucks and cranes work.

I am also responsible for the maintenance and inspection of forklifts, cranes, sweepers and various measuring devices. Everything has to be checked and certified annually. So I really do have a diverse job. Every day is different at Arcus.”

What do you really get a kick out of?
“I get a kick out of challenges. When I have to put out a fire. And of course this ends well for the customer. And we do a lot of orders that require extra handling. Real customization. An extra color or number. I also really like the fact that we do this.”

How do you see the future?
“Very positive. We have a lot of plans within the department. We want to train even more colleagues internally so that as many employees as possible can be deployed in multiple places. And we want to digitize more processes. And of course I am looking forward to our new building. We are really outgrowing our building now. And furthermore, I hope that despite the growth we will keep the family feeling, because I wouldn’t want to miss that.”
