Internship Supply Chain

‘Supply chain is more than just buying and assembling’

Pim is doing an internship at WES. He is student Technische Bedrijfskunde (Technical Business Studies) at Hogeschool Inholland Alkmaar. His study incorporates Physics and Mathematics in the business environment to create a bridge and be the intermediary between engineers and managers.

My research at WES is about the optimization of the supply-chain. I had no prior experience in the wind turbine industry but was eager to try something new as I have always been fascinated by clean, green and sustainable energy. As soon as I walked through the door everyone was very welcoming and made sure I felt at home. They taught me everything I needed to know for my research and so much more. The people behind WES are really passionate about the industry and make sure to involve you in their passion and knowledge. It is because of this involvement that I learn something new every day and it motivates me to go to work every morning!
