ShowTex is a worldwide leader in inventing, manufacturing and installing innovative flame retardant fabrics, tracks and motion control systems for achieving the creative vision of theatre, event and entertainment professionals.
Imagine spending your working days in a company that breathes creativity. One that goes all out to bring to life the artistic ideas of event & entertainment professionals worldwide. A company that is part of an international group, but still feels like a family. Welcome to ShowTex Belgium!
Do you know those drapes that define a theatre? Or the scenic fabrics that create a mood on stage? That's exactly what we do. Event decoration, trade show displays, fabric reveal systems…? Yup, that too.
As a worldwide leader in inventing, producing and installing highly innovative, flame-retardant textiles and suspension systems, we gladly spend our days tackling the most creative challenges in set building, stage and stand design.
You can find ShowTex offices in Europe, the Middle East, South Africa, Asia and Australia, but your home base, which is our head office, is located in Burcht, near Antwerp (Belgium).
Technical skills? Check! You know how to plan the installation of a job from a to z and perfectly understand that everything starts with thorough preparation. Leadership skills? Double-check! You divide the tasks and direct your team while always monitoring the productivity, the quality and above all the safety.
Ran into a problem? Then you just look for a solution together. Positive vibes!
There is a bigger picture though: being responsible for the installation team means you can keep several balls in the air because organising is in your DNA. With your motto: “Let’s kick some ass”, you always get the job done in time, correctly and safely. When shall we meet?
TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE
Thanks to several years of experience in the entertainment industry, you understand better than anyone else how short our deadlines can be. You also know a good organisation and communication will get you a very long way.
Your team is loved in the whole wide world, so besides Dutch, you have a basic knowledge of French and English as well. Do you own a driving licence Class C? Extra points for you!
PERSONALITY AND SKILLS
You see solutions instead of problems. This positive attitude allows you to motivate your installation crew every single day. Clearly a true leader doesn’t fear responsibility, nor confrontations.
Your people skills keep the team working like a well-oiled machine at all times. The can-do mentality for the win. Want to blow us away completely? Tell us about your technical background!
ShowTex is not just an ordinary company. The word "impossible" does not exist around here, meaning we will always team up to find the best solution and just act on it. This mindset allowed us to stay at the top of a very specific industry for over 35 years already.
And what about you? You will be at the front line of this unique story, as the chief of our motivated installation team, making ShowTex the reference within the industry every single day.
