Innovation Project Manager

Saint-Gobain Cultilene is a reference in the international horticulture industry. We deliver our substrate products in more than 50 countries, but our scope goes beyond just substrate. We also develop glass to optimize the light quantity and quality in greenhouses. Diffuse glass, combined with Anti-reflective coating allows optimal light transmission and distribution across the production for the best crop quality.

Cultilene is a part of Saint-Gobain, an international company with 170.000 employees across 67 countries and a turnover of more than 40 billion euro. Innovation, durability and comfort are the bedrock of Saint-Gobain’s corporate strategy. Every year, more than 365 million euro are invested in research and development, where 3.000 collaborators are actively working on the next innovations.

As part of this group, Cultilene aims to deliver ever more solutions to the industry, next to substrate and glass, to support sustainable horticulture: Producing the best quality while reducing water and energy consumption to a minimum. To help us in this ambitious endeavor, we are looking to strengthen our innovation team with a fulltime Innovation Project Manager.
