Stock and Purchasing Controller

Duration of Employment:  Permanent

Location:  Silverstone based with travel to other group sites and suppliers.

Reporting to:  Technical Manager

Company Overview:

We believe that it will become more and more unacceptable to waste energy.

Unfortunately, vehicles & machines in dynamic duty cycles often waste energy. Their powertrains have to be designed for the short-term peak power requirements despite the average loads being typically significantly lower.

As a result, PUNCH Flybrid is producing energy storage systems that deal with the peaks in load, so that the main powertrain can be optimised around the average load.

This results in significant energy & emission savings.

PUNCH Flybrid is based at the Silverstone Circuit and is part of the PUNCH-Group, a family owned Tier 1 manufacturer and integrator of full driveline solutions.

At PUNCH Flybrid we are working on exciting and innovative projects that typically include truly novel engineering content. This creates many opportunities for our staff to stamp their mark on the final product and to develop their skill set.

As part of these projects, we work with small as well as very large organisations, offering a dynamic and interesting work environment.

This role is based at our modern factory in Silverstone, Northamptonshire, UK, but may require travel both within the UK as well as internationally.
