"Working for ADB SAFEGATE is challenging, demanding and dynamic: just the way I like it! It really drives you to accomplish your goals, and allows you to work with great people from all over the world.

I first came in contact with ADB SAFEGATE six years ago as a temporary worker. I remember being so impressed by the company’s great employee retention and how happy and dedicated everybody still was even after so many years with the company. Fast forward to today, I have now been an ADB SAFEGATE employee for five years. I have worked in the USA airfield ground lighting market, and I’m currently the Bilingual Contract Administrator for the Canadian AGL market. Having experienced both, I totally understand and share the fantastic attitude I first noticed. Indeed, both locations are a gold mine of highly knowledgeable and generous coworkers always ready to pass on their know-how and passion for our products and customers. You really can’t help but learn, be inspired, grow, and in turn, help the next new ADB SAFEGATE colleague.

“Working for ADB SAFEGATE is very much like working in a big, warm and caring family. While the workload is always heavy, the constant support and guidance from my superiors and colleagues, has nurtured a huge passion for my work at ADB SAFEGATE. This has become the key motivation for me to move forward, with extra miles. Team work and team spirit is what I cherish the most in all my 12 years with ADB SAFEGATE. Everyone from local office, Malaysia or head office in Zaventem, is always working together to obtain the best results. Superiors and colleagues are very helpful and always stand in support as a team player. There’s no limit to the help and understanding from all of my colleagues. Everyone does their best to assist each other to complete the task with the same aim even though we are working from different parts of the world and/or time zones."

“It is very nice to work in an environment with colleagues from a diverse mix of countries and cultures. Multinational environments typically give you a broader experience working with people from different racial and ethnic backgrounds. It is a great place to work as it is a diverse organization with talented and collaborative people. If you're looking for a challenging role and positive international working environment, ADB SAFEGATE is the right place. There is always an open opportunity to further your education or to change career paths. Working for ADB SAFEGATE has influenced my own career development. I have been encouraged to develop the skills and access the support I need to take on a number of challenging roles and projects. I am given the autonomy that I need to develop and I always feel my opinions are valued. Another best part about working for ADB SAFEGATE is its people and the values-based culture. Quality work, multinational environment and learning opportunities are the reasons why it is great to work for such company.”

Valerie Van Laethem, Sales Operations Manager Zaventem, Belgium

All of this pushes us forward and allows us to develop ourselves to the best of our abilities. Getting up in the morning, every day, knowing with certainty that something interesting is going to happen. Travelling all over the world, landing at airports that use our products and systems, feeling at home everywhere, having fun, meeting with customers, partners and colleagues who love our products and our company…Fighting and winning.”
