UBQ Materials to hire 140 manufacturing professionals in Brabant region for operation of large-scale production facility

Tel Aviv -- March 23, 2023 -- UBQ Materials, climate tech developer of advanced materials made from waste, announced today that it will triple its workforce in anticipation of opening its first large-scale facility in Bergen op Zoom in the Netherlands.

UBQ Materials is recruiting 140 full-time employees, 80 of whom will serve in operator roles at the company's new state-of-the-art lab and material production facility, which will become operational in 2023. Aligning with the UBQ Materials Triple Impact Plan on the region's waste, business, and material ecosystems, UBQ's attractive long-term contracts offer both growth and stability across blue- and white-collar careers in the burgeoning greentech industry.

"West Brabant wants to be a leader in the transition to the new economy. When it comes to the raw materials transition, UBQ is a prime example of a leader driving this transition, making the company a circular asset for Bergen op Zoom," said Dominique Hopmans, Alderman of Economic Affairs in Bergen op Zoom.

The UBQ Materials facility is located in the Brabant region, considered "the plastic belt" of the Netherlands. The facility will have an annual production capacity of 80,000 tons of UBQ™, diverting 104,600 metric tons of annual waste. With the support of the municipality, UBQ's industrial-scale facility and research & development lab will help transform the region into a clean tech hub.

"The manufacturing industry has an opportunity to positively impact the world by transitioning to a new standard of sustainable materials and becoming a driving force for the circular economy," said Jack ‘Tato' Bigio, Co-CEO and Co-founder of UBQ Materials. "The Brabant region is well known for being at the forefront of innovation. We are inviting professionals to bring their knowledge and experience to UBQ and be part of the sustainable future of manufacturing."

UBQ Materials works with global leaders across industries, including Mercedes Benz, PepsiCo, Anheuser Busch and McDonalds, providing its climate-positive material in place of conventional plastic to reduce the carbon footprint of supply chains and support the transition to a circular economy.
