Renée Toussaint, engineer

What do you do at NewCold?

I am project engineer for NewCold. Stationed in the Breda Headquarters but with regular traveling to sites in the USA and Europe. In this role my main focus is on the technical side of developing and building new facilities. This includes support in business development, directing specialist contractors in the design phase and a supervisory role during construction.

What is your background in terms of education and work experience?

I have been educated in Industrial Design Engineering at Delft University of Technology. After my Master I worked as a product designer and as a mechanical drafter. In this last job I got introduced to the refrigeration industry, which eventually resulted in my current position with NewCold.

What do you like best about your job?

This job is very diverse and never boring. I like the involvement of different disciplines to create the best possible product for NewCold and their customers. The international projects create the opportunity to learn from different countries, methods and cultures.

What do you like most about working at NewCold?

NewCold is constantly moving and developing. Although the company is growing it still feels like a team with very short lines between colleagues.

How did you start at NewCold?

My first day working at NewCold, I thought to myself, wow – this is the future! I was so incredibly interested in how advanced NewCold’s operation was, and instinctively knew this is where I want to be, this is where I want a career. Initially I started working at NewCold via our labour hire company, working on a weekend project.

A few months into working casually, I was appointed as a FTE Team Leader in our picking operation. This gave me the opportunity to develop and build a high performing and engaged team whilst also given support and flexibility to enhance our way of working and productivity.

A short 8 months after my appointment as a Team Leader I was successful in my application for my current role, Operations Manager – Day Shift. What an incredible and supportive journey this continues to be!

What do you like best about your job?

In summary, I have the opportunity every day to drive results and positively impact our business, team and customer. With full support from all parties within our business, I am able to drive training and developing our team and myself, continuously improve on our way of working, enhance our productivity, achieve greater standards, inspire a highly focused safety culture and ensure compliance requirements are met,  all of which enables us to strive for  end to end process excellence.

    Team Shift Leader at NewCold Argentan


“I have been working with NewCold for about 4 years now, and I am responsible for the global IT landscape of NewCold. Me and my team make sure that everything is up and running 24/7 365 days a year, so that the people in the warehouses and offices all over the world can do their jobs as well as possible. Having colleagues all over the world makes it an interesting and, at times challenging, environment to work in. The main thing that makes working for NewCold great is being a part of a team who all have the same objective, getting the existing sites to run as efficient as possible, and getting the new warehouses built as efficiently as possible.”

“Complete robotization and demand of full operational availability of the warehouse 24/7, supervision of advanced security systems and critical parameters of operating installations, makes working in NewCold in the Maintenance and Infrastructure Department is very demanding and challenging. You need to be well organized, anticipate possible threats and be ready at the time to be able to respond quickly to them, at the same time combining work with people and machines – at work there are never two identical days. Contact with high-tech technology, decision-making and independence in management, leadershiping of a great technical team and modern machinery park, taking care of the efficiency of their use have always fascinated me and motivated me to act. Working at NewCold gives me all this, which is why I like this job.”


“I’ve been working at Newcold three years at picking department. From the beginning of this season I am promoted on shift leader position. I am glad that I have the opportunity to work among committed and young people. Our team is very integrated and we like working with each other, which helps us to be as effective as possible in our daily work. We also moved our picking team to the football field and we took part in local football matches under the patronage of Newcold.”


“When I joined NewCold about 4 years ago, the HR department was at an early stage. Over the years we have been developing and further professionalizing the department. I find it very satisfying to be working in a broad HR role with international elements, to help building the department and in this way, contribute to the organization. What I like most about working at NewCold is that our company is a very ambitious company with strong growth plans and dedicated people around the globe. I appreciate the informal culture, the “we-can-do-spirit” and find it very rewarding to be part of such a dynamic organization where no single day is the same.”


“I really enjoy working in Newcold as it is a great place to broaden my experience, learn new things and face new challenges. My colleagues are helpful and open so I can feel like a member of a big Newcold family.”


NewCold is my first worldwide company that I’m working for. When I’ve started my adventure with NewCold I was full of expectations of working in a young and dedicated team, increasing experience in logistics, to cooperate with experienced specialists from whom I can learn and have an open road to promotion. I’m satisfied as I’ve found all of that in Newcold. I’m Operation Planning Manager with great team of dedicated and motivated planners and fork lift drivers. All of us are focused of achieving one goal which is NewCold development by putting maximum effort to what we do and how we do it.”


“For me logistics is inseparable part of our existence, you can find it in every aspect of everyday life, at home, in the garden, being a father and husband. Logistics is my passion and that’s the reason why I’m in Newcold, Advanced Cold Logistics.”
