About Trifilon

Plastic has become a dirty word. But if you know anything about materials (which we guess you do as you read this advert) you understand the amazing things plastics do for society.

In the fast pace of product development and innovation, manufacturers need tested, high-quality materials that will perform in their applications while achieving immediate, concrete, and measurable sustainability goals.

This is where Trifilon comes in – they aim to create the next generations of high-performance composites based on natural fibres – and that is why they need you! They are expanding with a material testing lab, that will be fully operational including chemical analysis and SEM by summer 2022. Parts of the equipment for mechanical tests and thermal analyses are already available together with a complete material prototype manufacturing environment.




Have you ever dreamt of testing different material combinations that will create a more sustainable tomorrow? Perfect – that is what this job is all about! You will put together different material recipes, create material samples and evaluate different material combinations’ qualities.

Trifilon offers you a creative lab environment, the possibility to work with the most modern biocomposite material from raw material to finalized product and to be part of the growth of a company that wants to create change now!
