My main tasks include managing production, maintenance and procurement teams; overseeing production output and availability of product for customers’ orders; organizing production schedule and purchases of all raw materials.


My main challenge would be the short time available for process troubleshooting.

My site managers who i met during first years of my career were the biggest influence on my career now.

Work/Life Balance
