How did you come to Rotho?

I came to Rotho in 2005 as an apprentice plastics technologist. At the time, I didn't really know what I wanted to be. My father then saw the job advertisement and encouraged me to apply. During the one-week trial apprenticeship, I was accepted by a very open team and got to know an interesting job.

What do you like most about your work?

The work with the teams in production or the production-related teams, the modern machines and the large variety of materials. The introduction of new tools is very interesting and technically demanding work. It never gets boring.

What is your biggest highlight?

My degree as an industrial foreman in the field of plastics and rubber.

My supervisor motivated me to complete this extra-occupational training, and I was also able to reduce my working hours. Today, in my role as process engineering team leader, I can put a lot of what I have learned into practice.

What is your favorite Rotho product and why?

Our PASO waste bin, a practical product that is very exciting from a production point of view.

Setting up the machine is interesting and it is produced using a combination of several techniques.

Rotho and flexibility - do they go together?

Although we manufacture simple products and have to meet delivery dates and quality requirements, we always aim to constantly improve our processes and produce more sustainably.

We have to be extremely adaptable, especially when it comes to sustainable products. The recycled raw material, for example our own scrap that is reused, is always different in composition and must be processed accordingly.
