After studying mechanical engineering I began my career as an engineer in process services. I joined Cumapol in 2017 as a Production Coordinator and promoted to Plant Manager.
As Plant Manager I am the eyes and ears of the plant and it is my responsibility that all work is done according to the highest quality and safety standards in place. I love to keep pushing the technical boundaries, it is truly a satisfying feeling to achieve the most optimal production in the factory.
Our personnel is our strength, the ability and willingness to work together as a team makes our plant successful. I am proud of my experienced and dedicated colleagues who are motivated to see our company flourish. It is great to see that our most experienced operational and technical staff is eager to share their knowledge and expertise with the new talented generation.
Today, I oversee a team of hardworking people who are responsible for the production of 25.000 tons of high quality polyester specialties and for the recycling of 1 million PET bottles a day into valuable, food contact approved polyester grades (rPET). In 2019 we will increase our recycling capacity to 2 million PET bottles a day and more opportunities for expansion are being evaluated.
