Every fortnight, we will be sharing #MeetOurPeople interviews, spotlighting the hard work of our Wipak family across our global sites. See what Matthias Werneck, Production Planning Solution Expert, had to say:
What do you do at Wipak?
I started with Wipak Walsrode in 2006 as a production planner. In 2012 I joined the Wipak's Process and Application Support - WARP project as a key user to support the SAP go-live in Walsrode. Since the end of 2013, I’ve been working in the WARP-Team as a Production Planning Solution Expert. In general, a SolEx is responsible for the SAP application and making sure that the defined processes are covered by the technical solution. Another priority of mine is continuously improving the SAP solution. For that, we’re in close contact with the business side to understand the needs and impacts regarding system changes. Since last year, I've also introduced and supported Wipak projects in Jira, managing business processes & specific projects.
What does sustainability at Wipak mean to you?
It's the future! As a father of two small children, you cannot think otherwise. Of course, as a business, we have to always keep an eye on profitability, but whoever has his foot in the door first will have an advantage over the competition.
What is your site like?
Since I work for the IT group, I have had the opportunity to get a taste of all sites. Each plant is unique in terms of culture and habits. I hope that we'll come to work even closer together and function as a big cross-border team. The success of the group counts on it and I hope everyone sees that. We have made great progress in this in recent years and WARP does the best to support this kind of fusion with the best possible ERP solution.
What is a surprising fact about you?
I’m an absolute music and movie freak! Unfortunately going to concerts and cinema hasn't been going that well during the pandemic…and the same goes for barbecues. Instead, I’ve had more time to work on my home, improving my handiwork and craftmanship by 100%...starting from 0%!
