Every fortnight, #MeetOurPeople spotlights our Wipak family across the world. This week’s special feature is from Michel Terwolbeck, Global Sales Director for Wiicare – the recently launched healthcare brand from Wipak and sister company Winpak.
What can you tell us about Wiicare and what do you do?
I am the Global Sales Director at Wiicare and am responsible for the MDI and HCF business. Particularly since powerhouses Winpak and Wipak have been bundled into the new Wiicare organization, we have been more confident than ever and proud to offer the world our healthcare packaging solutions, which guarantee a consistent and reliable supply of premium packaging material to the Medical Device Industry, Pharmaceutical market and Healthcare Facilities.
In addition to operating on all continents, we serve our customers locally through our regional account managers who are supported by a team of experts such as R&D, quality, and technical service, making us the ideal partner to provide the most suitable packaging solutions to the healthcare market. Our goal is to offer efficient packaging concepts that prioritize patient safety.
What are the benefits of Wiicare?
I am very excited that Wiicare is coming to life as a unified and agile organization – becoming the most sought-after healthcare packaging supplier. With a strategic network of manufacturing facilities, an innovation mindset, and global quality standards for medical and pharmaceutical products, I trust that Wiicare will be recognized as the global supplier of choice.
Plus, the combined expertise of Winpak and Wipak will take Wiicare to the next level. I look forward to further growth with our highly respected customers.
Could you tell us a bit about your site?
I am located in the Netherlands and living about 100km North of our Dutch production facility Wipak BV in Sittard. There, we have a dedicated converting unit for Health that produces a huge variety of our products. For example, sterilization paper and Dupont™ Tyvek® are printed and slitted, and a wide variety of MDI private label sterilization pouches and Windowbags (headerbags) are produced under classroom 8 conditions.
Tell us a bit about yourself!
I have loved being with Wipak for almost 30 years – prior to that, I was employed at a hospital distributor of Wipak Steriking® products. In my spare time, I like to play tennis, work in the garden or do renovations at home. I’m also an Alpine skiing fanatic in the winter, and during the summer I enjoy hiking in the mountains or camping near Lake Garda in Italy.
