The opening of the two new production plants was a crucial step in our development. Our long-term employee, Krzysztof Kotlarek, tells in a short conversation how it all went and what else we have planned.
Have you been part of the Magorex team for a long time?
Although I didn’t find my way to the new plant until January, my internship in the company has been nearly fifteen years. At the very beginning, of course, I was a regular worker. My promotion to a foreman came after six or seven years. I like my job; it is always challenging. There is something new going on all the time. There is no typical production here. Often new things come out, and there are also new challenges every day to avoid repetition.
Tell us about the work in the new Magorex production hall. What are you responsible for?
I am a foreman, I deal with the organization of work in the plant. First of all, I need to keep my team busy. That is why I am in constant contact with our headquarters at Pienińska Street. I declare when we can execute a given order, and I control everything we do.
When I first came here, the machines had already arrived from the Netherlands. Everything was ready to go, so I didn’t have to deal with the equipment. Our production is focused mainly on the flagship Magorex bakery and confectionery equipment, i.e. bread proofing peelboards pressed baking forms and sets of forms.
The change turned out to be a big challenge for you?
Before that, I had another foreman at my disposal, and there was also a manager. Here I am responsible for the coordination and organization myself. In the morning, I get general instructions, and I find out what is the plan for this day.
Is the plant completed? All the necessary machines are still in their places, or are you planning any more changes?
Since I’ve been here, a new laser has already appeared. We are also planning to move another welding robot, which is currently at our headquarters. We are focused on continuous development. We want to improve productivity and increase efficiency. That’s why I’m sure the machines will be here all the time.
