"What I like are the short lines, which allow us to adapt to demands from our customers. We can switch very quickly when necessary"

Work Planner Gert Burink

"I started here in 1988 as a mill machinist," said Gert Burink (..) "I still love this job. I like working with metal and technique." As a work planner Gert is responsible for planning various activities. A good coordination with the involved colleagues is essential. "Since we regularly take care of complete process for our customers, i.e. the entire chain of development, purchase, production and service, we hold multidisciplinary meetings several times a week. that includes the owner, the production manager, quality control and sales. In order to make it as clear as possible for everyone, all the steps of the project are sent out as soon as the project is confirmed. In this manner everybody knows at all times who worked on a product and in what phase of the process the product is in at the moment. We can provide the customer with the status of the project at any given time. This is greatly appreciated as it provides clarity.” Gert likes working at Hilmar. Why is that? "What I like are the short lines, which allow us to adapt to demands from our customers. We can switch very quickly when necessary.”
