We welcome Torbjörn Persson – Procurement Manager at Emballator Packaging InnovationsPosted 2023-05-12
What are your first impressions of Emballator?
“My first impressions are quite old; I have previously worked for many years with the procurement of plastic packaging, and it is probably 10 years since I got to know Emballator for the first time. I have always had the image of Emballator as well-run and skilled company, which turned out to be correct.
I feel very welcome and have had positive first impressions this first month.”
What is your primary role?
“I will work for the companies within Emballator Packaging Innovations and focus on finding even better solutions for plastic and recycled plastic for our companies. We must ensure that we are cost-effective and equipped from a sustainability perspective for the future. I will also support the local companies with procurement processes and various projects. Then I will also work closely with the units in Ulricehamn and Bradford, to develop a good purchasing methodology for the entire Emballator.”
Shortly, can you tell us about your background?
“I am an engineer and worked with sales in the transport industry after school. I changed tracks after 10 years and started at Orkla. There I worked in various roles with primarily procurement of rigid packaging with a focus on plastic. For the past two years, I have worked with procurement of logistic services at Sandvik SRP.”
How would you describe yourself?
“I think I am a fairly positive and curious person.”
Our values are important for us, which one or ones do you carry with you in your work?
“Personal commitment is important to me; it is important to feel a connection to and interest in the product. There must be pride in what one works with and contributes to. Then I think that the cornerstones of Community and Customer focus relate to the way I think, I am especially attracted by the fact that there is a clear connection between the company and society. It is very nice!”
Finally, what are you doing in your spare time?
“I spend a lot of time on a football pitches as I have been a coach for my oldest son’s team and now also for my younger son’s team. Otherwise, I enjoy being at home with my family, do some gardening and when travel when there is time for that!”Back to news
