Once the mixture is ready, you take a few samples for the R&D department. The next step in the process is to transfer the mixture into large vessels.

Employee review: Ralf - Production worker mixing department

"We have a nice team of people working on the production floor. Everyone has their own task, of course. But if someone needs a hand we’re all happy to fill in and help a colleague. There’s an open atmosphere in the company, which makes communication between departments quick and easy. I think that’s a pleasant experience."
