Finishing operator with a keen eye for detail

“After a number of reorganizations and temporary contracts, I was offered a position at Verstraete IML eight years ago. My job? Cutting labels. That involves a combination of manual labor and technical brainwork, since the layout on the print sheets is crucial. The better the layout, the smaller the loss. I underwent on-the-job training, but my position has already evolved considerably. Technology does not stand still and physically demanding work has been automated. Not only that, but capacity has also increased. They really listen to you here - on every level.”
