Marcin

Marcin

Vice President of the Management Board, Commercial Director
with the company since 1999

I’ve been with the company since the… nineties! I started as regional sales manager responsible for the Poznań region (International Paper) in 1999, and already then I knew that I would stay “for longer”. Five years later, it was time for change – I moved to Warsaw and took up the position of Business Development Manager under the company’s ownership by Kimberly Clark. This was an interesting challenge linked to searching for market niches and business development opportunities. My next step was the post of Customer Business Manager (CBM): new products, new customers, and new experiences.

With the onset of 2010, I was tasked with a new mission and became responsible for the entire traditional market in Poland. In 2013, when Velvet CARE was established, I became Sales Director and Member of the Management Board. Today, I’m responsible for the commercial side of Velvet CARE: sales, marketing, as well as the category development department in Poland and in export markets. Although I’ve spent half my life working for the company and I know it “inside out”, I feel like I’m always developing. In Velvet CARE, I meet not only great professionals but above all exceptional and authentic people, who have always been the greatest value of this company, and for me personally a real inspiration (and sometimes also a real challenge).

Adam

Production Process Engineer,
with the company since 2017

I had my first experience of working for Velvet CARE during my university studies in June 2015. As a student of Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering, I had a three-month internship at the Maintenance Department. On completion of the trainee programme, I focused on completing my studies. I didn’t think that I would be returning to the paper mill in Klucze, especially since I started working for an automotive company in 2016, but in 2017 I received a call that a new paper machine was scheduled for commissioning.

After successful recruitment, on 1 September 2017, I became a Velvet CARE employee. In just over two years, I worked as Beaterman, Paper Machine Attendant – Shift Supervisor, and Production Process Engineer. As a result, I have become comprehensively acquainted with the processes taking place in the Production Department. I am glad to have the opportunity to work for a company that guarantees professional development.

Katarzyna

HR and Payroll Manager,
with the company since 1977

I started working for the company on 7 September 1977 after graduating from the Complex of Vocational Schools w Klucze. I was not yet 17 years old! I began working at the Processing Department as an operator’s assistant. At the same time, I continued my education at the Secondary Technical School of Chemistry for Adults in Klucze. The plant was then known as Jarosław Dąbrowski Cellulose and Paper Mill in Klucze.

In later years, the names of the company changed and so did the places of my work. I worked in the Employment and Payroll Department and the Financial and Controlling Department. I joined the HR and Payroll Department in 2001, as Specialist, and in September 2006 I became HR and Payroll Manager. Working for the company gave me the opportunity to develop, meet amazing people and learn from the very best. During my employment at Velvet CARE, I graduated from technical secondary school, passed my secondary school final examinations, graduated from university, started a family and had three wonderful children. I am happy that at my place of work I can do what I enjoy most and to the best of my availability. And it’s already been 43 years

Sandra

Junior Marketing Specialist,
with the company since 2019

Three departments, located in Klucze and Warsaw, within a period of 1.5 years – this is the span of my career at Velvet CARE. But let’s start from the beginning. While still a student, I had the opportunity to complete an internship in the Quality Control Department, where I analysed the quality of raw materials, packaging and finished products. I also took part in in-house training programmes. Three years later, in March 2019, I took up employment in Velvet CARE.

I began working for the Private Label Department in Klucze. I was very surprised to see that the production plant in Klucze manufactures an enormous quantity of private labels, which can be found in practically every large shop. At the end of 2019, I decided to move to Warsaw and start working for the Marketing Department. My new job provides me with brand-new challenges and incredible enjoyment! Managing the cotton products and the company’s światvelvet.pl website are my key responsibilities. I know now that I’ve made a good decision by choosing this career path, and I will continue to develop in this direction.

Paper Machine Operator – Shift Supervisor,
with the company since 1975

In October, I will be celebrating my 45th anniversary of working at the paper mill in Klucze. I started with the post of Cutter. My job was to operate the guillotine machine used for cutting paper. I then progressed to other posts in the Production Department. I had a brief spell in the Processing Department, but for the last 30 years I have worked as Paper Machine Operator.

I have spent my entire working life in a four-shift system (one type of shift per year). I can’t tell you how many Sundays or Christmases I spent at the plant, but I’m not complaining. During this time, I’ve trained many new employees. I was also involved in the start-up of Machine 7. I am retiring next year, so I won’t be able to participate in the commissioning of Machine 8. Fortunately, the plant has many skilled people who can handle this task perfectly. And I’ll be able to focus on my hobbies when I retire, which include model building, riding on motorcycles and the World of Tanks game.
