Atte Forslund, production planner in Pietarsaari

During the summer months, we have many temporary holiday replacement members of staff working at our various sites. Meet Atte, who is working his third summer at BillerudKorsnäs Finland.

Hi! My name is Atte and I am 23 years old. I am studying Master of Science in Technology in Turku.

Why did you apply to work at BillerudKorsnäs?

This is my third year working at BillerudKorsnäs Finland in Pietarsaari. Previous years 2016 and 2017 I worked in shift work in slitter-winder. I enjoyed working here during previous years and it was clear to me that I would like to work here this summer as well.

Tell about your job at BillerudKorsnäs.

This summer I work as production planner in Pietarsaari. My tasks is to plan production for paper machine and slitter-winder. Production planning consist of handling and approval of orders, processing of test samples, planning when orders will be run and much more. Work has been very interesting and instructive all in all.

We appreciate new perspectives. During your time here, have you thought anything that we could do better?

I got very positive picture of BillerudKorsnäs right from first day and this picture has only strengthened during these years. The first thing that I paid attention to was investing in employee safety and comfort which are important things also to me. I am very happy that my workmates are so open, happy and funny. It is easy to work together. If I could hope for something, I would like that summer workers would see more production. I have also noticed that when you do same jobs whole summer, the overall picture may not be clear. Therefore it would be interesting for employees to try another job for a short period of time.
