Matthias Lohölter, Manager Maintenance and Technical Services at Coroplast

Matthias Lohölter is a toolmaker by trade who took over as head of Coroplast’s Maintenance department in 2017. A keen DIY enthusiast and football player, he also has an engineering degree in Production Technology as well as a diploma in Technical Management from the Chamber of Industry and Commerce. And if you ask him what his favourite hobby is, the answer comes like a shot: “Mending things!” – what else?

What form did your recruitment process take?

Totally conventional. I replied to a job advertisement online. I had my first interview about six weeks later and then a second interview together with my future boss a fortnight after that. Immediately afterwards, I was treated to a tour of the facility. I received a verbal assurance a week later and the contract was posted to me straight away.

What made you choose this particular job?

I get a feeling of satisfaction when a component that was defective works again, sometimes even better than it did before.

How would you describe your typical working day?

The only thing that’s typical is the scheduled start time for the round-table meetings in production. Apart from that, every day is unique.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

It’s never boring, and every challenge is new and somehow different from all the others. And it’s confronting those challenges that I find so exciting about my job.

Matthias Lohölter (Manager Maintenance and Technical Services)

What challenges does your job present?

When no-one is even aware that a fault or damage occurred, that’s when I’m most successful. I see myself as a service provider who supports production by ensuring that the effects of any future disruptions are cushioned before they have a chance to be felt.

How would you characterise your team?

There’s an excellent spirit of solidarity between us. We don’t need any team-building processes or seminars. And we know we can always get in touch with one another if ever a problem arises after hours.

Why is your employer right for you?

Any idea or any request that’s good and has benefits for our daily work, or that generally makes life easier for us, can be put into practice or fulfilled without delay. As long as everything runs smoothly, I’ve got a free hand. This creative freedom, in particular, results in a very good working atmosphere and environment for the whole department, and my subordinates, too, are satisfied and motivated. In short, it’s a modern, innovative company.
