life at wattenspapier

portrait photo of Roland Steinlechner, Head of Quality Assurance & Laboratory at Papierfabrik Wattens

I have been working for wattenspapier since 1991. Born and raised in Wattens, I knew very soon that after school I would start my apprenticeship as laboratory technician with wattenspapier. After I had successfully finished my apprenticeship, I was able to work in all areas of the quality assurance department, established the smoke laboratory in 1997 and was able to constantly further develop myself ever since then. Eight years ago I was promoted to Head of Quality Assurance & Laboratory, and together with my great team it is a lot of fun and pleasure to master this challenge. Being part of wattenspapier’s team is a very special thing, and our cooperation as well as the perpetuation of our quality leadership is a goal we work on with heart and mind every day. Personally, it is very important to me that everyone knows each other well, respects them and places the "WE" before the "I", and I think that this is lived and implemented very well at wattenspapier.  

Roland Steinlechner Head of Quality Assurance & Laboratory

Wattenspapier does not only support personal development, but also career development. In addition to this, the pleasant working atmosphere also creates friendships beyond working life.
