Head of logistics and administration

“Three years ago I started in Puidukoda OÜ as a planer. At the beginning, I had to play the role of a shift manager and occasionally the replacement of production master. Thanks to a favourable working environment and supportive management team, I quickly developed into a production master.

If You have the desire and will, then here You can realise Yourself and develop within the organization.”
