Production supervisor at Injection Moulding Rubber
Walter has always been big on diversity and equality. He moved from spirals to IMR, where there were no females on the team. He was part of the supervisory team that trained 2 female learners in the Polymer Compound learnership.
When the department needed more personnel, the supervisory team decided that the 2 female learners, as well as an additional 3 women, would be employed.
In 2018, Walter participated in a Manufacturing and Assembly Operations Supervision L4 learnership. He says, “I now understand the role of junior management, thanks to Multotec and my mentor, Francois du Preez.”
“We are grateful to work for a company that gives us opportunities to learn through learnerships and skills programmes. To all employees, I say – take this learning opportunity. In the past, we only used to have men operating machines and we now have 5 women. This is due to the skills development programme,” says Walter.
Well done, Walter. Multotec is proud of you!
