Adrian Schilling in the position of the new Operations Manager
Who are you and what are you responsible for at GEMÜ?
My name is Adrian Schilling and I have been the new Operations Manager at the Emmen location since 5 months.
What are your responsibilities as Operations Manager?
My tasks include ensuring smooth operation at the location. My team and I strive every day to meet all customer requirements across the entire supply chain in the best possible way.
How do you deal with the complexity of the market in which GEMÜ operates?
We at the site in Emmen are fortunate to be working in all four business units of GEMÜ. Due to the complexity of the market, there is a lot of work to do. However, it is pleasant that we are able to develop alongside our customers. Therefore, a flexible mindset is very important.
How do you deal with the tension between the delivery stocks and the raw materials converted?
The scarcity of raw materials and resources is indeed a major challenge. However, we are not alone. Our Customers and our suppliers face the same problem. Precisely our transparency to our customers usually leads to a solution.
What are other challenges you need to overcome as an Operations Manager?
As a fast-growing company, we are committed to find good workers. At the moment this is not an easy task. However, we are a well-known employer in our region. And as a family business, you still bring one or the other gimmick.
What was the decisive point that you chose GEMÜ as an Employee?
GEMÜ offers me the opportunity to work in a very exciting working environment. Here, I am able to contribute fully. You are taken seriously and have the possibility to help shape the issued vision.
It is also a family business. And even if it is now counting far over two thousand employees, the Müller family manages to maintain this family spirit. From the first second you feel that you are part of something special. In return, the employees are important to the company.
What is the most exciting thing about your daily work?
The exciting thing about my everyday work is above all the contact with all the different areas, to all the different people who work in the areas and ultimately the whole cultures that the people are representing.
In day-to-day work, that's the spice in it. The different cultures that you can get to know. The various people, with whom you can work together. And conversely, the various tasks that you are allowed to perform.
