The Austrian Broadcasting Corporation (ORF) portrayed “The future makers” at Fresenius Kabi Austria
July 25, 2022
What is produced in Graz and Werndorf? How does the working day look like? What does Fresenius Kabi Austria stand for? These questions and many more were the subject of the ORF film shoot for a new episode of the TV series, "Die Zukunftsmacher - Menschen in der Industrie," (The future makers - people in the industry) to present Styrian companies and provide insights into their craft.
Our plant manager Ruth Staubmann and two employees, Jenny Mitteregger, laboratory technician, and Helmut Pelzmann, lean manager, answered the questions and shared their views on what working at Fresenius Kabi Austria means to them personally. The film shoot took place right on the spot: in production and in the laboratory in Graz, as well as in the packaging and logistics center in Werndorf, 15 minutes away.
“It was a unique and exciting experience for us to be part of this film production showing the audience which contribution we make every day for our patients by manufacturing essential medical products to help them get well again or to improve their quality of life. It's a wonderful and fulfilling feeling," says plant manager Ruth Staubmann.
