APPM supports local organisations

posted in: Paper | 0

The COVID-19 pandemic still has a great impact in our lives. The USA, Brazil, India and the Russian Federation are currently reporting the highest number of cases. Many people, organisations and companies are supporting as much as they can – like one of our largest suppliers. Arkhangelsk Pulp & Paper Mill JSC (APPM) is intensively supporting the community in Arkhangelsk and at the production location Novodvinsk in North Russia.

APPM supports local organisations by providing a large amount of masks and paper tissues. Municipal hospitals were supplied with masks in FFP3 standard and tissues, too, as well as thermometer and disinfectant to name a few examples. In addition, APPM donated a large sum of money.

Total makeover – a new look for our office

posted in: General | 0

Finally, we can happily say: rebuilding the office while remaining at service demanded a lot from everyone, but the result was worth the effort.

After a planning period of two years and a rebuilding period of 12 months, divided into three phases, we were finally able to move into the last offices.  The complete redesign was a result of the previous total office gutting.

Extreme Makeover

We did not only increase our office area enormously. Modern interiors such as partitions, which offer opportunities for retreat and concentrated work, as well as glass elements, which provide light and transparency, are a significant component of the optical change. The offices are now equipped with new lighting technology and elements for optimized room acoustics. Height-adjustable desks also offer perfect comfort for individual working. All this enables our employees to achieve nearly ideal and modern working conditions.

Coping with challenges during Corona

posted in: General | 0

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a big impact on the world. Our work is also influenced in different ways. For the safety of all colleagues, business partners and customers, we of course adhere to the regulations of the government and the guidelines of the authorities.

The biggest challenge was the technical implementation so that employees can work from home. Luckily, our IT structure is technologically advanced enough to meet the requirements and additional notebooks were purchased in due time. Meanwhile, working from home has become an important part of our working environment. Calls are automatically forwarded to the colleagues at home. Since some work processes and tasks can be managed only from the office and not all employees work from home, we are on site, even if only in a small number.

posted in: Wood | 0

Sustainability has been a significant topic also before Greta Thunberg and FridaysForFuture. However, these days it becomes more important than it ever was. On top of that, the importance of transparency of supply chains including the traceability of timber origins has increased also because of the EU Timber Regulation. At Jacob Juergensen Wood, we concern ourselves with these topics for many years already. With albasia we have found a wood species that has many outstanding characteristics fulfilling our high requirements on the above mentioned issues.

In February began for Henning Reck his first trip to the forests of Finland. After he had completed his studies in the wood science a few months earlier and started working for Jacob Jürgensen, it was time for him to prove his skills in practice.

Henning Reck, February 2020

Despite hurricane Sabine the Finnish airline was the only to brave the flight from Hamburg to Helsinki. Johanna Kaitaranta, a native Finn and team leader of Team Nordic, had organised a typical Finnish forest cottage for my stay. As a city slicker, I was able to enjoy the wide open spaces and solitude of the Finnish forests and, in addition to my work, I could also experience a touch of Finnish flair.

A report by our trainee Anna Richter

On Monday, November 11, 2019 we drove to the factory for corrugated cardboard Lünewell in Lüneburg.

As we arrived the purchasing manager Mr. Langhoff gave us a friendly welcome and started our tour with some background informations. The affiliated company Cartoflex has been processing corrugated cardboard into packing cartons for 35 years, since 2012 the newly founded company Lünewell is now producing corrugated cardboard itself.

After a short walk across the terrain, we enter the main building and are soon located in a huge hall, where you already recognize by the smell that paper is processed here.  Mr. Langhoff leads us further into the hall so that we are able to see the warehouse better.
