MAJOR SYNERGIES IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE CUSTOMER
Operations is primarily responsible for Duni’s conversion, distribution and warehouse facilities in Germany and Poland.
The conversion plants are where Duni’s paper-based products are produced. The paper itself comes from the subsidiary Rexcell paper mill in Sweden. Operations also handles IT and other systems support for Duni’s operations as a whole. Since being taken in under Duni’s ownership, the companies in Asia have been given help with planning, processes and other support via Operations.
MORE THAN A SUPPLY CHAIN
Duni’s strength lies in being vertically integrated, which means that important structures can be built for the exchange of experience and communication between company employees within all units and business areas. This increases competitiveness and makes it possible to refine the customer offering. In 2017, a global purchasing organization for raw materials was implemented, creating major synergies and clear customer benefit. Action was also taken to streamline and improve delivery precision, such as the new warehouse building that was recently put into use in Germany.
DIGITALIZATION AND INCREASED SERVICE LEVELS
Expansion of a central IT environment for Duni as a whole continued in 2017. A digital delivery chain leads to improved service levels and increased delivery capacity. Work is also underway to further digitize the production processes themselves.
“An individual who understands how we can communicate and work more efficiently together and is provided the tools to enable this, feels a greater motivation, satisfaction, and a greater sense of well-being.”
Fredrik Malmgren, Director Operations
GOODFOODMOOD, SHARED VIEW AND COOPERATION
It is not just Duni’s end users who should experience Goodfoodmood® during a meal. Work has begun to remodel the lunch restaurant and break room at the production facility in Poland. The idea is to create an atmosphere of enjoyment like you would find in any other restaurant – not only for the employees, but also for other visitors. The internal work with the Duni Cooperative Culture continues and has begun producing clear results; employees are provided tools to feel more enabled, and therefore feel a greater sense of motivation, satisfaction, and a greater sense of well-being.
