Jason is our resident tech expert – a motivated, dedicated professional who’s years of experience is now helping Universal extend our servicing capability far beyond what we’ve previously been able to offer.
What brought you to the role at Universal Packaging?
After spending the last 20+ years in electrical and mechanical engineering and maintenance, I definitely have a passion for the industry. With this work I’m not only interested in the hands-on and technical stuff but also how maintenance management works – and the systems that need to be in place to make this succeed. This job (at Universal) was the perfect opportunity for me to put those systems in place and see it all grow.
What type of skills do you need for your work?
Basically, it’s lots industrial electrical knowledge, mechanical expertise and understanding the manufacturing processes and maintenance systems. The role also requires a high level of communication, a proactive approach and some good time management. A bit of diplomacy and a lot of confidence helps too.
