RPC Astrapak welcomes Marven Geza as Engineering Manager of the Westmead-based JJ Precision site. Marven was eager to explore a new opportunity in his career and found himself applying for this position. We believe his past experience will help him excel here at RPC Astrapak.

Starting his career in plastic packaging in 2012, Marven previously worked at Constantia Flexibles. Prior to that, he was an engineer in the food industry. Whilst familiar with working in flexibles, his work at JJ Precision will be within the moulding division. With RPC Astrapak as part of an international company, Marven sees great opportunities to work with us. He says: “I look forward to seeing how I can grow alongside this company as I believe that they are going places.”

Marven explained what the most challenging part of being an Engineering Manager is. He says: “Maintenance is a vital part to the company – maintaining plant reliability, ensuring efficiency of the equipment and keeping assets in top condition. Plant reliability is essential as the business will never achieve targets and we will not satisfy customers if we cannot remain reliable.”

Project work is equally important when overseeing new installations and new infrastructure. He mentioned that safety however, is possibly the greatest challenge that his role will face. “You represent the workforce in a way, where you are elected as a supervisor of machinery in terms of safety and guarding. Ensuring safety is a huge issue when people do not follow safety precautions and then it becomes the biggest challenge when someone is injured. Sharing awareness of safety precautions is the key for me, we cannot stress it enough!”

We are excited to have Marven join our team especially with such key values in reliability and safety. We believe he envelops RPC Astrapak’s values and we are certain he will achieve great heights in his department.

When he has time to relax, Marven enjoys spending time at the gym as well as watching sports, especially his favourite sport, soccer. He supports local football – Kaizer Chiefs – and Chelsea when watching the Premier Division.

Welcome to our team Marven, we know you’ll thrive with us.
