Interview with Roland Weber - Head of Production and Process Engineering

What exactly is your job at Dentsply Sirona?    

I am in charge of production and process engineering in the area of dental instruments.In other words, beginning with parts production, such as machining, all the way to final assembly, I am responsible for guaranteeing that our products and processes are of the very best quality both today and in the future. We already work very closely with R&D during product development.

What is the importance of thoroughness in your day-to-day work?

A good example of thorough work at Dentsply Sirona is the day-to-day management. We meet up every morning to discuss in great detail what went well yesterday and what needs to be optimized. We determine face-to-face how to proceed and also assign responsibilities. Results should then be available by the following day at the latest. Short routes, direct communication and a team of experts from all fields make this possible.

I would never say that we are done. There is always room for improvement.

Roland Weber, Head of Production and Process Engineering

What defines the label "Made in Germany" for you?

The typical notion of Germany which used to be associated with this label no longer exists. Today, experts from all over the world come to us, including technicians as well as specialists and engineers. They all help to define who we are and offer their own unique strengths. For me, "Made in Germany" means that we apply values which have proven their worth over the years and with which we have achieved success. We embrace the new and combine it with our well-known strengths.

How does Dentsply Sirona benefit from "Made in Germany"?

In Bensheim in particular, we can look back on a long and successful tradition of engineering. From trainees through to long-serving staff, they all benefit from the experience, expertise and high standards which are tangible at this site. We can rest assured that the products we produce satisfy all the necessary requirements. Indeed, that they are perhaps even better than expected. The staff here give 100% every day to ensuring customer satisfaction.

When do you consider a working day to be successful?

When I have been able to invest a large part of my time in viewing and planning the production and processes of tomorrow. For a process engineer, it is all-important to be able to address prospective challenges. In a nutshell: A good working day is when I can take care of the future..
