Internal Leadership

In an effort to continuously improve performance and business practices, each year Kruger management organizes internal Centres of Excellence on key Company priorities:

  • Reliability of all facilities, equipment and manufacturing processes (engineering)

These Centres of Excellence are a way of gaining insights from Company personnel so that we can make Kruger a healthier, safer place to work, reduce our environmental footprint and ensure the optimal reliability of our equipment and facilities.

In 2017, for the 9th Annual Occupational Health and Safety Centre of Excellence sixty professionals from across the Company focused on best health and safety practices. Chantal Petitclerc, former Canadian wheelchair racer participated in the Centre of Excellence as speaker and motivator.
