We happen to like companies and corporations that are not anonymous and welcome personal communication and responsibility. We believe that You as a customer should know the people behind the products and services You use. This is why we are more than happy to introduce You our core team and the founders of Petkafy.com.
Founder, Executive Manager and Consultant
Tauno graduated Tartu University in Economics in 2001 and has been involved in manufacturing companies ever since.
He has more than 15 years of experience in developing and implementing management systems that fulfill and exceed the requirements of international (automotive) management system standards and customer requirements including developing of operational software to run and support the management systems. Tauno has maintained and improved existing systems in manufacturing companies for increased efficiency and quality, but also developed and implemented completely new management systems from scratch to fulfill the ever growing requirements of leading electronics and automotive OEM-s and to keep up with the toughest competition.
Tauno’s last job before turning his full focus on Petkafy involved daily quality management, development and implementation of the companie’s management system according to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO/TS 16949 standards, but also management of projects department in Promens AS (today one of the world’s leading plastics converters). The first lines of software code were written by Tauno while working for Promens to achieve the tough automotive operational quality management targets, but he just couldn’t stop there once he saw how efficient things can become if You do it right.
Petkafy can be called a by-product of Tauno’s close co-operation with Janar Eit, another founder, who was in charge of production and business development in Promens at the same time and who can be called the father of Petkafy, because he wrote the first ever module for production reporting in all shifts.
Founder, Business Development Manager and Consultant
Janar has graduated Tallinn University of Applied Sciences and is studying further aside his daily job to achieve MBA at Tartu University.
He has over 15 years of experience in developing business processes and is a certified Lean manufacturing, Kaizen improvement tools and Visual management trainer.
Janar started his career as a line operator in a manufacturing company and moved along to process, production and business development. This has given him extremely deep knowledge in all levels of processes taking place in any normal manufacturing company. He has performed over 90 different trainings and practiced development of mid-level managers and management team members by coaching for years. In the last few years Janar has been focusing on leading cultural changes in Promens AS to turn it Lean throughout the organization.
Thanks to Janar Petkafy is as simple and as close to the real manufacturing world as it can be.
