"I am part of the Research & Development team and am responsible for material development together with other chemists. One of my main tasks is the creation and testing of new recipes for the upper or sponge rubber of the table tennis racket. In addition to the further development of existing systems, I also investigate the use of new materials and technologies. My job is sometimes very demanding and I recharge my batteries during the lunch break in our beautiful company grounds."
Mazhar, Production Worker
"I originally came from Syria and found a new home through ESN. I like to go to work every day, because the atmosphere in production with my colleagues is simply great."
Vanessa, Production Worker
"With my work in the final inspection, I make sure that only the best quality table tennis rubbers leave our premises.
It is important to work very precisely and to concentrate. I am happy to be a part of the ESN team and appreciate the fact that fresh fruit is freely available in the cafeteria."
Marcin, Test Player
"As a test player, I test our rubbers for playing properties and feeling. In order to be able to put myself into our customers' shoes, I have to master many different playing techniques. I then pass on the results from the test to our developers. I like that in our daily work we actively pay attention to compliance with our corporate values.
My job fills me with pride and I appreciate that I even receive a subsidy for the care of my children."
Ruth, the good soul
"I make sure that everyone feels comfortable at ESN. For me this starts with knowing everyone’s name and genuinely caring for their concerns. Sometimes I tidy up and make sure everything is order, sometimes I handle the incoming goods and distribute them with my forklift. Also very important is of course making sure everyone can grab a bite during their break, which I am happy to organize for my colleagues. I love this variety of tasks and making people smile and laugh. Because joy at work is crucial for a good atmosphere."

Simone, Process Engineer

What makes working at ESN special for me is that I can schedule and organize my work in a way that allows me to train at our gym in the afternoon."
