Jasper De Jaeger - Unilin

Jasper De Jaeger has been working as Technical Services Manager of the flooring division of Unilin (Laminate, Parquet, Vinyl and accessories) since 2014. He's the perfect speaker to show how a traditional production company takes innovation to a whole new level. Jasper started his career at Unilin in 2008 as Production Manager in laminate flooring and moved in 2012 to Research & Development to design a new production plant for vinyl flooring. 

He is a big supporter of the corporate entrepreneurial Arena competition and the winner of the first edition in 2016. Jasper holds a Master’s degree in Engineering at the Ghent University and a post-Master’s degree in Industrial Management at the KU Leuven.

UNILIN is a world player in the flooring industry and is best known for its Quick-Step floors. The Unilin Arena is an internal accelerator program, where new products, services or processes can be developed. The idea of ReadyFit was the winner of the first edition. Jasper will share his experience on how the idea has been developed within the corporate structure of the company.
