Petra Löfgren, Shift Manager

In 1999 it was pure chance that she ended up at Octapharma. Today, Petra Löfgren has worked in the company for 20 years.

In 1999, Petra received a tip from her aunt that a pharmaceutical company (which three years later would be acquired by Octapharma) was searching for staff. By then, the 24-year-old had already worked in a kiosk, a grocery store and a preschool. Today, she’s worked in the company for 20 years and is now a Shift Manager in the Large Volume Parenterals (LVP) area. She is responsible for one of five teams that operate 24-hour shifts at the factory, all year round. In her spare time, Petra likes to take it easy and spend time with her cousin, who she has known all her life, as well as with her goddaughter and her goddaughter's sister.
