80% of my time is spent creating the future
"We run a state-of-the-art highly-automated facility equipped with robots and video quality control systems. I spend most of my time on continuous improvement, developing new processes and commissioning new machines. Our plant is constantly evolving. It is my job to make sure we have the resources we need to manufacture the volumes our customers need to the highest quality standards, at all times.
Design and manufacturing are closely related. Today’s processes are so complex that design and production engineers work hand in hand every day to invent tomorrow’s applications. I am proud to be a part of these major shifts."
