My career at VULKAN
I joined VULKAN in 2016 as a work planner. In this role, I planned the machines in Mechanical Manufacturing. The focus of my work was therefore on the following questions: On which machine can what be manufactured in which machining time? In the years that followed, I worked on various projects. The time re-economy project was about time recording in mechanical production, vulcanization and assembly. Another project focused on competitiveness. Among other things, this involved investigating how expensive a component is in in-house production. I was also involved in the implementation of new Mazak machines. In addition to my work in project groups, I have continuously furthered my education: For example, I did my REFA training to learn how to analyze, plan and optimize complex operational work processes and took part in a lean camp.
This is what I am doing at VULKAN right now
Since 2019, I have been in charge of Mechanical Production with 80 employees. This area also includes toolmaking and industrial training. My current job involves organizing the entire Mechanical Production department so that deadlines are met and quality remains at a high level. I also deal with many strategic issues in order to optimize processes and ensure competitive and future-proof operations.
That's why I like working at VULKAN
In my everyday working life at VULKAN, no two days are the same. If, for example, a machine breaks down, I have to react at short notice. This is what makes the work so exciting. It is also fun to work with different people and to see how employees develop. After all, personnel development is very important at VULKAN and you get the opportunity to continue your education. I always enjoy coming to work because I can deal with strategic issues and new technologies. I think it's great that I can accompany the development process of VULKAN and have already been involved in the introduction of some innovations. If you can also see progress and achieve success, the work is twice as much fun.
