Redaktion: Thomas – to this day, you have worked continuously in TEKO’s production department ever since your apprenticeship, and even when undertaking further training. What role will you take on in the future?
Thomas: My job is to establish ongoing quality-assurance processes in collaboration with production management. This includes improving processes and workflows in manufacturing to eliminate production errors.
Redaktion: Why did you decide to continue working at TEKO in the future?
Thomas: TEKO is constantly evolving and the role I was presented with appealed to me. It is a very big project in which I can implement many ideas. What’s more, the working atmosphere at TEKO is really enjoyable.
Redaktion: What do you particularly like about TEKO and your new position?
Thomas: As part of my role, I can make many decisions myself and therefore have a high degree of independence. The cooperation with colleagues is very motivating since all employees’ teamwork and communication skills are excellent.
Redaktion: What are your plans for the future at TEKO?
