Thomas Schöffel – Quality assurance

16. December 2020 | All articles, TEKO Team /

Thomas Schöffel started his training as a mechatronics technician for refrigeration technology at TEKO in 2012 and subsequently completed his further training as a state-certified technician in June 2020, specialising in refrigeration and air conditioning system technology. He has been back at TEKO since August 2020 and working in close cooperation with production management, he will establish a continuous quality assurance system at TEKO in future. 

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?

Thomas: My main goal is to build automated processes in manufacturing. A high number of automated processes should eliminate as many sources of error as possible, which results in a well-functioning quality assurance.

Redaktion: Thomas, thank you for talking to us. We are pleased to have you on board for this important task and wish you much success and joy when carrying it out.
