How did you end up at WEISS?
I started at WEISS in 2005 training as a technical draughtsman. After completing my training, I started my mechanical engineering degree at the Dual College in Mosbach and graduated with a Bachelor's degree.
What is your area of responsibility?
My thesis dealt with the subject of “Systematic Design Investigations of Rotary Index Tables”. After studying, I was taken on as a development engineer at WEISS. I am already looking forward to gaining experience in design. My long term goal is to work as a project manager.
What inspires you about WEISS?
The individual support that you receive here is very inspiring. I owe much to WEISS, because I have always received the support that I needed. After completing my training, I realised very quickly that I wanted to go further with my studying. WEISS gave me this opportunity and greatly supported me with it. The company is very open when it comes to the advancement of its employees and further training opportunities.
How important is teamwork at WEISS?
Teamwork is very important, because our complex projects demand a good level of agreement and clear work assignments. For this you need a reliable team that also integrates younger employees well. My colleagues are very helpful and are happy to share their expertise with newcomers. In general, there is a lot of team spirit at WEISS, because we all get on very well and are ultimately more than just colleagues. You just have to attend one of our legendary company parties to realise that we really enjoy working here.
What do you look forward to when you go to work in the morning?
I look forward to my wide-ranging tasks. At WEISS, I can oversee products from the first stage through to delivery, or from planning to constructive completion. This is very important to me. I personally find this much more interesting than constantly designing exhaust pipes, for example. I like to oversee the creation and development of a product from start to finish. Because of this, I always look forward to seeing our products in the customer’s hands. Then I know that I have done a good job together with my colleagues.
