R&D allows me finally to be myself.
4 February 2013: my first steps in the company.
At that time, we were still located in DOSSENHEIM-SUR-ZINSEL and there were far fewer of us. I started by drawing the electrical schematics and very soon I had to take care of the supply and logistics of the material needed to wire the machines. From now on, each workload is equivalent to a person or a department. The change is radical and above all it allows you to be more reactive and efficient in your field.
Late 2014: Orientation towards automation and robotics
This soon led to me being on the customer’s premises, training staff in the operation and maintenance of our machines. Apart from the schematic, I was also in charge of programming. The machines had almost no secrets for me.
Early 2020: I’m offered another job …
Technical Analysis Manager. This position allows me to know the needs of the customers and to help guide the mechanical engineer who designs the machine with my experience as a former automation specialist. The objectives are to give a maximum of information to facilitate the electrical diagram and the programming. I also write the instructions for use that will be given to the customer.
Quite an evolution and I hope to evolve further.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE EVOLUTION OF R&D OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS?
Les débuts de R&D Technology se sont déroulés dans la maison de la grand-mère des dirigeants, pour arriver aujourd’hui dans un magnifique bâtiment de 4500 m². Elle est montée en puissance et je pense personnellement qu’elle n’est pas prête de s’arrêter. Elle grandit petit à petit. Beaucoup de choses ont évolué, surtout les deux dernières années.
