With FIBRO since February 2017
What I do
Manufacturing of metal components such as punches and stamping tools for presses.
I have always had a personal interest in engineering and craftsmanship. For example, I always used to help out with the roofing or concrete work. As a result, working in an office was the last thing I wanted. That’s why I was always looking for a job like the one I have now. So I completed an internship during school, which confirmed to me that I definitely wanted to learn a trade, as I would find it much more fun than working in an office. Then I completed my training as a machining engineer at LÄPPLE, after which I was hired by FIBRO.
It’s a job that requires a lot of tinkering around and involves a lot of thought. I love this, as it means things never get boring.
I like my job because it isn’t mundane like a lot of others. I could also see myself working as an industrial mechanic, since that involves using a lot of tools. But what I really like in my job is having to keep a close eye on precision.
At FIBRO, we work very hard to ensure precision. For example, in my field we have to ensure accuracy down to one thousandth of a millimetre, so very precise indeed!
To give you one example, the products I’m working on at the moment are punches, which are used in the press to punch holes. So these are stamping tools.
I would like to progress further in my current career. I’d also like to learn about some other machines so I can rotate to other areas of the business. Perhaps later I’ll do some additional training, but I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet.
I would like to stay here because I like the professional environment, the work itself, the company and the people who work here, and because I’m quite sure of what I want to do with my life.
It’s amazing! I love my colleagues and I think it’s really great.
What I like about the LÄPPLE Group is that the whole environment is just right, the people are good to each other, and the work is really varied.
I think we all work together fine. My male colleagues are very accepting and we get along really well.
I think having something similar to the Girls’ Day would be useful, because it’s an event where I can explain to other women what I do in my job, some of whom will be interested and sign up with us themselves.
