What made you choose VPC as your employer?
At the end of my degree course I worked and researched in the field of process quality control (performance monitoring and predictive maintenance). This was already a really fascinating topic back then, and it still is now. Just look at all the different buzzwords like digitalization, big data and Industry 4.0. The head of the metrology division approached me when I was presenting the subject, and things took off from there.
What path have you taken through the company so far?
I started out as a test engineer in the metrology division and mainly concentrated on process quality control. I also took part in interesting tests and in various projects at home and abroad. India was undoubtedly the absolute highlight. Having learned the basics of process quality control, I sought to broaden the service portfolio and generate even more benefit for our clients. I was subsequently promoted to project manager for all calculations at VPC and took over the product management for plant performance enhancement. I then moved from metrology to the sales division so I could get involved in developing the sale of these products.
Can you tell us a bit about what you do and about your team?
VPC’s sales division is a small but powerful team dedicated to attracting and winning new customers for VPC and keeping existing customers up-to-date on our products. We deal with the entire process: A lot of our work involves drawing up tenders, but we also visit the client on-site to demonstrate VPC’s expertise live and in color. We naturally work closely with our specialist departments in this respect.
