Senior Section Manager Manufacturing Engineering. of GF
“I got to know the location of AMD/GF in great depth even way before I worked here.
After my engineering degree, I started working in 2004 with a supplier of what was Factory 36 at the time. I was involved in the installation and supervision of the wafer conveyor system at the Dresden factory. After that, my employer at the time sent me to the USA for two years to establish conveyor systems in other factories there.
I wanted to see even more of the world and changed over to the solar industry. As a trainer for PECVD systems, I trained customers around the world.
After six years of travel, I wanted to work in my hometown Dresden again. For me, as a “state certified engineer”, GF was one of the most interesting employers in Dresden.
Since 2012, I have been Senior Section Manager in the Maintenance Services Department. I am responsible for 30 employees in four shifts. Our job is to perfectly clean special machine parts, the “kits”, from the cleanroom. Some of these parts we clean directly at our own maintenance shop, while for others we use the services of an external service provider. At all times, we must guarantee the timely return of these kits to production. Furthermore, I am responsible for the service and maintenance of all pumps and exhaust gas purifiers in the subfactory.
What I like about my job is that I work in a highly dynamic industry. I also work in an international environment here at the Dresden factory, which means I get to use my experience in dealing with different working cultures. The management position is another building block in my experience profile and it is fulfilling to see what our group can contribute to the corporate success.”
