We helped engineers build the first self-contained artificial heart. Our end-to-end onsite engineering resulted in China’s first air-jet loom for manufacturing, and we’ve been a pioneer in hybrid motor technology for transportation for two decades.

We work together to win together.

I started with Kollmorgen at the Rock Road, Radford, VA USA manufacturing plant as a Machinist after studying Machine Technology at a local university. I instantly felt right at home in the work environment at Kollmorgen. This was my first Machinist position, so I was nervous about how I was going to perform applying to real life what I’d learned in school. Everyone was so willing to help and share their years of experience. I was promoted to 2nd Shift Lead Machinist at our Kollmorgen Rock Road plant and then transitioned into a first shift Machinist role at Kollmorgen Main Street in Radford, VA USA.

I spent 5 years at Rock Road and, although it was a big step relocating to another Kollmorgen plant, the culture of Kollmorgen encourages growth and I was determined to continue to learn. I truly enjoyed working at Main Street and Rock Road, but after almost 9 years of moving around in Machining positions I was still wanting to grow within the company. I am a true believer in “hard work pays off”. I accepted a Manufacturing Engineering Tech Role back at my home base at Rock Road. I’ve been in this role for one year and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. After 10 years at Kollmorgen, spending almost equal time at two plants, I can say with confidence I am looking forward to another 10 years with his amazing company!

I have a solid logistic background within large industrial based enterprises. The industrial trend is to relocate units globally to stay competitive. That brings uncertainty to the workforce. I joined Kollmorgen because their hi-tech products are the opposite; innovation based services. You can’t relocate that type of know-how easily. That’s where I want to invest myself.

Being at the core of our supply chain, I’m responsible for relations and negotiation with our suppliers. It’s about trust, being on-time and on-budget. I do have a slightly “obsessive” tendency towards process efficiency improvement.

The key difference between large enterprise and Kollmorgen is that here you aren’t caught in “political bureaucracy”. The atmosphere is more open which encourages you to contribute. And that make us move fast!

Bakusou kyoudai lets go! -This Japanese racing manga-cartoon was probably my biggest childhood influence. I got crazy about RC-cars, building my own from component level to compete with friends.

AGVs, although not directly suitable for the racing-track, bring that childhood fun back! The open “garage-lab-style” environment here is like the “Bakusou kyoudai pitstop”. Kollmorgen gives you a lot of flexibility with a focus on creativity and openness.

I came across Kollmorgen's AGVs on a site while working for an RGV company. Considering the “Made in China 2025 plan” with its heavy focus on intelligent automation, I gained a huge interest in working for Kollmorgen.

My job is to fit our solutions at customer sites through engineering, support, on-site training, and troubleshooting. It involves a lot of travel and meeting new people.

Studied: Mechanical Engineering and Automation, Shanghai University of Science and Technology & Manufacturing System Engineering, Liverpool John Moores University.
