We make it happen
BENTELER focuses on its employees. Because they are the guarantor for our success. They make solutions happen – daily. Here a few are examples of our driven professionals:
Grace Hu is one of the 30,000-strong family of driven professionals benefiting from tailor-made training programs. Grace, director of Quality Department Asia/Pacific, was taking part in the “Talent Circle” and “Managers of Tomorrow” training initiatives. For over two years now she has been Plant Manager of BENTELER Automotive in Changchun, China. “Even after 20 years in the sector I can still learn things at BENTELER,” says Hu.
In good family tradition: Already Lukáš Ryčl‘s father worked for our company. He himself has been an employee of BENTELER Distribution in the Czech Republic for 18 years. From summer job to project manager for tube solutions: during his career he moved from the factory to the office and expanded his know-how through international training stays. Lukáš Ryčl is one of our 30,000 employees worldwide who make our solutions possible.
In our plant in Puebla we produce aluminium rear suspensions for a well-known German car manufacturer. The successful start of production was only possible through the cooperation of Mexican and German colleagues. Thanks to this great teamwork there has not been a customer complaint to date. We congratulate the entire team for this achievement - we make it happen!
From toolmaker to Vice President Operations at BENTELER Distribution: Tobias Liebelt has been with BENTELER for 25 years. During his career, he was responsible for seven plants worldwide as Global Supply Chain Manager. As a global company we support our employees versatilely and internationally.
At our French Automotive plant in Louviers, we now press and drill profiles with just one tool. The result: fewer tool changes, lower costs, faster production and thus a clear added value for our customers. This innovative solution was made possible by the cooperation of colleagues from different areas. Because teamwork is part of our corporate culture.
Uta Hilbert-Glaser works in the BENTELER HR department. Within this she has been in charge of employee development programs, the HR Controlling and the HR IT. Also for BENTELER in the USA where she launched a global standards agenda for Northern America. An exciting time in which she says she grew personally and also developed her professional skills.
In Chennai, India, an engineering team has been supporting our Automotive Division for ten years with designs, CAD drawings and simulations. Through regional expertise and worldwide knowledge transfer, we ensure the highest possible product quality for our customers. Congratulations to our colleagues from India on their 10th anniversary.
Identifying and promoting talent is a win-win for both sides. So it was with Daniel Wienhusen. He started his career at BENTELER with a combined studies program, for which he first needed to pass an apprenticeship. Then followed a bachelor´s degree, a master´s, and key account management. It all paid off: Since 2016 Daniel has been in charge of Industry 4.0 at BENTELER Automotive.
Top quality and an A-rating from our customers - our Chinese automotive location in Changchun is a showcase plant. The plant received the "BENTELER Best Plant Quality Award 2018" for the outstanding performance of its local colleagues. Congratulations!
From trainee to Managing Director of BENTELER Distribution Germany: Andreas Schmidt´s road to the top was boosted by experience abroad at BENTELER in the US and Russia.
