Under the spotlight this week is Graham Robinson, our energetic Production Manager. One of the newest members of the Linkam team he's already made his mark on the production department, and the company as a whole, by helping reduce the time it takes to make and repair your stage.
How long have you worked at Linkam?
What’s the best part of working at Linkam?
The satisfaction of working in a great team environment.
Tell us about your studies and work experience. What were you doing before Linkam?
I was working as a cycle time leader at Honeywell Wheels and Brakes Repairs Company. My role was to reduce lead times and remove as much 'white noise or waste' from the processes as possible and to add value to the value systems.
Why did you choose a production career?
I started out as a fly press operator and naturally progressed to supervisor/team leader. I then moved on to management. I always wanted to be a footballer though.
What makes you passionate about science/engineering?
Making 'something' out of nothing.
How would you describe your average day at Linkam?
Hectic, but enjoyable.
Has the company changed much since you started working here?
Yes, the mindset has changed and there is a noticeable air of everybody rising up to meet a challenge.
What are your hobbies?
I watch rugby, go to the gym and enjoy outdoor sports. I like reading sports autobiographies.
Where do you want to be in ten years?
I would like to become an Operational Manager.
And lastly, where did you go on your last holiday?
Turkey - Oludeniz (the blue lagoon) where it rained for three days straight. But that didn't deter me from swimming in the thunderstorms!
We hope you are enjoying the snap-shot of the lives of the people who play a part in creating your Linkam stage.
