Employee profiles

Be it as a trainee, a service engineer or a project manager – ELOKON employees’ working days are diverse and filled with varied and interesting tasks. Here our employees share details of their day to day work responsibilities, giving you an interesting insight into life at ELOKON.

My way to ELOKON

It all began after school with my training to become a motor vehicle mechatronics technician. After completing my training, I moved to the field of Material Handling Equipment. I was particularly interested in the technical diversity of the MHE sector and the interaction of electrics, mechanics and hydraulics.

A little over two years later I changed to another company which specializes in industrial furnaces. However, after completing my studies it was clear to me that I would like to go back to the field of MHE. Why? This sector offers a tremendously diverse range of opportunities: new technologies and work in an area that is constantly moving with the times really fascinates me.

I arrived here at ELOKON through a good friend who is associated with the company. He told me that the ELOKON technicians are a really happy bunch of people and are also very skilled at their jobs. After some research, I sent ELOKON my application and was invited to a personal meeting.

My area

My tasks as a service technician include commissioning, maintenance and troubleshooting of our Personnel Protection and Assistance Systems at the customer's location. This means that the legal requirements and customer requests are mechanically and electronically implemented. Each customer has different requirements and installations. This makes the job varied and fascinating. Every customer project is adapted and tailored to the customer.

What I particularly like about working at ELOKON

I particularly enjoy the interaction with our customers and the continuously changing day-to-day work. The new challenges I face on a regular basis make my job so appealing. I have the opportunity to develop my skill set and to continuously learn something new. No two projects or customers are alike; we therefore develop individual solutions to meet every requirement. These challenges help to inspire me. I consider the team work and spirit in the company to be particularly important, just like the friendliness that prevails among colleagues.

My personal highlight at ELOKON

My personal highlight at ELOKON was my first week in the company. I was immediately introduced to all my colleagues and received a very nice, warm welcome. After the first meeting I had the chance to experience our products in action at a customer’s site. Following intense product training and induction I was able to carry out installations and maintenance on my own. Employees are given responsibility for performing their duties so that independent and flexible working is possible.

My way to ELOKON

After my A Level graduation in 2011, I briefly started a course in the field of public administration. But I soon realized that this corresponded neither to my expectations nor my strengths. So I was soon on the lookout for an alternative, which I eventually found in the wide-ranging and interesting vocational training at ELOKON.

My area

Whether installation, service and maintenance - as a procurement manager in customer service I manage all the appointments of our sales representatives. Furthermore, I organize trips abroad and I support the staff of our main office.

What I particularly like about working at ELOKON

The work as a procurement manager in the service department brings many new challenges every day. Postponements, the current traffic conditions and the wishes of our customers are just a few issues that have a major influence on the daily schedules. But that's what I love about my job: no day is ever the same and I often need to come up with an appropriate solution as quickly as I can in order to offer the best possible support for our customers.

My personal highlight at ELOKON

Right from the start I was impressed with the confidence that ELOKON places in its employees. I was unusual in that I started my first academic year in the second term, but thanks to the great mentoring from my instructor I was able to shorten my training period by six months and could complete this within two years.
