What I enjoy most about my job is that it gives me great opportunities to focus on developing and innovating our production methods and processes alongside my colleagues. In addition, I am responsible for ensuring that all products are produced in a safe manner and delivered according to our customers’ needs, on time and at the agreed price. Managing such a vast and dynamic department is very fulfilling, as I have the responsibility to encourage and motivate my team along their own career paths.
In the future, I believe that as a business, we need to be ahead of the game in the digitalization race. One of my main goals in my position now, is to really focus on the development of our digital processes throughout the production areas and business as a whole. Working together with young and talented students gives us fresh ideas on how we can reach our goals in new and diverse ways. I have a strong belief that a company’s ability to adapt and use new technologies is crucial to survive in the future marketplace. This is only the beginning and there are many exciting projects that I hope to be a part of during my career at Trelleborg.
Trelleborg is a world leader and an active player within global industry. This allows me to shape industry from the inside by driving global innovation, enhancing my skill set, making a difference and having a real impact.
I joined Trelleborg Offshore’s operation in Norway at the age of 27. Coming from a company like Equinor, I had my expectations of how my life would be in another global firm. In 2017, I was officially a trainee at Trelleborg Offshore, with a huge amount of ambition and motivation. Working closely with the Continuous Improvement Manager on a variety of different projects, I was involved in focusing on establishing more efficient ways of doing things. During this period, my main project was to develop a standard calculation tool to use in the bidding phases. Alongside this, I was running several smaller projects including creating a new template for our internal coating reports. This created the perfect foundation for our digital project currently running and managed by a group of student interns from NMBU.
In April 2018, I was asked to support the busy coating production department with strategic planning. This continued until October 2019, when I was promoted to Production Manager for our largest manufacturing area consisting of several key departments including coating. Having been promoted to Production Manager after one full year as a trainee, I was very proud and ready for the challenge ahead. The skills I had acquired at university combined with the strategic skills I had learned during my time as a trainee promised a natural transition into the position.
