If there’s a fire, I’m the first on the scene! With my in-service training as a firefighter and as a member of the CHT plant fire brigade, I’ve fulfilled a cherished childhood dream. Aside from that, as a qualified chemical technician, I’m also responsible for making sure that nothing goes boom, gives off smoke or catches fire when textile auxiliaries are manufactured at CHT.
A friend of mine did his apprenticeship as a chemical technician at CHT and said very positive things about it. So I decided to apply for a position myself and of course had very high expectations when I started working here. And what can I say? My expectations have been met and I’m delighted to be with CHT. I particularly appreciate it that people value each other’s work and there’s a very warm and informal working atmosphere.
My daily responsibilities include producing and monitoring reaction products and blended products along with assisting and filling in for the foreman or shift supervisor. I particularly like that I work both in production and in the office. This allows me to follow the individual work steps very closely and learn even more about how things are done at CHT.
I was initially given the opportunity to pursue a training programme as a chemical technician, which I successfully completed. Three years later, I was offered the position of acting foreman, which I have held ever since. In addition, two years after my training, I decided to join the fire prevention group, which has now become the plant fire brigade. My next goal is to become a chemical industry supervisor.
