Project Manager, Division Automotive, Project Management GER

With Grammer since 1999

“You can tell a good project manager by the fact that he's got more balls in the air than he's holding.”

 

 

Matthias, you are our longest-serving testimonial at Grammer. What are the reasons that you have been loyal to Grammer for some many years?

Grammer gives you the opportunity to gather insights and make contact with all specialist fields and departments. Due to the wide variety of technologies and manufacturing depths, there is a lot to explore and experience. At the same time GRAMMER is a GLOBAL company with production locations and projects all over the world, and thus also offers interesting cultural insights and challenges. The prerequisite for this is that YOU want it and that you accept these challenges.

What fascinates you about your job?

The alternation between technical topics and commercial responsibility in connection with various interfaces - people / persons / characters / departments. I get an insight into the whole process chain from supplier to production process in the factory through to the customer. This requires a "roundabout of communication".

What do you value about Grammer as an employer?

Grammer is a down-to-earth company that has to assert itself on the global market and compete with its competitors. I value collaborating with colleagues as well as mutual support. It is great that the gaps between the hierarchy levels are not as large as they are in other corporations and there are points of contact from the assembly staff right up to the board of directors.
