Making a difference
"My father had his own business in sorting machines. I used to spend a lot of time on the shop floor, just messing around. I think that is where my passion for technology came to live." To Rudy Krebbekx, the decision to go and study Mechanical Engineering was a logical one. With an additional bachelor in Business Administration his skill set grew divers.
"When TMC spotted me I had been in business for about twelve years. At first, I was not interested and had no intention to switch jobs. Six months later, in some sense, I felt ready for it and entered the rank and file of TMC’s Manufacturing Support. The important thing about TMC is that you work for various clients and are able to broaden your field of expertise substantially," Rudy explains his shift to TMC.
During his career with TMC, Rudy has worked for several clients. "Right now I am the Project Lead Industrialization at Fokker Aerostructures, a first-class specialist in the design, development and manufacturing of lightweight structures, modules for the aerospace and defense industry. My first task in this assignment was to manage the project that delivered required quality improvements in the assembly line to reduce rework. In this very complex environment, your focus has to be on the simplicity of things, the provision of structure in the problem solving process and on setting priorities." Rudy is proud that the highly skilled engineers at Fokker gleaned his approach and that they met the required improvements together. “After some months, my job expanded. Now I share responsibilities in the daily operation and maturisation of the Airbus A350 Outboard Flaps during the ramp-up phase."
"It is my drive to make a difference, to customers and to the organization. I trust them to recognize my contribution in the successes we jointly gain. TMC’s support is really part of our success. TMC offers unique possibilities in your career and in the development of your personal and professional skills", Rudy continues. "TMC works with renown high-tech companies and institutions and always succeeds in finding challenging positions to enrich the expertise of its Employeneurs. Currently, I am participating in a course on Project Management, given by TMC. It helps me making meaningful contributions and making a difference, now and tomorrow".
