I can’t function in the morning without coffee.

Manuel
Laboratory Technician
With Trodat since March 2012

How I would describe my job to a friend:

I am responsible for chemical safety across the entire TroGroup. In addition, we develop special test procedures and release tests for stamp rubber, flash foams, inks and cartridge materials.<br/> My job is diverse; something different every day, because we work on a project basis.

What is the challenge in my job:

Participation in development projects from a chemical point of view is a core function. I am the contact person for ink production, internally and also for our customers. Particularly in the customising process ‒ the development of special inks according to customer requirements ‒ I feel completely at home. There are almost no limits, from stamp ink for concrete to etching ink for glass surfaces.

Where is my pioneering spirit:

I’ve been involved in Research & Development at Trodat from the start.
I see myself as a problem solver and I sometimes travel around the world visiting our company subsidiaries. It’s particularly exciting when something new is implemented in other countries. I supervise the process from the start of ink development through to our own series production.

What I particularly appreciate about Trodat:

In addition to the friendly interaction in the team, I particularly appreciate the fact that I can take part in decision-making in almost all areas of my job. 

Something personal about me:

In terms of sport, I like things a bit rougher; I love American Football (Steel Sharks). I’m most relaxed when I’m hiking, cooking or reading.
