David Simianam, Quality and Inventory Controller at thyssenkrupp Materials Australia

In his 14 years with thyssenkrupp Materials Australia, David has watched the business grow into a very successful company.

David is one of many to have benefitted from the company’s commitment to offering a pathway to all of their employees to further their careers within the organisation. Having started in 2001 as a guillotine operator in the sheet cell, he then moved up to quality and inventory controller, and is now also the Safety Representative for our site.

During the course of his work in the despatch office, David gets to engage with customers from time to time, and the feedback he consistently receives from them is that they have a high regard for our quality products and value added services.

As inventory controller, David has come to be known as the lean champion for the shop floor, but his success in running a tight ship would not be possible were it not for the cooperation of his fellow staff.

With thyssenkrupp empowering all of their staff to make the changes necessary to work together as a unit to the very best of their abilities, it has enabled David and his colleagues to produce great results for the business and our customers.

Ben Dayhew, Senior Engineer Structural (Mining) at Industrial Solutions Australia

Ben’s role when he joined the company was to ensure the structures we designed and built stood tall and proud, as a Structural Engineer covering sectors such as Iron Ore and Coal Mining.

Having developed his knowledge and skills, Ben moved on to become a Design Site Engineer. In his role, Ben served as the key interface between teams both on site and off site, and like many he faced numerous challenges. An experience he’ll always remember is working with the Bucket Wheel and Gear Box change-out on a sizeable Reclaimer where it had to be done in a single lift.

Balancing technical enquiries and practical fabrication and construction was vital, and with support from hard-working team members, this was achieved. Ben has been with us for awhile now and is currently responsible for a team of Structural Engineers across two high-profile mining projects.

Ben’s progression is a result of hard work and thyssenkrupp is glad to have him and his colleagues with us, progressing their career alongside the company into greater heights.
