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.

Juergen Treichel, Project Manager at thyssenkrupp Materials Trading Australia

As the longest serving staff member at thyssenkrupp Materials Trading in Australia, having joined the company in October 1999, Juergen has witnessed and played a part in the strong growth enjoyed by the company in a number of areas in the intervening years.

Juergen’s role when he joined the company was to bring stainless steel production to the business, as the Product Manager for stainless steel.

Having introduced this product segment to our company and developed it steadily over the last 16 years, it is hugely gratifying for Juergen to see that our stainless steel business now represents about 30% of the company’s total turnover.

This has been achieved with the support from hard-working team members and utilising the resources of our internal support functions, particularly our operations and finance teams.

The result of all that hard work from Juergen and the team is that after starting from scratch 16 years ago, thyssenkrupp Materials Trading Australia is now - and has been for a long time - a well-established player as a trading house in this highly competitive market segment.
