Success stories of our employees
Exciting & diverse
Anna-Lena Lohmeyer talks about her career at PETER / LACKE...
After training as a lacquer and varnish laboratory technician, Anna-Lena Lohmeyer worked for PETER / LACKE in the development department. But she wanted to achieve more – she returned to us after further training as a state recognised technician in Stuttgart.
“Pharmaceutical or coatings industry? I asked myself this question after leaving secondary school. A student internship gave me some insight into the pharmaceutical industry. I liked it, and I desperately wanted to choose a profession in the chemical industry. In my own research, I chanced upon the job description for a lacquer and varnish laboratory technician. It sounded exciting and varied. The fact that I didn’t need to move for training at PETER / LACKE was also an advantage, of course. After training, I started in the design department. But after three years in the department, I no longer found the development of colours fulfilling. I had heard from technicians during the training. My colleagues in the team who had already completed the further training supported me in my decision and PETER / LACKE accommodated me by giving me a two year leave of absence so that I was able to complete my further training as a state recognised technician in colour and design in Stuttgart. There, I was able to deepen my knowledge and we looked not only at other fields, but also at other companies. I value the benefits of a family company. We are a team and there is no anonymity across the whole site. After my return, I changed jobs. In the R&D laboratory, I work on coating systems for the automotive industry. It is a great feeling to see how developments from the laboratory are brought to series production. From 2015, the change of career continued. The laboratory supervisor came to me and offered me the position of assistant to the technical management. I now have a predominantly administrative role, organising and coordinating various laboratory projects. But I still have my laboratory days, that was very important to me.
A real fast mover
Patrick Beck talks about her career at PETER / LACKE...
Step by step, Patrick Beck developed into a production manager. Today, he is the first point of contact for the employees. There are around 50 employees working in production, and a further 50 in the laboratory.
“I am someone who likes to make progress, which is why I trained as an industrial specialist in the field of coatings and attended an intensive course in Bremen in 2016. The IHK [Chamber of Industry and Commerce] examination took place the same year in Lüneburg, and I have now been a production manager at PETER / LACKE since the middle of 2016. I primarily support the head of production technology, and am responsible for order and employee management in production, order tracking, and optimisation of the production processes. I particularly like the fact that it is possible to change and improve things in production. Although there is a lot too do, I also get great support. Everyone here is very open and team-oriented, there is a rather informal atmosphere.”
