Zhenzhao has worked with Kongsberg Automotive (KA) since 2011. He had two main reasons for joining the plant in Wuxi, China. First of all he wanted new challenges, but he also wanted to work closer to home. Today he spends around one hour commuting to work. In his previous job with Johnson Control, he spent several hours every day.
“Now I get more time to play with my son”, Zhenzhao explains
Makes a difference
Zhenzhao had several offers when he decided to come to KA. One of his main reasons for choosing KA was that he saw he could make a difference in engineering improvements.
I believe KA in China can improve when it comes to engineering. I also think that we can improve on the marketing side of business, and grow considerably in China. I am proud to grow with KA, Zhenzhao tells
Zhenzhao works as a R&D Manager in the Driveline Systems business area and his team counts 18 people. Most of them recruited over the last two years. He explains that his job is very interesting, as he is developing and further enhancing existing gear shift equipment. Zhenzhao claims that his goal is to build the best shifter R&D department in Asia!
“We have to keep quality at a high level, all the time. Quality is our paramount goal. That is key to win new customers and markets”, he states.
I use the learnings from my time as a trainee every day
