Meet Emma from Sweden
I work as Industrializational Manager at Fagerhults Belysning AB, responsible for our tooling department, maintenance department and production engineering department. I make sure that we have a modern and competitive production system.
In my position, I am the link between design and production, which means I work closely with our design department, ensuring that we have the right technical equipment to produce new light fixture styles. In addition, I am also a member of the factory’s management team, which means I work quite a lot with strategic issues.
After graduating from Jönköping University in 2006, I started working as a project engineer at JELD-WEN Door Solutions in Forserum, outside of Jönköping. A few years later I worked there as a production supervisor, and after another couple of years I was promoted to production manager. Since February 2015, I have worked at Fagerhults Belysning.
Following the bachelor’s programme in Industrial Engineering and Management at the School of Engineering gave me great insight into the industrial sectors. Had the school not introduced me to this world, I am quite sure that I would never have continued my graduate studies within Production Systems. Performing several assignments at various companies, we were given the opportunity to apply what we had learned early on, which was a fantastic way to gain new knowledge and evolve as a student.
