Meet our people
My story with Glaston started three years before I really joined the company. In the late 90s, I worked for a glass processing company in Russia where I was responsible for the company’s entire technological process, starting from glass pre-processing through to packing. At some point, the company purchased one of Russia’s first Glaston (Tamglass) flat glass tempering lines.Read more
I first got to know Glaston through an internship during the spring of 2013 – and I’ve stayed here ever since. In 2014, I got a permanent job in Glaston as a machine mechanic. My main job is to connect the electricity within the glass processing machines. In practice, I check the connections from electrical drawings and then make all the necessary connections for the machines.Read more
I started working at Glaston in 2003. Before that, I had recently graduated as a production engineer with 10 years of experience from my previous job doing maintenance work inside a big bakery factory in Brazil with a production capacity of around 200,000 bread buns per day. I went to a university night school and worked the day shift – a normal way in Brazil to be able to graduate without having one’s parents pay for the education.Read more
I read long ago that only 10% of working-age people are doing the job they like, 5% are following their passion and 3–5% do not set any goals at all – the rest are just living from day to day. When I joined Glaston Group with already 9 years of experience in this industry, I discovered that no one is only halfway happy here – it’s always 100% of effort and passion, if not more.
In 2001, I began my career at Glaston as an engineer trainee in the electrical and automation department. And in retrospect, this is how it all began for me at Glaston. After graduating as an electrical automation engineer, I continued working with electrical engineering until 2003 when I transferred to become an installation supervisor. In this position, I literally supervised our machine installations all over the world.Read more
I graduated from the Tampere University of Applied Science in Hervanta, Finland, in the spring of 2014, and in December of that same year, I started working at Glaston. I work in the assembly hall where my work includes taking care of the electrical connections for the glass processing machines as well as the machine assembly.Read more
