A visit to the Logstrup Production Facility
A group of young aspiring people from Schneider Electric visited our production facilities at our headquarters in Denmark and got to experience the production of our switchboards and switchgear solutions up close.
In October a group of young men and women from Schneider Electrics graduate program were invited inside Logstrup Denmark on an extended tour of the production of our low voltage switchboard solutions. The purpose of the visit and tour was to provide an insight into the process of producing low voltage solutions, and how Schneider Electric can play a part in the process as well to further the graduates interest and knowledge in the industry.
Powered by motivation and curiosity
Sales Manager Johannes Ley greeted the young men and women as soon as their bus arrived at the parking lot. Out stepped the talented young people with different academic backgrounds, but a shared interest in the power supply industry.
At the first part of their visit, they were introduced to our company history and safety measures at Logstrup. Afterwards the main event of the day took place, an in-depth tour of our production line, assembly hall and warehouse facility. The graduates were introduced to every part of the production process from receiving the raw materials, how both steel and copper is processed, cut and bend, and how the Logstrup production methods stands out from our competitors and makes our products unique.
“It [the tour] kind of opened my mind to how the things I’m going to be working with is actually included, because I’m going to be working with the circuit breakers in particular. So I got to see how the breakers are structured inside the panels.”
The interest especially peaked when the group was introduced to the automatized part of the production line; particularly our robots. One of the visitors Viktoria, Marketing and Sales, pointed out that some of them doesn’t come from a technical background but from an education in business, marketing and sales, such as herself therefore it was a very insightful experience to see the machines and processes that goes into the making of a switchboard and where Schneider Electric contributes to the end product. Viktoria wasn’t the only one who found the building process interesting. Another visitor Michaela, Service, Management and Business, found the insight in the production process to be relevant to her work at Schneider Electric, because she gained some more understanding of how the products are used.
“To understand how it builds from one part to another, I would say I was really into, especially in the end having the whole thing done in the showroom”
Curiosity is encouraged
A common feedback from our guests was the feeling of being welcomed and included in the tour. Emil and Michaela highlighted the friendly atmosphere that is present at Logstrup and how it made them feel comfortable and able to ask questions freely. At Logstrup we are happy to receive such positive feedback, and we highly value the interest and curiosity from the future generation.
