Motto: Improvement is a continuous process

“Hello, my name is Drahomír Koudelka. I have been working in production companies for more than 20 years, mostly in the automotive sector at tier-1 suppliers. I started my career as a coordinator of CIP projects and became head of a small, but highly efficient production section early on. Soon thereafter, I was put in charge of new and larger projects. My duties included a number of production transfers from other countries to the Czech Republic which were very interesting. Very quickly, I also assumed production management duties.

In the past 15 years, I have been working as a manager of manufacturing plants. During that time, I was able to acquire a lot of know-how especially in areas like change control, the start-up of new projects and the expansion of production capacities. My experience includes setting up a plant on previously undeveloped land or the final completion of new buildings in older production facilities that were built and expanded over many years. During my career, I also had to manage crisis situations and their consequences.

I would describe myself as a practical and pragmatic person. I believe that one can achieve great things with a systematic approach and continuous improvements. Predefined goals can be achieved one step at a time, even if they may seem out of reach initially. I carry the philosophy of continuous improvement in my heart. That is why I always prefer to choose a small step in the right direction towards a solution rather than wait for help from the outside, let alone a miracle.

I have a lot of experience with just-in-time manufacturing and have been working under delivery pressures for a long time. This has taught me that a quick response is always the best way to solve a problem. In my new job, I will not spend all my time in the office. To me, it is just as important to come to the production floor frequently so that I can experience the employees’ day-to-day challenges first-hand.

I already had the opportunity to get to know Pollmann on the supplier side. I have always been very impressed with Pollmann’s approach to the technical and technological development related to automation and robotics processes.

In my new role at Pollmann, I accept full responsibility for results and the achievement of goals. I believe that working together we will succeed the development of this production plant. I look very much forward to working with all of you!”
