Initally majoring in Marketing and Management, Zhu Zongbao, Preventive Equipment Maintenance Manager, studied the main skills of his position on his own.
"Maintenance requires at least 5 years of maintenance experience, skilled operation of CAD* drawings, 3D drawings and even mechanical designing. It is necessary knowledge for this job," he explains.
His team cooperates closely with European experts and coworkers from Changzhou sister companies. He now applies this experience to the daily work at Tianda, in order to ensure production continuity, maximize equipment reliability and optimize its utilization. Maintenance work requires that Zongbao always pays attention to details.
Indeed, these activities help reduce costs while improving equipment productivity. Therefore, preventive maintenance is more meaningful than routine.
"Joining Vallourec and Tianda teams is a good opportunity for my personal development. It helps me enhance my ability to work and my own competitiveness, and improve my occupational value. Vallourec's values are now integrated with Tianda's pragmatic, hard-working traditional culture, and it is truly lucky that both work together," said Zhu Zongbao.
