Courage in a man's world
About five years ago, Amanda Reel came directly to TRUMPF's US subsidiary in Farmington (Connecticut) after completing her vocational training. She was the company's first female welder ever. While doing shift work, she also took part in an on-the-job training program. Just three years later, she followed in the footsteps of her team leader, who supported her and encouraged her to become a leader herself. Now Amanda is once again facing a new challenge: she is passing on her extensive machine expertise to service employees and customers in training courses. This means they can benefit from her many years of experience, also as a manager, with TRUMPF.
