What did you study and why?
I studied electricity in Togo and later I studied Electro Mechanics in Liège. I followed these studies because I thought that this could increase my chances on the labor market.
What were you looking for in your job?
I was looking for a full time job in a technical environment and in a company that could give me career opportunities.
What was your first impression of Asco as employer and how did things go during your first few weeks/months?
On my arrival at Asco, I immediately noticed that the work was not ‘too stressful’. The colleagues were kind and there was mutual respect between the colleagues. What really touched me was the fact that Mr. Roger Boas (the CEO) was a very friendly person. He always greeted us with the legendary words : “Ça va, mes copains?” This is something that I will never forget and I am really sad about the fact that Mr Roger Boas died too young.
What is the exact content of your job and how do you see yourself evolving in Asco?
My work consists of the assembly of mechanical parts. I believe that I am evolving in a good direction in this organization without having too much stress, which is very important for me. In the future I would like to see myself participating in other project in Asco.
Can you briefly explain the operation of your department?
My department works on the assembly of pieces of the Airbus A320 and A380. We assembly approximately 24 to 26 slat tracks a day, and you need 24 slat tracks for one airplane. The first thing I do when I take a plane is looking where ‘my pieces’ are put in the wings of the airplane.
Why is Asco the right choice for you?
I think Asco is the right choice for me because everybody is really friendly and open. Even though there are so many cultures and a lot of different languages, we find a way to communicate in an effective way. We all work together for the same goal and personally I think that the aviation sector will not stop growing. I can see myself working here the rest of my career. I even hope that my children will have the opportunity to work for this great company.
