Our people

Topy Tran, 27, multi-skilled production operator

"It has been more than 2 years that I have been lucky to work as Production Operator at the Vénissieux Engine Plant. My job is to carry out various assembly operations on our engines. I'm proud of our products and proud to work actively on their design in our terrific factory. For a year I've been on track to develop my versatility. We're offered the possibility of increasing our responsibilities through internal training.

I'm constantly acquiring skills and knowledge in how the entire production line works, meaning that I can offer real support to my colleagues. My source of motivation is the commitment and utility of every individual: a true collective dynamic of continuous improvement is at work, and we all have something to offer!"
