Riitta-Liisa Lukkari retrained and found a job that really suits her!
Riitta-Liisa Lukkari, who works as a warehouse person at Escarmat, ended up in her current job by chance in 2005. Riitta-Liisa had gone back to study and was looking for a company where she could write her final thesis on the topic of quality and environmental coordination.
Escarmat offered Riitta-Liisa a suitable opportunity, with the company creating a temporary post for her with environmental responsibilities.
”My responsibilities included upgrading the Escarmat quality manual. At the beginning of 2006, I also performed secretarial duties for a period of six months. Afterwards, I took part in a warehouse development project, which landed me a permanent post as a warehouse operative,” Riitta-Liisa recalls.
Riitta-Liisa remembers the warehouse development project as a particularly interesting time.
”The quality manager and I got the warehouse development project off to a good start and it has continued improving ever since.”
Riitta-Liisa has worked at Escarmat’s warehouse since 2006, receiving the incoming goods.
”I accept virtually all the incoming small components and place them on the shelves. In addition to the traditional shelves, we have four Kardex automated warehouses, which greatly improve the inventory performance.”
Escarmat employs four employees at its warehouse. In addition to two employees receiving goods, there are people in charge of maintaining the Kardex warehouse systems, as well as persons who perform component collection for the Control Centre Assembler.
Although Kardex has made it easier for Escarmat to operate, a human remains in ultimate charge of stock accuracy.
”In my job, being diligent and punctual helps. We continually store 8,500 different components and the number seems to be growing all the time.”
According to Lukkari, a properly functioning warehouse is a prerequisite for successful operations company-wide.
”It must be remembered that control centre manufacturing starts with having all the necessary components handy,” Riitta-Liisa emphasises the importance of quality warehouse operations.
