From Budapest to the US

Automotive-sector | People at thyssenkrupp | From the Electrical Engineering Competence Center in Budapest Hungary to the North American EPS in Troy, MI, Imre Benyo has definitely made moves as well as good use of his extensive Mechanical and Electrical Engineering expertise. He says that what he likes most about his job are the versatile tasks as well as the freedom to perform those tasks.

Imre recalls that his best moments with thyssenkrupp have been when he and his team received good feedback from customers. “As an Engineering Manager and Project Leader, I have been lucky to have experienced favorable feedback from customers on several different occasions and this is certainly a highlight of my job.”  He owes these successes to hard work, good customer cooperation and high level of expertise from other thyssenkrupp colleagues.

Close to the customer, close to the product

And what does he like most about his job? He enjoys the workplace at thyssenkrupp Presta North America because you are close to the customers as well as the product and on a relatively small team. “My team in Troy is simply great and I relish the open-minded atmosphere of such a well-qualified, highly-motivated and success-oriented team. For us it is important to be aware of the whole story, be able to represent the thyssenkrupp product line for customers, and also able to work with the products, in detail, if necessary.” And that is something his team has in the bag!

Collaboration with Hungary and Liechtenstein

Imre remarks that even as a kid, he always thought that he would be working in this field and that he still enjoys working on EPS systems. He notes that even after 12 years, he is still discovering new things and really enjoys relevant technologies. “A typical day in my life? Well, such a day may include discussions with colleagues in Budapest (Hungary) and/or Eschen (Liechtenstein). Additionally, there may be meetings with customers as well as preparing for presentations and development work for the demos.”

During his two-year stay in the USA, Imre realizes the importance of understanding the US culture, people and “American spirit”, and has already had the opportunity to visit nearly twenty National Parks as well as several major cities (e.g. Detroit, New York, Chicago, Seattle, Boston, Denver, etc.) and nearly 22 states!
