«I am proud to contribute to our Company’s success.»
I’m Marcus and I’ve been working as a member of the Purchasing department at Autoneum’s North American headquarters in Novi (Michigan) since 2010, now managing all North American Capex requirements for the organization. My job is to review the equipment requirements from an investment point of view. Among other things, I seek competitive proposals based on the technical specifications provided by the Manufacturing department. From here, I negotiate the best possible commercial terms to put Autoneum in an advantageous position from a budget and performance perspective, then making a recommendation of the most suitable supplier(s). I also initiate and implement appropriate measures in terms of maintenance and optimization of our manufacturing facilities for additional cost savings.
As Purchasing Manager at Autoneum, I am proud to contribute to our company’s success every day.

«It is a very multifaceted job.»
My name is Agustín and I’ve been working at Autoneum’s Argentinian plant in Córdoba since 2016. After working in various roles within the company, I am now the project engineer for our customer Renault. I started as an intern in quality management, subsequently worked as a quality engineer and when I was offered my present job after just four months I immediately accepted. It is a very multifaceted job that involves collaborating closely with our French customer and assisting with interesting projects from component development to process production optimization.
Autoneum has enabled me to start an exciting career and I look forward to further grow in my responsibilities and tasks.
