New Production Engineering Manager in our Riga plant

Mr. Pedro Fernández from Spain has agreed to join our Latvian team at HGF as the new Production Engineering Manager. Mr. Fernández holds a MSc in Industrial Engineering and has previously worked for U-Shin in Slovakia.

“What’s common for U-Shin and HGF is the way they think in processes and the way they work with the industrialisation of new products”, says Pedro Fernández. “The automotive industry sets high standards and they apply whether you supply metal components or rubber parts.”
 
Mr. Fernández has an important role at our Riga plant now that we are increasing our production capacity to include parts for all our six Business Areas. He will also work closely with our sales organisation to foster good and fruitful relations with our customers. Mr. Fernández is currently undergoing training at our Swedish facilities where he is taking in our HGF company culture, he’s learning about our products and processes, and the way we think and live lean production.
