Meet Peikko Production People: Peikko Russia

Last year we were introducing a few of our Engineers, representing various Peikko Units. And this year we want to focus on our production people – the hands, which make Peikko products and carry the final responsibility for making our Customers happy with our quality.


We will be introducing people from different Peikko Production Units and in this article please meet Mikhail and Yurii from Peikko Russia.

MIKHAIL RYKHTIKOV, PRODUCTION FOREMAN

When did you start in Peikko and what is your job in Peikko about?

I started in Peikko 22.04.2013 as a Welder, and now after 8 years working on Production Foreman position.

What do you like most about your job?

I really like that in my daily work I face interesting new challenges. It is important for me that there is no routine in my work. Throughout the entire working period in the company, I have had the opportunity to move forward and develop myself. 

What projects or products that you worked on were/are the most interesting for you?

One of the valuable experiences was with thread rolling on IMACRO bars using new machine. Also, I liked DELTABEAM® projects with specific configuration of the beams, which included a lot of modified down stands and formworks. 

What is going well in your team that you would like to mention?

Support and mutual assistance from teammates in difficult situations. 

What are you most proud or happy related to your job at the moment?

The most important thing that I can mention is recognition of my job by colleagues. It is so motivating when your work is appreciated and beneficial to the company. 

What was the biggest challenge in your Peikko work so far and how did you solve it?

The biggest challenge was producing the products on the machines' maximum capacity level. It was dangerous to produce the biggest bolt sizes and I was traveling to Peikko Finland production for couple of days to produce the goods there and keep the delivery schedule on time. One more challenge was related to the deviations between the DELTABEAM® drawings and installation drawings. We helped the customer to do repair job on the construction site.

What are your biggest interests outside working life?

Besides my job, I like fishing, spending time with family. Also, I like doing car repair works, helping friends to resolve different technical issues. ​​

 

YURII NIKITIN, LOCKSMITH REPAIRMAN, PRODUCTION DEPARTMENT

When did you start in Peikko and what is your job in Peikko about?

I started in Peikko at 21.03.2011 as a welder. Since 01.06.2019 I am working as a locksmith repairman. Now I am making the jigs for all machines and equipment (in particular for welding robots), also the assembly table for ARBOX® (by Peikko Hungary sketch)

What do you like most about your job?

There are two interesting things. Firstly, it's a big workload. More difficult and harder the task is, the more interesting is working on it. Secondly, there is an opportunity to invent and implement your ideas in real processes.

What projects or products that you worked on were/are the most interesting for you?

Participation in the process of launching the PPM® 60, 54, 52 production. Non-standard large jig development (about 100kg). This jig allows to speed up the manufacturing process.

What is going well in your team that you would like to mention?

Our repair team is quite new. I would highlight decency, honestly, hard work and attention to the details. Teamwork and systematic work are very important.

What are you most proud or happy related to your job at the moment?

See the result of my work and no complaints from the colleagues.

What was the biggest challenge in your Peikko work so far and how did you solve it?

Everything is interesting when working with equipment. When I got my new position, I was the only repairman here and there were a lot of repair tasks for me.

What are your biggest interests outside working life?

My family and my grandchildren. I try to spend all my free time with them. I like travelling to other countries. In sports I like table tennis, football, volleyball, water polo.​
