Manager Integration Group and Project Leader, Axetris AG
“We deliberately set ourselves high but realistic objectives. I appreciate this aspect of my work.”
The fact that Petra Staiger is comfortable in a high-tech environment, as is the case at Axetris, is no surprise. She became interested in technology at an early age and learned everything she could about it from the bottom up. Throughout her galvanizing apprenticeship, her study of material science and surface technology, as well as the various stages of her engineering career, she has developed a solid technical foundation on which she can continue to build.
In October 2015, she took over the project management for the Micro Optics division at Axetris AG. She plans a project from beginning to end, organizes the relevant meetings, and keeps an eye on the various production steps and above all, the timeline. She managed around 40 projects in 2016 alone, finishing the desired prototype in just 6–12 weeks.
She has also been the Integration Group (ITG) manager since June 2016. There she heads a team of 10, which supports production in the clean room with system and process issues. She and her team are the contacts who ensure that everything runs smoothly. “We are moving in a rapidly growing market. We are facing it with a lot of motivation and a thirst for innovation.”
Petra Staiger is also very active outside of work. Weather permitting, she can be found on her motorcycle or at her garden plot.
