I think when we set up the bending structure in America. I did that about 20 years ago. This was a really good feeling, because we were really successful then and we still are really successful. So I truly feel I was part of that.
When did you feel you were making an impact beyond your role?
When I can truly make an impact is when customers ask me for my advice. When they ask me what they should do to improve their production and to reduce cost. That is really something where I feel I have an impact.
