SMS group GmbH
I know many manufacturers and external consultants for whom the subject of security is more of a hypocritical utterance. But regarding the team of Mr. Lauer, I am sure that they value it’s importance as highly as we do. Ultimately, it is about life-sustaining measures.
Project Manager electrical and safety engineering, SMS group GmbH
The SMS group is one of the world’s leading suppliers of plants, machines and services, installations and services along the entire metallurgical value chain. What began more than 140 years ago today represents a global group of companies on all continents.
Friedhelm Timmermann: “Our systems mostly operate automatically and people hardly ever come into contact with them during trouble-free processes. When problems occur, things are different. The high temperatures and forces with which metal is processed always pose a potential risk. I see it as my job to keep the risks as low as that I would always let someone close to me work on it.
As a project manager with many parallel projects I do not have the time to do all calculations and create all test plans myself. For risk assessment, verification and validation, I rely on the solution proposals from Lauer CE-Safety GmbH and especially on the experienced Mr. Winkelmann, with whom I have been working together in a trustful way for several years.
The broad practical experience of all engineers at Lauer CE-Safety GmbH makes the cooperation with them so fruitful. They combine competence with economic sense of proportion and find solutions that are safe and yet affordable. They are neither too lax nor too overly concerned with safety. This is what makes them stand out from other providers. This is why I have recommended Lauer CE-Safety GmbH several times out of conviction. We will continue our cooperation in the future.”
Friedhelm Timmermann has been working for the SMS group in Mönchengladbach for many years. In addition to the project management for electrical engineering, he is responsible for the safety engineering division. For him, the safety of the people working on the plants for which he is responsible is not just a job, but a matter close to his heart.
