“Could I broaden my horizons more at another company? Not possible”, says Davor Selih, head of logistics and disposition at SG Automotive in Slovenia. »Some people say you should move on every 5 years, but I can’t say that I agree with them. In the 23 years I’ve been here, I’ve worked in almost every department, starting out in accounting, then purchasing & sales and now logistics and disposition. I never had to quit to find new challenges.”
“Come on, just between you and me, do you really enjoy working at SG Automotive, day after day?”
“It’s way more than just work. We’re like a family here. I really look forward to seeing the guys when I go in every morning.”
“But it must be pretty stressful right now with Corona, for example, when your suppliers aren’t able to deliver?”
“Absolutely. We are having to deal with exactly this challenge at the moment. One of our customers ordered 5,000 parts, yesterday he cancelled the entire order and then today he increased it to 17,000. But after so many years working in the automotive industry you get used to it – plus we’ve got a great team.”
“What else are you proud of?”
“We’ve got very prestigious customers, like #Daimler. Whenever I see their Sprinter or G Class on the road I say: ‘There goes another classic with one of our parts.’”
“It’s really an amazing feeling”, says DRAGICA PERBIL, in charge of Finance at SG Automotive, the Slovenian manufacturer of electronic components for the automotive industry, “usually I’m busy preparing sales reports, calculating our product margins and analyzing productivity. Today I was standing on our shop floor and seeing one of the products we produce for the very first time. And what’s even more amazing to me: I had no idea that this little part we produce is essential to the USB connection I use every day in my car for my iPhone. I feel proud to be a part of this!”
Have you ever had an “ah ha” moment like this one? Hand on heart – have you ever actually seen, live and up front, how the products in your company are produced? Or stood at the end of the production line to hold one of those products in your own two hands like Dragica did today?
A few years ago, I was asked to increase the motivation of the staff at a producer of headlamps. I found out that they knew literally every single screw in the headlamp, but had never actually seen how those headlamps looked in a car. What could be more fulfilling than a visit to the showroom of the local car dealer? You cannot imagine how proud they were to see their headlamps. And how motivating that moment was for them.
It’s not just any turn signal. It’s a turn signal marking one of the most awesome success stories in automotive history. Or as one of my friends put it: »Your turn signal may be small, but it’s a very crucial part of the #Mercedes #gclass.«
In 2020, the 400,000th SUV rolled out of the #MagnaSteyr plant in Graz/Austria. But it’s our team at SG Automotive in Slovenia that produces this turn signal.
»I am really proud of our team«, says Robert Svegler, production manager at SG Automotive, »in spite of all the challenges related to the virus, we did not fail to deliver a single turn signal to our customer.« How did we solve this problem of seemingly Gordian knot proportions?
1. We immediately changed our mindset from a rather static to an agile production and logistics process, right after Corona reared its ugly head.
2. We implemented daily »stand up« calls with our core team and we continue to manage our company this way.
3. We aligned our cash management with the liquidity situation of our customers and suppliers.
4. We introduced home office as a tool that enables our staff, for instance, to carry out home schooling with their kids or have virtual coffee breaks with their colleagues while still being able to use the time between these activities for their work.
