This week Sergey Popov, UEC-PE Managing Director, and Nadezhda Bolbat, the Quality Director, have awarded ten engine builders with diplomas and silver signs for “Excellence in Quality” following the work results of 2018.

These people have one common feature - they apply higher requirements to themselves and their labor, flawlessly perform any job they start and each of them succeeds in sharing their expertise and knowledge with youngsters. Here are their names: Igor Mikhalyov, forge-man, Ilnar Khalilov, drilling machine operator, Aleksandra Druzhinina, EDM specialist, Viktoriya Sabitova, grinder operator, Aleksey Dementyev, CNC machine operator, Denis Shirinkin and Andrey Statsenkov, construction metal workers, Andrey Subbotin, Sergey Ivanov and Yevgeniy Ivshin, assembly fitters.

As a rule, the list of honor comprises highly qualified resources with no violations, admonitions or unexcused absence. They constantly raise their professional level, participate in mastering of new production processes.

For instance, within only two years Andrey Subbotin has gotten the greatest – the sixth – grade as an engine assembly fitter.

- The thing is that I really like my job – think, deal with processes, find ways out of extraordinary situations, says A. Subbotin. – We have a great team, and together we work towards the same result.

Aleksandra Druzhinina has been with the company for eight years already, within this period she has mastered in skills of grinder operator and EDM specialist. The scope of her responsibility covers eight machines performing different operations. As the result, per shift this outstanding quality worker releases 16 finished nozzle guide vanes for aircraft and industrial engines (when she started, she could manage only eight).

For Igor Mikhalyov, forge-man, there is nothing extraordinary in his strenuous profession.

- My job is not an easy one, but it’s very creative, and some people have a talent for this, some people don’t. Quality is a key aspect in our business. If there is quality there will be sustainable development of the company, he reckons.

Sergey Popov thanked awardees for the responsible attitude to the work, for manufacturing reliable engines.

- It’s crucial for us to have such people as many as possible. And so it is more challenging for the committee to choose ten “A-specialists”, said the Managing Director.
