Second Trainee going for his Global Assignment

Good morning everyone,

I am writing to you from Copenhagen Airport, on my way to the United States. I hope everything is well with you and that everyone is embracing this upcoming exciting journey towards One Aerospace. Well, at least I am very excited for what is to come and all the opporunities that lie ahead. I have been absent for quite a while from the blog which is NOT ok but I am writing to you now saying that I am moving abroad for my global assignment. My destination is Newington, Connecticut, known for its cold winters and … that is basically the only thing I have heard so far. Jokes aside, it is one of our major sites within GKN Aerospace which is also on its own exciting journey toward implementing Additve Manufacturing, which is super cool!

So about me. What am I going to do in the states for my abroad assignment. Well, for the past year I have grown a strong interest for Strategy, Technology, Industrial Structuring etc. or as an overencompassnig word, Business Development. I will be working on different key projects that revolve around evaluating, improving and structuring better value stream solutions to ensure that our offer to the customer is the best one possible. In correlation to this, I will support our Aftermarket division to strengthen our global footprint within that area.

To end this post, I would just like to say that this past year has gone by so quickly and I am grateful for all the input and help I have gotten at GKN Aerospace. The culture that we have within this company is hard to find anywhere else and I am really happy to be part of such a great company. Once again, thank you everyone for making this past year the best one yet. Have a great day and hope to see you on the other side of the atlantic some time in the near future.
