Success Story: Kathrin Schorn

Assembly employee in Wernberg


Please introduce yourself and your work.

My name is Kathrin Schorn. I have been with WILD Electronics since the end of 2008 and I am responsible for assembly of medical products and their final tests.

Why did you choose WILD as your employer?

I attended a Secondary School for Technology with a focus on electrical engineering and definitely wanted to work in the engineering sector. I am happy that WILD has given me this opportunity. In addition I live in Wernberg so I do not have to travel far to work.

What does a typical day look like for you?

I make different medical products. Among other things created at my workplace I make pointers for surgical navigation which are used in orthopaedic, neurological or ENT operations. These pointers make it easier for surgeons to interact with the navigation software. As this is quite a sensitive part, my experience in handling such components is important in my work.

What appeals to you about the area of production? What characterises your area?

It is varied work as I am trained in the assembly of many different products. This is quite challenging as there are generally 40 to 50 work steps that I have to carry out on the product. In addition to this there is the cooperation with other areas of production and development, with distribution and the area of quality management. All of this enriches my typical day at work.

What skills do you need to work in your area?

I need flexibility, patience, instinct, independent and precise working and a high level of quality awareness.
