Meet the Team Featuring Chris Longrey
Q. What are your responsibilities on the Blickle US team?
A. I am officially one of our Sales Engineers, but unofficially I am manufacturing support, quality control, product trainer, and even some times the receptionist! I help to answer technical questions, find application solutions for our customers, manage part and bill of material databases, create 3D models and 2D prints, manage projects, and help train employees and customers about Blickle products.
Q. How would you describe your work life at Blickle US?
A. We are a well-oiled machine. A lot of our team members have worked together for years, which makes collaboration and communication efficient and easy. Our work is focused on innovation and solutions and we have a lot of fun doing it. Even our newest team members have fit into our caster family perfectly, which is really key.
Q. If you could be any Blickle wheel, which would you be?
A. I would have to say that I am most like the ALB series. With the easiest going tread built on top of my strong core of industry knowledge, I love a challenging application.
Q. When visiting our Headquarters in Germany, what do you look forward to?
A. I really enjoy going out into the plant and seeing all of the automation at our Headquarters in Rosenfeld. It is hard to not get lost in the expansive facility, appreciating the logistic center and the transporting of parts from one location to another. When the work day is over, I am more than excited to get to a small local restaurant for some German food and beer!
