“My name is Diogo Ferreira, I’m a spinning operator. My main function is to check on the spinning machine if there are any yarn breaks. I’m also in charge of minor cleanses in the spin weighting arms and supervising the transitions of fully loaded yarn cones. Besides that, after the cleaning team washes the machines, I help make sure the machinery is put into production mode. I like the fact that my job always keeps me moving around. I enjoy the responsibilities that come with my work, even when I have fewer assignments, I take the initiative and advance on other tasks, such as cleaning the work space. I really appreciate working with my colleagues.”
“My name is Bento Ferreira, I’m a Shift Supervisor. I work at the spinning stage of yarn production, and I’m in charge of conducting a pre and during-shift examination of the machines setting across the spinning line including carding, drafting, spinning frames, and winding, making sure everything is operational. I’m also responsible for supervising the group of people working in my shift. Besides that, I work together with my colleagues, especially if there is an essential process that requires more time and attention. I truly enjoy doing what I do and being able to do it with great people!”
“My name is Márcia Nogueira, I’m a yarn packing and weight operator. At Tearfil my work is crucial to assure that my shift operation requirements and needs are satisfied without any stops or failures. My job consists of doing a regular visual control of the winding and yarn quality, as well as packing and weighing yarn batches and also controlling stock of yarn supports (cones), pallets and spare packing cartons. I always try to give my best because I feel valued here. I enjoy working alongside my colleagues and I believe I can improve and grow in the long run in this factory.”
