Interview with Sonia Cornelusse, Operator at the Airware® casthouse in Issoire | Constellium
What do you like most about working for Constellium?
Since I joined the Airware® casthouse two years ago, I have enjoyed my projects and the fact that our team is as diverse as the tasks we have to accomplish. I am proud to work for a large industrial company where we produce high tech aluminium plates for prestigious customers such as Airbus or Bombardier.
What inspires you about working in manufacturing?
I take great pride in contributing to the production of aluminium plates, which requires extreme precision at every stage of the process. When we cast a new plate in one of our ovens, technical know-how is key for the quality of the final product and it makes me happy to imagine airplanes flying with the aluminium I participate in manufacturing.
What skills or past experiences do you think helped you become who you are at Constellium?
We cannot compromise on safety or quality, so I would say rigor and discipline are very important assets. Also, I used to work in teams in my previous jobs, which showed me that mutual support and leadership are necessary to succeed in such a versatile role.
