Meet Bright Yin – Director of Research and Development

Rheinmetall Automotive China Team

Welcome back to our feature “Meet our Team” where we introduce employees at Rheinmetall Automotive China and their personal Rheinmetall Automotive story.

Today, Bright Yin, Director of Research and Development (R&D), talks about the challenges the R&D team faces, what makes the team different from other teams he has worked with, and why his goal is to come to work with a smile, every day.

Research and Development – A daily challenge

My name is Bright Yin and I am the Director of Research and Development at Pierburg in Kunshan. I am responsible for a cross divisional team of project management, design, application as well as simulation and testing. We are confronted with different challenges every day, from new products, projects and applications to new requirements from our customers. However, with our expertise, confidence and passion for our products, we always find a solution. With our latest testing techniques, introduced from Germany, we are able to offer our Chinese customers faster feedback. In the past, it took us about four to six weeks, as we had to return the samples to Germany for testing. Now it will only take us one or two weeks to do the pre-check and give customers initial feedback. That has been a very positive signal, not only for my team and for our employees here in Kunshan, but also for our customers.

Rheinmetall Automotive – a growing business in China

When I first joined in 2012, Rheinmetall Automotive had only started local production at Kunshan plant. I have very exciting memories of that time because the team grew a lot, parallel to our site: Now we have equipped over 16 production lines and we successfully established our business.

Not only a company, but a family

I am still surprised by our people’s great passion for their work and dedication to our company. Once we had an urgent case for testing with a tight deadline from our customer, which meant that one of our test engineers had to work overtime if we did not want to hire an outside testing agency at extra costs. To my surprise, the test engineer volunteered to do the overtime to save the additional costs. That showed to me that our employees really think of our company as their own and treat it like their family business.

Our employees are the heart of the company

Our teamwork is very good. Colleagues share their knowledge and this way the whole team can work more efficiently. Everybody is very open-minded, task-oriented and takes on their responsibilities. At the same time, we are a very humorous bunch. All my employees know our products very well and their communication skills are very good. The most important thing when they face the customer, though, is that they are not alone. The whole team backs them up, not only counting our Chinese colleagues, but also our German colleagues. Outside of work, we also maintain personal contact. My family lives close to some of my colleagues’ families, and we can help each other to take care of our children. I am very proud of this unique team atmosphere and it is my goal that everyone comes to work with a smile. Because we spend the whole day together, a positive work environment is essential to make our employees feel comfortable during working hours.
