Guillaume Mechanical Expert
I started my career at the company thanks to a real stroke of luck ! In fact, to earn my engineering degree, I took an intensive English course to get my TOEIC certificate with a friend. I was with him when he received a phone call from the executive director of the company, who told him that he had been put on a permanent contract. He seized the opportunity to talk about me. A few hours later, I met with Olivier REMINI, the President of FORTIL, and the following Monday, my contract was signed !
I started as a mechanical Consultant. My first task was welding quality control and NDT. Later, I worked for a multitude of projects, both as a service provider and internally at the Design Office. These experiences helped me evolve and allowed me to become an Expert in mechanics.
From a technical perspective, I discovered rare manufacturing processes used around the world (giant forge / fluidisation / how a nuclear boiler works / image processing by camera), and currently, I work at the Charles de Gaulle site, where I am responsible for the compliance of the operations performed on the boiler rooms in the building. At the same time, I am also responsible for a small customer portfolio to bring business to the design office. In fact, I am about to become a Practice Manager.
Success in this business can be described in two words : "Adaptation" and "Communication". One day, my cell phone rang at 4:00 in the morning... Olivier REMINI, who was in China with the mould maker for the SL-ONE boat motor, asked me if I could continue the meeting and explain the difference between thermoforming and plastic injection... I can tell you that when you're half asleep and you have to have a conversation in English / Chinese at 4:00 in the morning, internet translators are a big help ! It's these kinds of anecdotes that make my experience at FORTIL an adventure like no other !
