Why not meet some of our people and see why they have chosen to work for Servomex? 

Meet The Team

People sat at conference table

Why did you choose to join Servomex?

I chose to join Servomex due to a combination of how the company was being sold to me by the Talent Acquisition team and the Finance department representatives during the interview process.  The opportunity to work for a global market-leading company was too good to resist.

What is a typical day for you?

A typical day for me usually involves circulating reports which track order and sales performance towards goals and answering requests from various areas of the business for financial information to support decision-making. There can also be meetings to attend if providing support to a project team or involved in other initiatives. Being a member of the finance department also means there is always administrative work to be completed and reporting deadlines to be achieved at month end.

How would you describe the culture of Servomex?

Servomex is a progressive, forward-thinking company, whilst being inclusive and maintaining a high degree of transparency. I feel the company strikes the right balance of nurturing employees while allowing them autonomy in their decision-making.

David Greenwood
EMEA Financial Controller

Why did you choose to join Servomex?

I used to work for a major company in the industry. I could not understand why I lost jobs to Servomex. Out of truth and honesty, I joined Servomex out of curiosity to seek the truth of Servomex’s success in the business.

What is a typical day for you?

A typical work day is always filled with multiple interactions with co-workers from various functions to seek the best solutions and proposals for our customers and partners. It is always fun and exciting!

How long have you worked for Servomex, and what is your proudest moment?

This is my 10th year with Servomex. The proudest moments are the daily moments when you see everyone in the local team, in the regional team, in the factories work together closely as a team to serve our customers.

Chee Wee Yap
Sales Manager-Asia

Why did you choose to join Servomex?

I’ve had the privilege of working with numerous mech engineers from varying backgrounds and they have worked through the decades at Servomex. They have always said it’s very interesting engineering and it’s always moving forward in innovation. It hasn’t disappointed; since joining I have had an introduction to quantum mechanics, lasers, and various areas of engineering and science that I wouldn’t have had the chance to broaden my knowledge about and be challenged by if I had gone elsewhere. I’m very grateful for the opportunity.

What is a typical day for you?

Most importantly, a coffee first thing! Always good to have a quick morning chat with your colleagues too. Then it’s onto the design work. Currently I’m supporting various products and manufacturing projects and use mainly our CAD package Solidworks to produce 3D and 2D data. During the day there may be some meetings, general discussions or a priority task that crops up. One of my projects is in the clean room, so it’s nice to get onto the production floor and be involved on the lines and work alongside other departments. As I’m new there’s always a bit of light reading or engineering know-how that I keep up to date with.

How would you describe the culture of Servomex?

Very friendly and professional. I’ve been supported by management and my colleagues with them taking time out of their schedule to help me. In my department I can sense that I’m surrounded by people who care about Servomex and being the front-runner in our field. As I have a 9-month-old son, there is clear emphasis on a work-life balance, and the flexible hours mean I get to see my son Reuben more in the working week.

Senior Talent Acquisition Resourcer

I was tentatively searching for a new challenge in recruitment when I came across the advert for my ‘now’ job.  The advert caught my eye as I loved the fact that the opportunity was newly created – and that Servomex were looking to employ someone who proactively focused on finding talent to join the company globally. During my selection process, I learnt more about Servomex’s vision – and the fact that the company prides itself in looking after the welfare of its employees. This appealed to me very much. Working in recruitment, it is vital that I feel truly passionate about the employer and brand that I am representing. I felt a very positive vibe from the first contact I had from Servomex.

What is a typical day for you?

I can be Skyping a candidate in China one minute, organizing interviews in the UKTC the next; the same morning I can be approaching a targeted candidate, editing job descriptions, shortlisting CVs or speaking to university teams about their courses and students. I work closely with my colleagues in the Talent Acquisition team to ensure recruitment policies and processes are compliant and efficient, and that we are offering candidates and colleagues a first-class recruitment experience.

How would you describe the culture of Servomex?

I feel there is a culture of pride and determination to get the job done well.  I really like the fact that we have employees who have been with the company for many, many years and their knowledge and expertise are clearly invaluable. Yet in the same breath, I feel ideas from new colleagues are not only valued but encouraged and welcomed. In more recent times specifically, I have felt a huge sense of pride working for an employer that is truly committed to supporting our customers in the medical industries during these most challenging of circumstances. The sense of team spirit and culture of pride and determination is more important than ever – and I am humbled to support these teams as best I can.

Why attracted you to Servomex?

The world’s best paramagnetic analyzer attracted me to join SERVOMEX. In the nearly twenty years served in Servomex, I fully feel its continuous exploration of advanced technology and persistent pursuit in new product & application.

How has your career developed at Servomex?

During my 20 years in SERVOMEX, from being a technical support engineer and system integration manager to my current role as business development manager, I am grateful that SERVOMEX gave me the opportunities to develop and the space & support to constantly challenge myself to do the best.

How would you describe the culture of Servomex?

SERVOMEX’s zero tolerance for ethical violations and encouragement to speak up makes me feel more secure. At the same time, open and transparent information transmission enables employees to understand the current situation and future development direction of the company, which greatly improves work efficiency and enthusiasm.

HuiYu Guan
Business Development Manager, IP&E China
Service Team looking at analyzer

What attracted you to Servomex?

I had heard a lot about Servomex even before I joined the company. People say Servomex is like the Rolls-Royce of the gas analyzer market with a very high reputation, so I was curious to know what makes this company so special. When I was offered the opportunity, I decided to join without any hesitation.

How would you describe your role and responsibilities to your family and friends?

I want to prove to them that in one’s life, making a right decision, working hard, trying to make a difference is important and the rewards will follow naturally. They all feel proud, as do I, that I work for a great company.

What is your biggest achievement in your career at Servomex?

As a Sales Manager, in charge of IP&E China business, in my view, my biggest achievement is not winning a big order, or winning a landmark order. It is that I build a more stable and qualified sales team and create a working atmosphere among team members where everyone feels they belong and believes they can make a difference.  We are young and passionate, and together we are driving the business growth in this market with high potential.

Jason Shi
China Sales Manager - IP&E

Why did you choose Servomex?

I could tell from my first visit to Servomex that the Company offered a very flexible working environment and gave me the opportunity to predominantly work from home, which at the time was unusual. The role offered gave me the scope to be able to make it my own, work proactively and make a difference to the business – a combination of things that I couldn’t say no to! The office environment appeared to be welcoming friendly and professional and although it is a global business it still felt like it had that family feel.

What is your favourite thing about your role

As the Health and Wellbeing Manager, I like the fact that I feel I can make a difference to employees in respect to both their wellbeing and mental health. Being a Mental Health First Aider is certainly a passion of mine and a role that I take very seriously – it’s a real privilege to be able to listen and support employees at a time when they most need it.  I like to be able to come up with new and interesting ways to promote Wellbeing and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging within the business through all sorts of different forms and Servomex gives me the opportunity to continually do this. This is a very rewarding role.

How would you describe Servomex to your friends and family?

Servomex has a culture of openness and understanding – where the top priority is the welfare of employees. With a diverse team of highly professional and dedicated employees around the globe there is a flexible culture, where employees are trusted to get the work done and do so to the highest of standards. This is a great place to work.

Julie Burridge
Health & Wellbeing Manager

What attracted you to Servomex?

I’ve worked at Servomex for the past four years. Servomex is a company that doesn’t stop and always tries to work in a challenging way that is progressive and forward-looking. I’m sure Servomex and I will be able to achieve greater success.

How would you describe your role and responsibilities to your family and friends?

My role is a Service Manager in Servomex. First, I would like to explain the business that Servomex is pursuing. Servomex is a company that makes devices that measure the gas required in semiconductors and in all industrial sites. I think it is a company that ethically competes fairly and makes a great contribution to society while doing this kind of work. I feel proud as a member of this company, and I think I am a person who fulfils customer needs and communicates well.

What is your biggest achievement in your career at Servomex?

Servomex is a global company. We communicate with employees from many countries around the world, overcome difficulties, and continue to take on other new challenges. As I work like this, I hear a lot of people’s thoughts, and I’m learning a lot from them. I think this is the biggest achievement of Servomex, and I want to continue to succeed more in Servomex by communicating with more Servomex employees and overcoming difficulties.

Why did you choose Servomex?

Having worked for fortune 500 companies in the past, Servomex was very interesting to me in that the company provides opportunity to learn many different areas of the business.  I also like the fact that employees are provided high visibility and an open-door policy with the Executive Team.  The family feeling within Servomex is also very refreshing and everyone is afforded the same opportunity across the globe.

What is your favourite thing about your role?

I have been given many opportunities since joining Servomex.  I started in the US as a Site Leader (General Manager equivalent in the US) and within a year was given the opportunity of a dual role as Head of Global Systems (Analytical Systems product line).  Being able to interact every day with teams in Europe, Middle East, China, Singapore, and India has been a great learning experience of different cultures and ways of working as well as generating some creative ideas for improvement.

How would you describe Servomex to your friends and family?

It is very rewarding to look forward to coming to work every day to interact with a great team.  Who knows what the day will bring.  There is always something new and challenging keeping the job exciting.  Even though my background is Manufacturing, I’ve been able to learn many other facets of the business providing a unique experience.
