Everyday Professional

Andy Süß at HEBO Aufzugstechnik GmbH

09.06.2021 — It’s a familiar scenario: the weekly shopping is done, now it just has to be taken upstairs to the apartment. You haul bag after bag up the many flights of stairs and ask yourself again why there is no elevator. What a great invention that is; you press a button and technology does the rest. And when it doesn’t, you call Andy Süß.

The 31-year-old has been working as a service and project manager at HEBO Aufzugstechnik, one of four business units of Dussmann Technical Solutions GmbH, since August 2020. In this role, he set up the new HEBO premises in Landshut, Bavaria. With a team of six fitters, he maintains the elevator systems of reputed clients from the automotive industry, public transport and building cooperatives in the region. Orders range from new construction projects to maintenance and repair of existing systems. 

Setting up new premises during the pandemic was possible, but nevertheless, an organizational tour de force. It began with virtual site inspections and culminated with employee training in compliance with regulations. After only half a year, the premises in Landshut were established, due to the energy invested in the project by Andy Süß and the full support of the team at Hallenberg company headquarters. 

The day-to-day work of a mechatronics technician is very varied: assigning tasks, preparing quotations, ordering materials, bookkeeping, leading construction meetings and much more. Andy Süß has to maintain an overview and act quickly and that is exactly what he loves about his job. If there is ever need, he is happy to throw on his overalls and help out. He enjoys practical work and it is a welcome change after working through the email inbox. 

Who would he like to get stuck in an elevator with? He has to think about that for a moment. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson would be interesting. But it should at least be someone who's neither hungry nor panicked, because “there's strength in calm”, says Andy Süß.
