HOMA Inside - High-bay storage facility

Jaroslaw Graf

has been working at HOMA since January 2015, and during this time is already familiar with a number of departments. As someone who entered and moved across the organisation, he started off in the dispatch department, then worked in the goods issuing department and as a fork-lift truck driver until an internal job advertisement attracted his interest: Jaroslaw Graf did an apprenticeship in warehouse logistics, and this was precisely the role which was to be newly set up in the high-bay storage facility. He has now been working in his ideal job for over a year and has already become a foreman.

My responsibilities at HOMA:

I am mainly working in the goods inwards and goods issuing areas, and in the stock management section of the high-bay warehouse. As a foreman, I co-ordinate tasks in various areas of the warehouse and interfaces within the company. These responsibilities include the acceptance, checking, correct intermediate storage and marking of the goods. Together with onward supply, order picking and storage optimisation.

Why I decided on HOMA:  

HOMA is a family company. I am a proud father myself and know how important it is to maintain values and mutual respect in a family. If this is lived out within a company, as with HOMA, all the employees gain by it. As well as that, the paths for decision-making are very short. After my job interview, it only took 3 days to receive the job offer, and it was less that two weeks to my first working day. That's something many other companies could learn from.

My personal highlight at HOMA:

At HOMA, you have the possibility of handing in improvement suggestions. The company benefits from the ideas of the employees, and you get a chance to help in designing your own workplace. For example, I really enjoy driving the fork-lift truck, and even take part in regional championships. One exercise in these championships is lifting and turning heavy objects with the fork-lift. This gave me an idea about turning our cable drums, weighing several tons, instead of rotating them with a fixed crane, as in the past. No sooner said than done. The idea was checked out in a short decision-making process and put into practice. I think it's great that every idea gets a hearing.

If I was a particular HOMA product, then I would like to be:

A HOMA flow generateor HRL. In the warehouse, we are the ones who get pump production moving, and ensure reliable and economic operations. That is why we have a high-bay store at HOMA to speed up the throughput. The faster we deliver material into production, the more our colleagues will have to sweat.
