Women have important roles at Techenomics
With women occupying a number of key technical, administrative and supervisory roles in Techenomics International, the provider of fluid management services is determined to create more opportunities for woman to advance within the company. This commitment extends to encouraging women to apply for positions to assist the company’s ongoing growth.
Techenomics’ CEO Chris Adsett says women have played an important role in establishing the company, particularly in the emerging markets of Indonesia and Mongolia.
In Indonesia among the talented and dedicated women who have seen the subsidiary PT Tekenomiks Indonesia become an established and growing business are Siti, Eka and Erna.
Area Manager Siti Munawarah is based in Batam and as well as being personal assistant to the CEO, assists with business development and sales throughout the company, and is regularly on secondment to regional offices.
Group Technology Manager Eka Karmila is based in Balikpapan and is responsible for managing the group’s quality control for ISO accreditation, new testing procedures and laboratory equipment.
Operations Manager, Laboratories W Ernaningsih (Erna) is based in Sangatta and is responsible for management of group laboratories in Balikpapan, Sangatta and Banjarmasin.
Other women involved with PT Tekenomiks in management roles are financial manager Soepiyana Deden, lab manager Ita Saronika Bulang and safety officer Darna.
Techenomics’ country manager in Mongolia, Sugraa, is also playing an important role in the company’s development by assisting the Australian team fine tune their operational management and formulate a detailed marketing strategy to help boost the Australian business.
“We are experiencing growth across our markets, and particularly in Asia, and are proud of the integral role that our talented and committed female employees are playing in this process,” Chris Adsett says.
“Without their input we would not be in the position we are today as an innovative and industry-leading independent provider of total fluid management solutions.”
As such, he says Techenomics welcomes the commitment of Austmine and METS Ignited to improve gender diversity in the mining, equipment, technology and services (METS) sector through a new Women in STEM: METS Career Pathway Program, which will support and promote women in science, technology engineering and maths (STEM).
Chris Adsett says the pilot program will connect METS companies and universities to help foster stronger linkages between female STEM students and a METS career.
“Techenomics is excited by the opportunities that this program will create for talented women and believe that it will help METS companies, such as Techenomics, meet the changing needs of the mining industry into the future.”
He says the Techenomics’ team is committed to enhancing the lubricant analysis and condition monitoring services that are the mainstay of the company as well as developing new business, which includes new products and technology that benefit customers by enabling lubricants to perform better for longer.
“The women at Techenomics are among those leading the charge in this regard and I am sure that they will continue to do so,” he adds. “We will utilise and participate in programs such as Women in STEM to ensure that the company stays ahead of the bunch.”
