“I had just come to Europe from Cuba. In my home country, I simply did not have the career opportunities that I have here. That is why I packed my bags and emigrated. I have been at Liebherr for more than twenty years now – how quick time flies! Looking back, I can say there have been a few changes since I started: Liebherr has grown and developed many new and interesting products.
But some things will probably never change. I am thinking of my great colleagues, who I have worked with all these years. Some have been with Liebherr for over 45 years already! Compared to them, I am still a kind of newbie. If I need help, my boss or my colleagues are there straight away and support me. I never feel like I am on my own at work. And we go out together after work, too. That made it much easier for me to settle in Europe. There is one person I have grown particularly close to: my best friend Norbert, who I have worked with for many years now. Cuba will always be my home, but here I have found a home away from home, where I feel just as comfortable and secure.”
