Production Manager for AUMA’s UK subsidiary, Jim Mills, has celebrated 25 years working for the manufacturer of modular electric actuators. Company growth over the last quarter century includes a tripling of AUMA Actuator Ltd’s workforce to a current total of 30 members of staff. With a strong engineering and technical college background, including an apprenticeship, Jim progressed from sales/contract duties at AUMA UK to responsibility for implementation of a Quality Management system in 1993. Developing work practices and procedures for the company’s quality system have been pivotal to Jim’s career and resulted in AUMA UK achieving BS 5750: he remains keenly interested in quality matters and is responsible for the company retaining its various approvals, which are now to ISO 9001:2008. In his current role, Jim oversees all production activities including actuator build and sub assembly at AUMA UK’s new premises in the South West of England.
