“Mine is a dynamic job,” Javier Villanueva says. “It keeps me active, alert and contributing to a pleasant working environment.” As pitch impregnation operator in Pamplona, Javier ensures the electrode impregnation process complies with GrafTech’s high safety standards and exacting quality control parameters. But he also helps the company continue pushing the technological envelope of electrode graphite manufacturing. “In addition to monitoring that everything works correctly,” the eight-year GrafTech veteran says, “we’re encouraged to deliver new ideas and initiatives that can help constantly improve our process.”
