Name: Afqad Arshad
Job Title: Engineering Manager
Department: Operations
Worked at ITL since: 2013

 

I joined ITL in 2013, initially as a Material Scientist before being promoted twice along the way to my current role as Engineering Manager. I am responsible for managing and coordinating business critical and business as usual production and manufacturing engineering projects. I focus on product lifecycles, process and system improvements, and cost efficiencies.

My role is essentially two-fold. Firstly, I manage the relationship between the UK Head office and our manufacturing facilities in China and Brazil. I am the first point of contact and escalation point for any manufacturing, supplier or technical issues related to our current, released products.

Secondly, I head-up the Production Engineering Team made up of electronic and mechanical engineers and material scientists to ensure new products are manufacturable from development to production. I guarantee our products are DFM (Designed for Manufacturing), DFT (Designed for Testing) and DFA (Designed for Assembly).
