As part of the Erasmus+ programme, Manuel Gallego is doing his three-month internship abroad with us. Manuel Gallego comes from Era Alta, a small town on the outskirts of Murcia in Spain, where he is studying automation and industrial robotics.
"I became aware of focus through the company's homepage because it works in exactly those areas that I am dealing with during my studies: IT and automation technology. New technologies have always fascinated me and I have already worked with Tia Portal and Step7. Through my internship at focus, I can further expand my knowledge. For example, I learn how to work professionally with WinCC and the IO-Link. Currently I am writing a program for a demonstration station with IO-Link connection".
Mr. Gallego particularly likes the working atmosphere: "I was warmly welcomed into the team and am supported by everyone. We communicate in English and I notice how quickly my language skills improve. I also find it exciting to get to know a foreign culture, different working methods and new ways of thinking. I'm sure this will pay off in my future career."
The ERASMUS programme is a support programme of the European Union and has been in existence for 30 years. It was founded with the aim of promoting learning mobility and transnational cooperation. The Erasmus exchange programme enables students to complete a three- to 12-month internship in 33 EU countries.

Systematic safety: This is one of our most important corporate goals and encompasses both occupational safety and health protection. Through a continuous improvement process, we aim to continuously and permanently reduce the number of occupational accidents, occupational diseases and work-related health procedures.
In order to live up to this claim, all internal occupational health and safety management measures were again voluntarily subjected to an audit by BGHW (Berufsgenossenschaft Handel und Warenlogistik).
We are very pleased about the successful recertification and the award of the "Sicher mit System" seal of quality for another three years.
We have expanded our social media presence and are now also active on Instagram. If you want to follow us, you can find our profile under the following link: https://www.instagram.com/focus_ia/
The support of the local associations is particularly close to our hearts. Therefore we have renounced also in this year again without Christmas gifts and made the money available instead to non-profit associations.
In this year the association Lichtblicke Rennerod e. V. as well as the Turnverein 1901 Rennerod e. V. and the DLRG Westerburg e. V. could be pleased about 1000 Euro each.
At this point once again many thanks for the great honorary work!
