My story at LEONI

My name is Yanpei Li, and I work in the Low-Voltage Wiring Harness Product Department at the R&D center of Langfang LEONI. I began my journey with Langfang LEONI in April 2019, contributing to the company's endeavors since then. Initially, from 2019 to 2022, my primary focus was on managing the low-voltage wiring harness business for Mercedes-Benz. In late 2019, I traveled to Germany for plausibility check training, facilitating the introduction of the V213 project and subsequent business to Langfang.

Throughout 2020, amidst my regular duties, I diligently managed epidemic prevention and control measures assigned by the company, ensuring successful task completion. In 2021, my responsibilities extended to overseeing the performance testing of domestic Ethernet products, client coordination, and trial installations, all pivotal in the successful implementation of Langfang LEONI's homemade Ethernet for production.

Since 2022, I have spearheaded technical exchanges for bidding on new projects. Towards the end of 2022, I secured the Harp project through dedicated efforts, advancing resident technology and fostering the growth of new business opportunities. I take pride in being part of the innovative research and development endeavors at Langfang LEONI.

My job

In essence, our role entails elucidating the technical specifications of products manufactured by Langfang LEONI and facilitating communication and coordination with clients. Whether it's overseeing frontline development within the factory or managing R&D projects, we consistently uphold the technical standards. Acting as a conduit between the factory and clients, we ensure accurate transmission of customer requirements and resolution of production challenges. It's our steadfast commitment to develop products aligning with LEONI's production processes. Additionally, we find excitement in actively pursuing new business opportunities by providing technical support during bidding processes.

My highlights

On the morning of December 26th, 2022, our team received the exhilarating news of our successful bid for the Harp project. This marked a significant milestone for our research and development department, as our capabilities were recognized through several rounds of technical exchanges with the client. Tears of joy were shed as we celebrated this achievement.

Being the first customer of Langfang LEONI, we understand that opportunities and challenges often come hand in hand. On January 2, 2023, our team embarked on the journey to the client's factory. We encountered various difficulties, faced tight deadlines, and grappled with heavy workloads, often necessitating overtime. Despite these challenges, not a single complaint was heard within the team; instead, we forged ahead together, tackling one obstacle after another.

This experience is truly unforgettable for me personally. As a member of LEONI, I take immense pride in our collective efforts and the embodiment of the ultimate LEONI spirit.

My view of LEONI as an employer

My first encounter with LEONI was at an industry exhibition several years ago. The meticulously designed and expertly manufactured engine wiring harnesses immediately caught my attention and left a lasting impression. Interacting with LEONI colleagues during work engagements further solidified my admiration for their professionalism and dedication, sparking a strong desire to be a part of the team.

Fortunately, I had the opportunity to join LEONI later on. The company's robust development platform and abundant business opportunities provided me with ample space to showcase my skills, leading to a sense of fulfillment in my work. Additionally, the collaborative and supportive environment fostered friendly cooperation between leaders and teams, enhancing my overall work experience.

One of the remarkable aspects of Langfang LEONI is our genuine unity, where we prioritize teamwork over individual competition. We stand united in facing challenges, not only within our respective teams but also across the entire department. This sense of solidarity is invaluable to me, as it fosters a supportive work environment where the word 'team' holds true significance.

In our workplace, individuals readily offer their professional knowledge, advice, and support to one another. There's a collective commitment to fulfilling responsibilities without hesitation, ensuring that everyone contributes to our shared goals. The atmosphere of solidarity, particularly when confronting difficulties, makes Langfang LEONI feel like a second home to me.

LEONI in three words? Pragmatic, honest and united.
