In 1990 when You Qing arrived looking for a job at Teltherm, he was ‘fresh off the boat’ from China and could not speak a word of English. He had an Industrial instrumentation Degree from Shanghai University of Engineering and was willing to sweep the floor to get ‘a foot in the door’.
You Qing (pronounced U Ching) had a work permit for a year and within that year learnt so much, so fast that Teltherm pulled every string they could to get him permanent residency. Now, more than two decades later, You Qing may struggle with his English on occasions but he has the confidence to make his point, teach, train and help others.
You Qing is skilled in every facet of manufacturing and production. He is Production Team Leader for manufacturing and also skilled in all facets of calibration in the laboratory - his work ethic is stunning.
He and Chinese wife Jane, enjoy their spare time with their two kiwi/Chinese children. You Qing is also skilled at DIY home renovations and loves to return to China regularly to catch up with his family.
