In September 2017, Lucy joined the programme and successfully completed it after two years of training. Afterwards, she had the opportunity to stay with Krones and has since then been part of the East Africa department. She specialised in the field of inspection technology. “I come from a city that is three hours away from Nairobi. Since I’ve always had an interest in what I’m doing right now, it was clear to me that I would take the step and move to Nairobi to follow my dream career,” explains Lucy.

At the beginning of 2022, Lucy has been in Germany for one month of machine training at the Krones headquarter in Neutraubling, near Regensburg. It was her fourth time in Germany since 2019, so the Kenyan already knows the city quite well. “I really like Regensburg, but I prefer it during summer and autumn, although seeing snow was an amazing experience, which I wouldn’t have had if I hadn’t been travelling for work,” she explains. She is also a great fan of the Bavarian kitchen, especially of white sausage. “I could eat it all day, every day,” she laughs.
In general, her job takes her to different places around the world. Most of her customers are located in Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Ruanda, Burundi and Congo. And when other Krones subsidiaries need support, Lucy and her colleagues help out there as well.
