We invite you all backstage and introduce the people behind our microplate readers. Today: He takes care that your microplate reader gets properly and safely packed and shipped. Meet Niko, one of the most recent additions to the BMG LABTECH family.

My name is Niko, I am 26 years old and live in Gengenbach, Germany. I am a trained warehouse logistics specialist. Previously, I worked for a packaging manufacturer. I joined the BMG LABTECH family in 2019. In my spare time, I enjoy doing sports like tennis, football and basketball. I am also quite fond of photography and like to spend time with family and friends.

 

What does your job entail?  

I work in logistics both inbound and outbound. This mainly means that I take care of the goods that are delivered to us, including counting, weighing, measuring and booking in the system, as well as of the microplate readers that are shipped to our customers.


What do you like most about your job?   
What I like most about my job is that the day is quite varied ... There is no planned day.


If you could write your own job title that best describes what you do here, what would it be?
If I were to describe myself in my job, then I would be the “haven of calm”.


What are the values that drive you? 
Teamwork, friendliness, determination.


What do you like most about BMG LABTECH? 
That all employees are on an equal footing.


What’s a fun fact about you many people may not know?  
I attended the Greek school in Offenburg for ten years and I learned to read and write in Greek.

Where’s your favourite place in the world? 
My favourite place is of course my second home, Evia in Greece, where my relatives live.
If I weren't so damn good at my job, I'd probably….
Open a bar in Greece and sell ouzo.


What’s the best advice you have ever been given?
My 102-year-old great grandpa told me the wisdom of my life, but I'm not allowed to tell it…


Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?  
I would swap places with George Michael for a day to prevent the song "Last Christmas".
