Sébastien, Maintenance Team Leader, X-FAB France

As maintenance team leader, Sébastien and his team support the production teams by ensuring availability and good performance of equipments to enable a smooth manufacturing process.

Sébastien’s role at X-FAB is another example of what working at X-FAB is like: working in shifts with colleagues from different areas in the fab, whether they are equipment engineers, process engineers or external experts: every day (and night!) is bringing new challenges.

Sébastien is working as a maintenance team leader at our location in France, Corbeil-Essonnes, 30 km south of Paris.

He joined the X-FABulous team five years ago, but knows the fab inside out as he started on site as an apprentice and then worked for one of X-FAB’s subcontractors for almost 30 years. He is responsible for the preventive and corrective maintenance of equipment, working in a demanding clean room environment and he is also an expert in troubleshooting and equipment enhancement .

He describes himself as someone who first of all wants to take care of his team: “A team that feels accounted for, a team that feels recognized, is a team that will always be ready to support colleagues and therefore the company”.

Always believe in yourself, always do your best and most important: do not hesitate to ask questions.

What does a healthy work-life-balance mean for you? 

My earrings, my rings, my tatoos, my haircut: all of these signs that are part of my personality are either removed or hidden under my cleanroom outfit during my working hours but still, I remain the same and can be myself whether it’s during the breaks with my colleagues, at home with my family or with my Harley Davidson® fan friends over the weekend! I can stay true to myself and this really matters to me.
