Since joining DENSO, Andrea Caratti, from Northern Italy, has been able to cross off many major cities in the United States from his travel bucket list; Chicago, Washington DC, and New York City to name a few. After recently accepting a new role, Caratti is venturing further into the U.S. as Plant Manager of DENSO Manufacturing Michigan Iowa (DMIA).
Caratti started his career with DENSO six years ago at DENSO Thermal Systems S.p.A. (DNTS) in Italy. DNTS is a part of DENSO TEC, the Thermal Europe Center. As the Logistics Manager, he enjoyed getting to work with many of DENSO’s customers within the Off Road Special Applications Business Unit (ORSA). This group makes parts for bigger, off-highway customers, like John Deere. In his new role at DMIA, he will continue working with these customers.
Caratti came to DENSO with a master’s degree in automotive engineering and work experience at Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan.
Caratti said he is looking forward to the new challenge.
“I’m very thankful for it, and know that we will all do a great job together,” Caratti said.
One element Caratti said he’s not looking forward to is winter. His favorite hobby, outdoor cycling, will have to wait until spring returns to Iowa.
Caratti has enjoyed seeing new perspectives of the company, and said he looks forward to continuing to interact with other DENSO plants.
Congratulations on your new role at DENSO!Tags: Manufacturing
