Women's History Month: Rose Tu

Published 03/16/2023

In honor of Women’s History month, Americhem would like to spotlight our team members that have achieved great success throughout their manufacturing careers!


Our next spotlight comes from Rose Tu, Commercial Director at our Suzhou, China (SKG) facility.


Rose was so kind to answer some questions about her experience and career in manufacturing.


1. How long have you worked in a manufacturing environment?

I’ve spent 20 years in a manufacturing environment.

2. Who or what inspired you to choose a career in manufacturing?

My subject is mechanotronics. I am very interested in the whole manufacturing process, from raw materials to finished products, achieving quality in stability and innovation in change. I grew up in my father’s factory, I think manufacturing is my destiny.

3. Why did you choose Americhem and how long have you been a part of the team?

I was very interested in consultant/technical sales. At that time, Americhem was recruiting a technical sales manager for APAC. In the past 14 years, I have gone from technical sales manager, commercial and marketing manager to Commercial Director, APAC, Masterbatch & Additives.

4. What’s the best advice you can give to someone who is just starting out in manufacturing?

My son has just started his manufacturing career at the Tesla Berlin factory. What we communicate most is, try to focus on technical learning, understand what the highest level in the world in your industry is, often think about the possibility of innovation from the perspective of new entrants and try to communicate with more people.

5. What is your biggest accomplishment while working in manufacturing?  

This is a good question. Compared with the Financial and the Internet Industries, manufacturing is not a fast-growing industry, but my team and I always keep exploring and learning from the outside world. Try to use the best models and methods of this era to improve ourselves, optimize ourselves, and work intelligently. When you contribute to your life, you can better deliver contributions to the organization.


Thank you, Rose for all of your hard work and dedication!
