Going from a frontline worker to a technical expert in the company and earning recognition as an Excellent Migrant Worker of Nanjing, an Excellent Migrant Worker in China and now as an elected delegate to the 19th CPC National Congress, the growth path of Wang Lei, head of the polarizer unit of LG Chem Information Electronic Materials Co., Ltd., is a vivid reflection of the times.

Wang was born in 1981 to a common farmer's family in Kongtian village, Jing'an township, Qixia district of Nanjing. After she graduated from high school in 2004, she came to work at LG Chem, located in the Nanjing Economic Development Zone. The polarizers produced by LG Chem have a majority share in the domestic market, and Wang Lei, part of this production process for 13 years, has it at her fingertips.

At first, Wang worked in the polarizer inspection room, where she had to separate substandard units from hundreds every day. In those days, there was a large multitude of nonconformities, and to make sure that no inferior product will leave the factory, the inspector needs to know which one is problematic at a glance. At that time, Wang Lei rested only one hour every day, and would practice in the workshop nonstop, taking breaks for eating. After sitting for nearly nine hours, her back and shoulders ached. The second month, her workload increased from 400-plus to 600-plus pieces, and she was qualified as an inspector. After that, she was selected as excellent employee many times and promoted to group leader and squad leader over time.

As a managerial staff, Wang often operates the machine herself to "stay in shape", apart from guiding and supervising other workers in safe operation. In the skill contest organized by the company, Wang Lei was among the top even when competing with frontline workers. “Competent and warm-hearted”, that's how most coworkers discuss her.

As a foreign company, LG Chem has done a great job in Party building. It has more than 200 Party members and six Party branches at the moment, and Wang Lei is one of the model Party members. In July, she was elected as a delegate to the 19th CPC National Congress, and to more accurately air the voices from the grassroots she spent more than two months visiting employees in her company and other firms nearby in order to better understand their need.
