    'position you have' and 'carry out' in this context?

    Hi,
    I have a question. Is it grammatically correct to use 'position you have' and 'carry out' in this context?

    I read your advertisement, and I am very much interested in the position you have turner.
    I am 40 years old. I currently work in the position turner in Germany and I am looking for job on the abroad. Actually, I am producing machinery parts in the food sector and I carry out their regeneration. I completed my education in the profession of manual turner and then I completed Technical Secondary School as mechanics technician.

    Thank you in advance for your reply.

    'Regenerate' might not be the word you want. In English, the word is normally used for organic entities - eg. a lizard can regenerate a tail if it's cut off. "The virus managed to regenerate after we thought we'd destroyed it."
    Here are some examples:

    Do you mean you do repairs, maintenance, replacements, modifications ...?

    I mean refurbishment, repairs.

    Why not simply say 'carry out parts production'?

    According to dictionaries, 'refurbishment' usually applies to buildings or rooms rather than machinery parts, so I think 'repairs' is more suitable.

    In the present job, I produce parts for machinery used in the food sector, and I carry out maintenance on such parts.
