Meet the two newest members of our Laundrynerd-family: Henrik and Benjamin!
Henrik Østergaard Pedersen is 34 years old and started at Inwatec’s project department in mechanical construction at the beginning of April 2018.
Originally, Henrik grew up near Viborg, in Midtjylland, Denmark. He worked at JENSEN Denmark for the last two and a half years in mechanical construction and now joined our team at Inwatec in Odense. Currently, during his first days, he is getting to know the product portfolio by reviewing recent big projects for laundries all around the world.
Henrik took his education as a ‘produktionsteknolog’ and ‘teknisk designer’, a production technician and technical designer. Before Henrik started the position in mechanical construction at JENSEN Denmark in Bornholm, he worked at Steens Furniture in product development.
At Jensen Denmark, Henrik also got to know more about Inwatec, as on January 1, 2018, JENSEN-GROUP, one of the world’s leading companies in the laundry industry, acquired 30% of the ownership of Inwatec ApS. Read more about it here.
With Henrik’s knowledge about the laundry business and his motivation, he is a real Laundrynerd from the beginning – a perfect match for Inwatec!
“So far, it has been great to work here. Everyone is very kind, helpful and easy going”, Henrik describes his first days at the office of Inwatec. “I am looking forward to getting assigned to a project and to be more introduced to the system.”
In his spare time, Henrik enjoys spending time with his family, cooking and playing music.
Welcome to Inwatec, Henrik. We are glad to have you on our team!
Benjamin Ejlebæk Enggaard, 21 years old, joined our workshop team as a student worker after Easter 2018. However, until his studies in engineering begin in September, he will support our workshop team full time.
Benjamin lives on a farm called Billeholm, which is located between the cities of Odense and Assens. He has been working on his father’s farm ‘ever since he could walk’, where he also extensively worked with farm machinery. Benjamin finished high school in summer of 2016 and afterwards traveled and did his conscription as a firefighter in the Danish civil protection. He also assisted in a car workshop for some time. Now, Benjamin aimed to gather relevant professional experience before he starts to study in the next winter semester and also wishes to continue working at Inwatec during his education.
Benjamin is currently supporting the workshop team on assembling five VORTEX mat rollers: “I have been doing service on farm machines of different kinds, but assembling new machines is new to me. It’s loads of fun though – kind of LEGO for adults”, Benjamin explains.
“Everyone is very kind to me. There is a very positive vibe at Inwatec, so though getting up at 5:20 am to start work at 6 is kind of rough, I’m looking very much forward to every working day.”
In his free time, Benjamin works on his father’s farm, likes to go hunting in fall and winter and is a great fan of Formula 1. When the Formula 1 season begins, he tries to follow the races closely.
In future, Benjamin wishes to also help to develop the machines. He is especially happy to be part of a “new, modern and fast growing company”.
That is great to hear, Benjamin. Welcome to the Laundrynerds!
