Our workshop team has grown bigger again – we are happy to have Jesper (28) and Thomas (20) on board since August 1st! Jesper supports us as an electrician and Thomas does an apprenticeship as an automation engineer.
Jesper – Electrician
Jesper Lolk is 28 years old and grew up in Ringe, a town close to Odense on the island Funen.
Originally, Jesper was educated to be a ‘house electrician’. However, directly after receiving his diploma, he already started working as an ‘industrial traveling electrician’. In the past years, Jesper mostly worked in the food industry. There, he built various transportation systems for large-scale industrial butchering.
Much of his experience from his previous jobs helps Jesper to perform great work at Inwatec from the beginning as well.
Now, having worked as an electrician at Inwatec for a couple of weeks, Jesper sums up: “So far, most interesting for me has been getting to know Inwatec’s machines, experiencing how they are built, and seeing how much the machines are optimized all the time.”
“I like it very much. At Inwatec, there is a different work environment than I am used to, which is a very positive aspect of my work here. I am really looking forward to being a fully grown Laundrynerd soon and have many good experiences with Inwatec in future as well!”
In his spare time, Jesper likes to work and tinker with computers, including building and disassembling them. When the weather is good, he also enjoys going fishing.
Thomas – Automation Technician Apprentice
Thomas Johannes Mortensen is 20 years old, grew up in Svendborg, and recently joined Inwatec for his apprenticeship as an Automation Technician.
In the first half of 2018, Thomas completed a theoretical ‘basic education’ of 20 weeks, in which he gathered first relevant knowledge by performing experiments, creating technical drawings and writing reports. Now, he will be working at Inwatec’s workshop for approximately six months before he goes back to school again. In total, the education as an Automation Technician takes 3 to 3.5 years and consists of both theoretical and practical training.
Thomas appreciates the tasks at Inwatec being more applied and advanced, compared to the first part of his vocational education.
“In school, we did a lot of basic stuff, but here it is more complicated and with a purpose”, Thomas describes. “I am looking forward to learning, be on a team and do what I like – working with robots and machines.”
We are proud that with Thomas, we have a second Automation Technician apprentice on our team. Also, we are very glad to hear that Thomas likes working at Inwatec: “It is the best place I can imagine. I can’t wait to work with the machines even more.”
In his free time, Thomas likes to be with his friends and family and he is further interested in gymnastics.
