From laundry to laundry machine supply
At the beginning of August, our team gained another strong support with Jens Plesner Nissen (39 years old) who took on a newly created position as Project Sales Engineer. Together with our customers, he takes a closer look at their laundry work environments aiming to find the best design and placement for our machines or systems to deliver the best possible and most efficient laundry processes and results.
In his spare time, Jens has a passion for hunting and everything related. Whenever there is time he takes his dog and spends time in the forests of Denmark or Sweden. Now it is his own dog only, but he also used to train German Shepherds a couple of years ago.
Originally Jens comes from Billund where he started his career as an automation engineer at the Lego factory. He then decided to move to Svendborg, where he still lives today, to study Marine Engineering. Next to University he started working at the laundry group DFD Odense where he ended up working for almost 8 years in a management position. One of his tasks was the design and installation of garment dispensers. It was during his time at DFD Odense where he first got in touch with Inwatec machines that were ordered by the company.
“I knew Inwatec from my time in the Laundry business. We purchased machinery from Inwatec, and occasionally supplied Inwatec with material for testing, e.g. mixed garments, mats, etc.”
Before he switched from working with laundry to now selling Inwatec’s laundry machines he worked as a Department Manager in the production of MHI Vestas in Lindø. In his management position there he was responsible for up to 70 employees producing the hub for the 9MW Offshore wind turbine.
Away from the Offshore business towards customer contact, project work and design after a month at Inwatec Jens says:
“This is a new position and challenge for me. I am really looking forward to work with all the super-competent people here. It is stimulatory to work in a team of specialists. I also look forward to meeting our customers. I think the laundry business is a very interesting business. There is a lot of dirty and arduous work out there, and Inwatec has some very good solutions to eliminate it, and save money for our customers.”
Welcome Jens, we are delighted to have you on the team!
