We are welcoming Kasper, Mads Emil and Claus to Inwatec this year. We are glad to have the three of you in our team!
Whenever a new employee starts at Inwatec, we shortly introduce them in an article like this. However, two of the three newest Laundrynerds are pretty familiar faces to most of the team. Read all about it below:
Kasper Simonsen, 31 years old, is Inwatec’s new project manager and started mid of December 2017. We met him on different job fairs and he talked to CEO Mads and HR Manager Sophie about possible positions for him at Inwatec. Then, in his summer holidays 2017, he worked in the workshop for a couple of weeks and already learned about Inwatec’s machines and met most of the team.
Kasper worked as an electrician for seven years and then did his Bachelor in Technology Management and Marine Engineering (BtecMan & MarEng). On the 12th of January, he officially finished this full-time degree and was graded with a 12, the highest grade in the Danish system!
“I have done a lot of projects in my time as an electrician. I mainly installed intruder alarms and surveillance cameras, but the contact with the customer and the process from getting the order to install it at the customer is very similar to the process at Inwatec.”
Currently, Kasper is working on a great linen storage with over 2 kilometers of conveyors for a Norwegian laundry. “It has been great to start working here, first of all because of the nice people at Inwatec but also because I already knew a lot of the co-workers before a started at the office”, Kasper explains. He further describes what he finds most interesting so far: “I think the technical part of the machines is very fascinating. It has always been great fun for me to look into things and see how things works. Also the process where you follow a project from the beginning to the end is really cool.”
Kasper lives in Odense with his girlfriend and his two kids. In his free time, Kasper spends much time with his family and likes to visit the Zoo or Legoland. In addition, he likes to run and to ride his mountain bike. When there is time, he also does spearfishing.
“I am looking forward to doing bigger projects. I hope, the customers will be happy about the machines and then see that they need more machines from Inwatec.”
Mads Emil Nielsen is 21 years old and started as an employee at Inwatec in the beginning of January 2018. Mads Emil lives from a small town called Tommerup St and took his education at ‘Schmidt & Øhrnstedt El- installation’.
“During my apprenticeship, I was primarily working on new and renewed electrical installations in houses and offices. I took the school semesters at DJH, ‘Den Jyske Håndværkerskole’ and finished my education in December 2017.” Mads Emil passed his education with the highest possible result, a 12.
In February 2017, already during his education, Mads Emil started to help out at Inwatec’s workshop as an external electrician. Very soon, it was his wish to work in an industrial electric environment. After Mads Emil finished his apprenticeship, we were glad to offer him a full-time position at Inwatecs workshop.
“I am very happy to be at Inwatec. Especially, because there is so much development going on. I am already looking forward to exciting new projects.”
Since January 2018, Mads Emil is fully employed as an electrician at Inwatec. Currently, Mads Emil is working on a series of five Hurricanes mat rollers which will be shipped to the USA.
“It is very nice to be part of the full development process of the machines: We start by having the blueprints, then we build it, make our own electrical cabinet and place it inside the machine, test the machine and finally install it at the customer’s plant. It is great to be part of all those steps!”
In Mads Emil’s spare time, he is a scout leader and spends much time in the nature, preferably with his girlfriend and friends.
Claus Klit Munksgaard is 49 years old and lives with his wife Mette and their 3 children in Ryslinge, a small town on the island of Funen. In the beginning of January 2018, Claus started in the Inwatec workshop as an Electrician.
Claus did a professional education as an electronic technician and worked with electronics for 10 years. He gathered experiences at RISØ National Laboratory (DTU), especially on DR3, which is an atomic test reactor. Further, he worked with emergency power plants and power electronics before he started switching into the field of automation.
“I have always been very interested in computer technology and building machines from scratch. I like the possibilities and challenges when working with automation technology – everything has to function together if we want to start the machine”, Claus says.
Within automation, he has plenty of experiences building electrical panels, assembling and servicing machines and servicing CNC-machines and robots. All this experience makes Claus a perfect candidate to support our workshop team. Additionally, he has done much of the electric work for Inwatec already in his latest job and therefore knew much about Inwatec’s machines even before he joined our team in the beginning of 2018.
After work, Claus spends much of his time on his small farm, which he owns together with his wife and her parents. There, they breed organic rabbits, own geese, pigs and a few calves. In his spare time, Claus especially loves to spend time with his family and also their dog Oline. Oline is a 4-year-old Keeshond (Wolfspitz), with which the family is even attending exhibitions and this spring she will have puppies.
