I’ve had a warm welcome to the company. My co-workers have included me and seem eager to help me learn and perform well. I also think the focus on HSE is really good.

Aina started working with us in December 2021 and quickly started operating the rubber extruder. She recently worked in a grocery store and has now stepped into the industrial world of lay-flat hoses.

I like my tasks, as they are interesting, educational, and challenging. I have good co-workers, and I have learned basically everything I know from them. I also like that I am able to influence decisions through my union role.

Arild has been with us for 26 years, he received his gold watch last year due to 25 years of service. He is responsible for our Hedelius 5-axis CNC machine, and in 2019 he got his CNC skilled worker certificate. He is also head of the union, a role he has filled for the last 6 years.

I can’t complain about anything. We are heard in continuous improvement matters and the production line I am at is really good. We have a high focus on safety, which is why I told my youngest to apply here.

Tefik has been with us for 15 years and has competence in all workstations in the hose department. When he took his skilled worker exam he passed with the highest achievable grade and is now a proud Production Technician. His wife and older son used to work here, and now his youngest son Amel is working in our weaving department.
