New production manager

On July 1, we welcomed Jørgen Krogh Hansen, as new production manager here at Maskinfabrikken JST. Jørgen is especially pleased to have come to a company with success, ambitions and team spirit

We are in the middle of expanding the factory to more than double the size, and our new production manager, Jørgen Krogh Hansen, couln’t have come at a better time. He will be able to contribute with his many years of experience and knowledge of production optimization when we put the new production halls into use during the next year.

Jørgen is motivated by success, ambitions and team spirit. And he is pleased that these three things are the soul of JST as a company. And of course we are both happy and proud of that here at JST.

Jørgen has both the theoretical and practical backpack in order. He has 30 years of experience in production management and has spent many years as a manager “on the floor”. So he knows what he is dealing with and can talk to the employees and understand their everyday life. An invaluable ability when he has to manage the daily production, and at the same time get ready to take new 4,000 m2 into use.

The first part of the new buildings is ready for the autumn, and it is Jørgen Krogh Hansen who is responsible for making both the interior design and the transition to the new halls work. He will also need his skills in IT, CNC control and robot control. These are some of the areas where we are planning an ongoing upgrade of the machine park as the new premises are taken into use.

But it is not just more machines that we will have room for. We also expect to upgrade staff in line with the expansion – in fact, more hands are already needed. This is another of the challenges that Jørgen is already well on his way to solving.
