For how long have you been working at Antti?

– For almost 27 years.

What is your typical day like?

– My job is to make a 3D model for the ordered door, the specifications for which are taken into our enterprise resource planning system. On a typical day, I work with 3D modelling, spreadsheet, and enterprise resource planning software. Occasionally we exchange information with other designers. Sometimes I drop by our door factory to discuss the manufacturability of different parts or products.

What is a project or a day at work that made you feel like you were particularly successful?

– I am happy when I am able to come up with a solution that facilitates manufacturing and also improves the quality of the product. As an example of this, I once invented a new support tool for the door gluing stage.

What is best about Antti and about working at Antti?

– Antti is a dependable and solvent employer that has grown larger over the years.

Why should a customer choose Antti products?

– Antti makes stylish and durable doors and invests in soundproofing in the development stage.

What does quality mean for your work?

– If a door has been well designed, its production will usually run smoothly. Experience helps in doing good design work.

What do you do in your free time?

– I spend a lot of time outdoors, including the garden, the city streets, and the woods. In the winter I am often on skis. My hobbies include cross-country skiing and downhill skiing.

What would you do if you didn’t work at Antti or with doors?

– I got my first introduction to the metalworking industry about 40 years ago. Before Antti, I worked at a few other metalworking jobs. If I didn’t work at Antti, I would probably work at a machine shop somewhere – in the same industry anyway.
