Antti Marine

Meet the doers

Marjo Mettala,
Assembly Worker

As a native of this small rural community, it feels great to know that we have such world-class talent here with deep traditions. The people here are conscientious, skilled, and good-humoured. We do everything we can to honour our agreements with our customers.

How long have you been working at Antti?

– From 1998 to 2004 at first, and now again as of 2020.

What is your typical day like?

– I work at door production, both at the single-part production table and on the line. The single-part production table is for making individual pieces and small series. At the table, hinges, the lock and handle, the reader, door viewer, door pump, mouldings, and frames are added to the door blank. On the line, larger orders are completed as serial jobs. Four assembly workers work on the line, installing the mentioned components as a team effort.

Tell about a project that made you feel like you were particularly successful.

– I hope that my best day is still to come. I always feel nice when we reach our target and ship the order on time. What was especially great was the ending of the uncertainty caused by the Coronavirus pandemic and how trucks started arriving again to pick up finished doors.

What is best about Antti and about working at Antti?

– As a native of this small rural community, it feels great to know that we have such world-class talent here with deep traditions. The local ownership is also nice. We employ a lot of long-time employees. The people here are conscientious, skilled, and good-humoured. Someone will always offer to help with heavy doors for example.

What does quality mean for your work?

– It means working with as much care as possible. Quality can be seen for example in perfectly aligned mouldings, cleanly installed locks, and the absence of any scratches and other marks.

Why should a customer choose Antti products?

– We do everything we can to honour our agreements with our customers.

What do you do in your free time?

– My children’s hobbies take up most of my time. My son plays floorball, and my daughter is into track and field and horseback riding. I also spend a lot of time with horses. My daughter and I own a big pony together. Rollo is a white Connemara who lives with us at our homestead in the summertime.

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

– I would be a riding instructor. That is an easy question, as I have worked both as a riding instructor and in customer services.
