Meet the doers

Seppo Niemi, Sheet Machining Centre Operator

Seppo makes about 150 to 200 door leaves on an average day, working carefully and without rushing it.

How long have you worked at Antti?

– For 7.5 years.

What is your typical working day like?

– I work at a laser sheet machining centre, making door leaves, frames, and mouldings with sheet metal. I supervise and control the line when the machine cuts pieces out of sheets according to its programming, making for example lock openings, hinge holes, and edge mouldings. I also operate a pressing or bending machine. We make about 150 to 200 door leaves on an average day, working carefully and without rushing it.

Can you describe a project or a day at work that made you feel like you had succeeded particularly well?

– When the machine works well, life is easy. I remember one night shift when the pressing machine failed due to a broken axle bolt in the unloading roller assembly. There were no maintenance personnel on site anymore, but I was able to replace the bolt and start the machine up again.

What is best about Antti and about working at Antti?

– We have a properly relaxed atmosphere here. There is plenty of humour among us colleagues. I appreciate being able to work indoors, as I have also been a construction worker and a garbage collector.

Why should a customer choose Antti products?

– Extensive experience guarantees quality and dependability. Antti-Teollisuus has been in the metal working industry for 70 years and making doors for about 30 years.

What does quality mean at your job?

– Continuity. When the quality is good, customers will place more orders. There are cases where a customer has tried a cheaper alternative, but has then come back to Antti because of quality reasons.

What do you do in your free time?

– I play on the computer. My current favourite is the role-playing game PC World of Warcraft Classic. There can be thousands of players on the same virtual arena at the same time. The shooter Cyberpunk 2077 is my other favourite. I’m not always sitting in front of a screen however – I have been doing airsoft for a long time as well. I am a member of the Salo region airsoft association.

What would you be doing if you didn’t work at Antti or in the door manufacturing industry?

– I would go back to driving a garbage truck. It was actually quite fun – an independent job where you didn’t need to work according to set schedules exactly. You can have some influence on your working hours there.
