Can you tell us more about Nefab Teknik?
The machines Nefab needed were not possible to buy and safety was poor back then, so Nefab Teknik was founded to develop machines that suited products, as well as to ensure proper machine safety. As you can imagine, there were a lot of things on our tables as Nefab grew rapidly. You can still find Nefab’s machines at our sites around the world and we are constantly supporting our sites with our expertise.
Nefab Teknik has been involved in pretty much all of Nefab’s expansions, both in Sweden and internationally. This gave me the opportunity to travel and meet people from all around the world. I have great memories from the travels, and I truly appreciated meeting all these fantastic people. We all share a great passion to drive Nefab forward, and I still have contact with people I met many years ago. The travels also made me humbler and more open to different perspectives and cultures, and this is something I still carry with me.
Can you share a memory from your years at Nefab?
As I have said, I have many great memories from all the travels I have done during the years. One of the most remarkable memories is from the time when Nefab established their sites in China. It was not very easy to travel there with all the visa procedures and border controls. At the same time, I was also jetlagged from the long flight and time difference. By the time when we finally got to China, colleagues from different Nefab sites started to call me and ask me to come to their site too. It was great to see how excited and enthusiastic they were to get going. It was fun to be a great help, even though it also meant long working days and few hours of sleep!
What is your view on the future?
It seems like I will be another one of those employees staying at Nefab until retirement. And I am eager to continue the journey I once started at Nefab back in 1959 as a sleeping baby in a plywood box!
