Meet the team – Wendell Konings
Conscious choice for Kiremko
Wendell consciously chose a career at Kiremko. Even before Wendell officially joined Kiremko, he was already doing holiday work for the company and started an internship as well. He eventually stuck around.
“Through school, I always wanted to do something in the technical field, so I did internships here and there at various metal companies. I got the best feeling at Kiremko and saw a good future for myself.”
Involvement in enthusing young people
Wendell is regularly involved in information sessions at schools on behalf of Kiremko and helps children with welding in the factory or on site. He enjoys showing young people how engineering works in practice and especially teaching trainees how to weld.
”It’s super cool to see how enthusiastic those kids react when you explain things to them and show them our work. If they are then allowed to weld themselves, they think it’s really cool. If by doing this we can ensure that more children choose our beautiful profession then our mission is successful right?”
