Morten has been on the road for 40 years

11.02.2021
Morten Petersen is an expert in servicing injection molding machines and in all the years he has worked for the same company part of ANDERTECH A/S.

Originally trained as an electrician, he was employed by Klöckner Ferromatik in Brøndby in 1981, established as a joint venture between the German equipment manufacturer Ferromatik and its Danish distributor. In 2007, Ferromatik Danmark was acquired by the Humlebæk company ANDERTECH A/S, which sells equipment for plastic production and is one of the frontrunners in the digitalisation of the Danish plastics industry. Thus, Morten Petersen can boast of having ‘survived’ several managers, and he is now the employee in Ferromatik / Andertech with the highest seniority..

MORTEN IS SELF-GOING
In his service car, Morten Petersen is not just driving - he is self-going. And he is well pleased with that.
- "My job is independent and free. Customers call me directly and I organize my working day myself. Of course I talk to the head office every day and I stop by in Humlebæk a couple of times a month. But they do not interfere in how I plan my time".
If you ask him how the job has changed since the beginning 40 years ago, Morten highlights the increased pace: - "Back then it was a party day when a customer had bought a new machine and it was pre-installed and ready to be used. Then they drove to the butcher for open sandwiches, and beers were served. We were probably not as efficient then as we are now. Today it is very much about money and time. Everything is tightened up so that you can keep up with the tough competition. But I'm not complaining. I still find it exciting and varied to visit the customers and help get their gear in top shape again".

For 40 years, Morten Petersen from Andertech has driven around the country to keep the wheels turning at plastic-producing companies.
