In our chain department we have 2 employees and one of them is Morten Keinicke. Morten is kind of an "iron man", both professionally and privately, as he spends a lot of his free time on running - long and demanding runs.
Meet our chain and service employee Morten Keinicke
In our chain department you will find Morten Keinicke, who has now been with us for 6.5 years. Morten is a trained agricultural machine mechanic. He has worked as a blacksmith at a machine factory, where he was, among other things, running larger projects. He has also worked as a maintenance employee within production at a large company. Then the time had come to seek new challenges and the choice fell on CERTEX Danmark, which has a chain department in Vojens. Here are many different exciting and challenging tasks and it is where Morten works today.
In the chain department, chain slings from 5 mm/1 ton and up to 32 mm/40 ton are produced in many different variants, and chain hoists with special chain lengths are prepared here as well. The employees in the chain department are also occasionally involved in in-house installation of, for example, larger lifting beams. It also happens regularly that the department is used as a "janitor" for various tasks in our department in Vojens.
In addition to working with chain, Morten also carries out repair, maintenance and statutory inspections of lifting equipment that customers send in. This includes everything from lifting products to fall protection (including repair of fall arrest blocks), hoists and winches, electric hoists (troubleshooting, repair and installation of various remote controls), load tests and verification of crane scales.
“To be able to perform some of the above-mentioned tasks, you must be a trained lifting equipment technician. I have been through peer training in the department, and a subsequent written exam in the industry association for Danish crane manufacturers, which is the association responsible for educating and certifying all our service technicians ", says Morten.
Morten also has a slightly untraditional function in the company, he is our "model" when we make small photo and video sessions for our news posts. However, this comes natural to Morten, as he also does small modelling jobs in his spare time.
“The best thing about my job is that we have so many various tasks. And if you are given a task that you have not tried before, then there is great satisfaction in solving it yourself. Otherwise, you can always count on help from colleagues and that means quite a lot for one's job satisfaction ", says Morten.
