The only way is forward

Ville Alatalo likes it in a growing company

Ville AlataloMy team is working with a project that aims at bringing new products to production.  Already in the product development phase we try to make sure that the production of the products is as efficient as possible.

New ways of using frequency converters are found all the time. Traditionally they have been used in steering power engines but nowadays they are used in the production of renewable energy and saving energy. Last year the Vacon frequency converters saved as much energy as the production capacity of 8 nuclear reactors.

The best thing about my job is that I get to be part of a growing and forward going company. I also like the fact that I don’t spend the entire working day by the computer but that I get to spend time communicating with the people too. About 50 percent of my working day is in the office and the rest is spent on the factory floor.

I studied in Tampere and after my graduation I was looking for jobs all around Finland. In 2009 I started at Vacon in Vaasa and during my time here I have enjoyed working in several different positions within the company.
