It was really easy to come here. I was given a very warm welcome as a newcomer.
Lauri Gummerus joined Mecapinta as a coating worker in September 2019. At first, I was a bit anxious to start a new job and join a new team, but it soon proved to be unnecessary. Lauri thinks that you can successfully make it in the coating business if you have initiative and a willingness to learn.
Lauri Gummerus joined Mecapinta in September 2019. He had just finished his career as a professional athlete and found his way to Mecapinta through a tip from a staff leasing company. After visiting for an interview, he did not have to wait long to hear that he had found a job.
The new job and being part of a new team was exciting, but it was nothing to be nervous about. “It was really easy to come here. I was given a very warm welcome as a newcomer.”
Lauri works as a surface finisher on the zinc line. Over the past four years, he has also become familiar with other plating lines, such as silver, copper, nickel, and tin plating. The main stages of a plating operator’s job are hanging the pieces on different racks, programming the equipment, and sending the pieces to the line for plating. After coating, the pieces are checked, counted, and packed. Quality monitoring is part of the process from start to finish.
For Lauri, the best part of the job is the diversity. Thinking about how to coat new pieces offers a nice challenge from time to time and to see a successful result is very motivating. Monitoring quality is an important part of the job, and if there is something you’re worried about, it’s always easy to turn to a supervisor in charge.
The work is physical, but there is also plenty of energy left for leisure activities. On Thursdays, we play padel with the work team, and the E-pass provided by Mecapinta is used for other sports activities and massages.

Feel free to send an application! Your initiative will be rewarded. Even though our work involves handling parts of varied sizes, you do not need to be a body-builder. The most important thing is to have the condition to be able to stand and move during the day and to have the willingness to learn and develop your skills!
