Now 55 years old, Jukka Hahko began by welding his neighbors’ trailer shafts and pig pens. In 1982, Jukka participated in the shipyard’s welding course where his career at Meyer started. Today, Jukka is in charge of welding guidance and welding tests as well as supervision of subcontractor competencies at Meyer Turku Shipyard where up to 400 people weld on a regular basis.
Over the course of 20 years, Pasi Laakso has worked as a welder in four different places – practically half his life. Pasi is planning to get IWS training while Jukka has already completed it.
