In August 2021 I had my 10th anniversary at Concens. The good thing about my work is that it challenges me as I am responsible for many of the special assignments, such as is our new icon series, the large con60's, as well as 'encoder' and many more specials produced items. So, it's not just to pay bills I'm at Concens, but because I like to be part of the team and enjoy the variety of the challenging special tasks.
I was born and raised in a small town called 'Porkeri' in the Faroe Islands and in 2000 I bought a flight ticket to Denmark and stayed ever since. My girlfriend and I are spending our spare time at my small allotment at the outskirts of Esbjerg. I am also a Recruitment Specialist in the voluntary organization of the Marine Home Guard. Since 2008 I am also a dedicated volunteer for the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation, which i.e., organize the open-air concert events named 'Grøn Koncert', to raise money for charity.
And… I have given up teaching the Danes to speak Faroese.
Finnbogi Jensen - Production (Sept. 2021)
It is now my 4th year I am at Concens, where I am part of the team and have my daily work in our production. I enjoy the good working conditions, having great colleagues and that we have a free tone of voice. I value the freedom and diversity in the work and that we produce something that really works.
I am passionate about riding my motorcycle in my spare time, as well as spending time with fitness. I have 2 adult girls, 3 adult bonus girls with my husband Brian and together we have a total of 7 grandchildren. Since I enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles, I work as a volunteer for a second-hand shop, as a jigsaw puzzle tester, to check that no parts are missing…
And when I'm with friends and family, my jigsaw puzzle is complete.
Vibeke Krejlgaard – Produktion (May 2021)
For me, it means a lot to go to work with joy, even after over 11 years in the company. That we have freedom under responsibility and even run the daily race under positive influence is certainly a great advantage. I work with different tasks in production and think it is nice that there is an opportunity for this kind of variety. Concens offers many benefits, such as flex time, yearly staff events and shared breakfasts every Friday, which strengthen the good internal collaboration with both management and colleagues. It gives me the feeling that I am part of the company, as we are continuously informed about the development. I am married for 35 years and together we have two grown girls and 2 lovely grandchildren, who my husband and I spend a lot of time with in our spare time. Otherwise, I enjoy weekend stays with friends, spending time on walks with the dog, ride my bicycle or going to the gym to keep my fit…
And, there is a professional golfer hidden in me.
Connie Sørensen – Produktion (April 2021)
For 7 years, I have now been a part of the team at Concens, and I can gladly say that it is a good place to work. I appreciate being with colleagues where the tone of the conversation is informal and honest. There is a great flexibility, especially when it comes to planning the workday, as I can influence my 'come and go' times. I am the mother of two lovely children. Nicklas, 13 years, who drives Speedway and plays handball and Nelli, 10 years, with a passion for playing handball. I myself like to keep fit with my fitness at the gym and of course to be a part of my children's sports as well. I am also a volunteer helper in our local speedway club - Esbjerg Motor Sport. As you can see, I am very active...
And, I have a weakness for Pepsi-Max and internet shopping.
Marianne Holm Jakobsen - Production (Mar. 2021)
I joined Concens in 2007 as Technical Manager (as employee no. 6) and in 2009, when Peder (Peder Jørgensen, founder of Concens) decided to take one step back, I took over as the Managing Director. I am passionate about developing Concens and ensuring that we have a well-driven, financially strong and respected corporation for many years to come. Fortunately, my daily work implies a broad variety of different tasks, which have both short- and long-term perspectives and it is important to me that all colleagues thrives and that we always keep our heritage and values in mind. Together with my wife, Dorthe - who works as a nurse in the local hospital – I enjoy a long weekend away, preferably in one of Europe’s big cities. I do also like to play tennis and golf and keep myself fit by occasionally running in my spare time. In addition, there is always a small (or large) project to be taken care of on our old house. Furthermore, I am active as board member in the local tennis club…
and, I am always ready for a challenge on the tennis court.
Rene Lynge – CEO (Dec. 2020)
For nearly 7 years I have been a part of the Concens family, which still makes me feel comfortable and satisfied, as it is a nice place to work, with lovely colleagues and a great deal of flexibility. My daily work is in the production, where we also have the possibility to shift between the production lines, is making the working days dynamic and varying, where we don’t get bored. I appreciate the understanding from the company when you occasionally have to stay home from work if one of the kids are ill. Besides spending my spare time with keeping track on my family, my husband and our two lovely kids. I spend a lot of time with coaching the local soccer team (girls at the age of 10 years) And we also spend a lot of weekends on the speedway track as our son has a passion for the fast motorbikes. I appreciate to take a long walk to clear my head, and feel the wind blowing through my hair…
and, planning soccer strategies for my team for the next match.
Randi Pedersen – Production (Oct. 2020)
Concens is an exciting and growing company, where you have the opportunity to be a part of the whole process and follow the different projects from the very beginning until the finished produced product. It gives me great personal satisfaction to see the results of the projects I am working on, either if it is for our customers or internal. I appreciate the good atmosphere and both colleagues and management are very accommodating, and all are treated with great respect for the various personalities, that is within Concens. Here there is space to be whom you are. I am a mechanical engineer and have been part of the Concens family since Summer 2019. I enjoy the variety and the daily options to immerse within technique by working on customer projects, prepare detailed drawings or to be in the workshop to perform various tests. I love the sea and sail a lot in my spare time, where I also enjoy spending time with maintaining my sailboat…
and, on my boat I am the captain.
Svend Erik Larsen – Engineering and Support (Sept. 2020)
I have been part of the Concens family since 2008 and I am still enjoying my daily bicycle ride to and from work because of my colleagues and the casual way we talk to and respect each other. Our management is down to earth and I like the good and informal collaboration. I appreciate the opportunities for change, as the work is versatile and we change between preparing parts for our actuators and working on the assembly line. My husband and I have 3 adult children, which we always have supported a lot in their various leisure interests. We are very close to our family, friends and neighbours and we love to watch a good soccer game...
and, I enjoy watching TV series while resting on my couch.
Elsebeth S. Kristensen - Production (Feb. 2020)
It is now my seventh year at Concens and I like the fact that our work is both appreciated and praised. We have a great deal of freedom in how we plan our own workday. I mainly deal with the technical side, testing and participating in development for special products. I also enjoy being the Concens product educator for our many partners. The good colleagues, informal jargon and room for humour on a daily basis gives me great value. My wife and I have 2 adult children whom we love spending our time with. I am fond of electronics and mechanics, and I'm generally a very active handyman spending spare time on house, garden and car. Fishing, playing badminton and billiards, and watching Speedway and Formula 1 are also part of my leisure interests...
and, I am a virtuoso in the kitchen.
Bjarne Bøge Nørup - Engineering and Support (Feb. 2020)
In 2019, I had my 10-year anniversary at Concens where I started on the assembly line in our production. Today, I mainly handle the preparation and assembly of the controller, preparation of various parts for production and I have part responsibility for repairs as well. I like to help out in the warehouse or elsewhere, where a jack-of-all-trades like me is needed. I appreciate that we are listened to and trusted to take responsibility for our own tasks. In my spare time, I like to go to flea markets with my girlfriend. I also enjoy watching a good soccer match with friends along with good food and maybe a beer during the match...
and, I have a passion for playing guitar.
Kenneth Lejel - Production (Jan. 2020)
I value a good place to work with opportunity for personal development, flexibility and the chance for a little technical nerdiness. My passion is sales, marketing as well as communication and being a good team player. To have the space to be creative, helping out my colleagues, our partners and customers on a daily basis makes me smile and gives me great satisfaction, which is exactly why Concens is the perfect workplace for me. I am a happily married mother with 2 lovely teenagers. I like spending my spare time with family and friends or exercising and walking half-marathons...
and, I am a bit of a gin enthusiast.
