Henrik has been an Application Engineer at Visual Components (VC) for over 3 years. He is highly skilled in manufacturing simulation, having spent over 5 years in the field before joining the VC Simulation Expert team.
When Henrik is not busy giving product presentations and demonstrations to our customers, he has quite a few hobbies. He loves sailing and to be surrounded by nature, so you might find him wandering in the woods, hunting deer or even hiking in Lapland. Like many staff at VC, Henrik also enjoys travelling and playing sports, such as football or floorball with his colleagues.
What is your background and how did you end up at Visual Components?
I have always been interested in engineering and robotics automation. I studied Automation Engineering in Tampere University of Technology. My major was Factory Automation, and it gave me an in-depth overview of our industry. In 2011, I started working as a technical sales support in Pemamek, a Finnish welding automation company. I also did my Bachelor and Master thesis for the company, which focused on simulation using Visual Components software.
After 5 years at Pemamek I felt like I needed more challenges. Lucky for me a position in Technical Sales at VC had just opened and I applied immediately.
What about Visual Components caught your attention?
Firstly, it was the product. I’ve used the software before, and it was a very positive experience. Therefore, I wanted to continue using it for my career. On the other hand, the job advertisement described exactly what I’ve expected for my dream job.
