A new CNC Apprentice Production Line

– There’s a rich pool of knowledge and experience among our senior staff, and it’s vital that this expertise is passed down to our apprentices. This mentorship ensures a seamless blending of decades of know-how to new techniques and innovations, explains Pettersen.

Together with the broad knowlegde of the rest of the team, MOMEK is building a strong foundation for the apprentices future careers.

– Our seniors role in guiding our apprentices is invaluable. This culture of mentorship enriches the learning experience for apprentices, providing them with a wide perspective on the industry, says Bredesen.

Looking Toward a Bright Future

As MOMEK continues to grow and evolve, the focus remains firmly on it´s employees.

– Our goal is to facilitate a good and optimal learning process for apprentices right from the start of their journey at MOMEK, Pettersen concludes.

With its blend of investing in both equipment and people, together with skilled mentorship and a commitment to comprehensive training, MOMEK is well-positioned to lead the industry into a bright and innovative future.
