Jerker Pettersson at Westermo receives scholarship

Jerker Pettersson has been awarded a scholarship of 10 000 SEK from Arvid Nilsson’s memorial fund, issued by Eskilstuna Fabriksförening.

The scholarship was awarded Jerker Pettersson in Eskilstuna, on 27 October, 2016. Jerker has studied production engineering with a focus on Lean, and will now, with his knowledge and dedication, bring the manufacturing process something unique.

The motivation reads: Jerker has extensive experience as a process engineer in electronics manufacturing. Knowledge he has accumulated through experience and working with complex products for industrial communication. For two years he has added a manufacturing technology education with special focus on Lean. This means that Jerker can use and combine practical experience with new theoretical knowledge in a very valuable way for Westermo.

Kari Parkkila, production manager at Westermo, says that the trend is getting towards complex printed circuit boards, with increased demands as a result. In the future, the soldering process will be much more complex to manage. That Jerker has been awarded this scholarship is very beneficial for us at Westermo.

Jerker will work with a standardised approach, with a focus on Lean, to further optimise and increase the efficiency of our processes. He will further reduce the risks for us to make errors in the future. Our production will be better, more effective and safer. It will strengthen the Westermo’s position as a market leader in
industrial data communication.

Kari concluded by congratulating Jerker to the fine scholarship.
