How Sigurd looks ahead, so we’re never stuck in the past
Sigurd Lazic Villumsen
Technology Expert, Production Technology & Engineering
Robots, artificial intelligence and exoskeletons. No, it isn’t the tagline of a sci-fi movie, but just some of the things Sigurd works with on a daily basis. And even if it is “just another day at the office”, Sigurd admits that he enjoys coming into work.
But it isn’t because of the technology alone. Rather it is the perspective it has in terms of what it means for VELUX and the people who work here: “it fascinates me to see what we can achieve when integrate new technology into our organisation – how we can ease the burden of someone who has to lift and carry many kilos every day. Or how we can spot flaws in wood in a faster and more efficient way. Basically, it is just new tools in our toolbox”, he explains.
And the fact that these technologies aren’t just something that hides in the darkness of an R&D department, but that they actually see the light of day, is something that makes it worth Sigurd and his colleagues’ while.
