Merima crew member
Motivated by a variety of tasks and the opportunity of building a career
Janne Repo, a long-standing professional, started his career at Merima in 2000. In the early part of his career, he was responsible for tool stock and property maintenance in Merima’s tool warehouse and organizing the delivery of goods from the warehouse to the shipyards in Turku and Rauma.

From procurement and maintenance, Janne moved on to production as a purchaser, where he was in charge of procurement for various projects.

Continuous development keeps the work interesting
Janne’s favourite part of his job has always been the variety of projects and overcoming challenges. Progress in the field has been rapid and each project has its own joys and challenges. However, each project ends with a sense of accomplishment when the customer’s vision has been turned into a reality.
