Talking to… Teunis
Hi Teunis, pleasure talking to you! Could you reveal a little about yourself?
Teunis, 31, Dutch.
Very concise Teunis! So what do you do at the FEPshop headquarters on a day-to-day basis?
I repair printers that are coming back from users, and when that’s done I help at logistics.
What form of transportation do you use to get to the office?
I live in the city center of Groningen and close enough so that the easiest way that I come on the bike.
How did your relationship with FEPshop start?
While I was looking for work I applied for a logistics position (and got it). And when the technician became ill the repair work got more and more and I started doing the repairs and to this day I am still doing it.
Why do you like working for FEPshop?
It’s still a growing company and I want to see all the changes, be part of these changes and give my ideas to make things work better.
What was your first introduction to 3D printing like?
When I applied for a job at FEPshop and they wanted me to come by for the interview I Googled it to get a little information. And now I got a printer from the company at home to play with and I love it.
What do you find fascinating about 3D technology?
That you make stuff you like yourself instead of buying it and even with moving parts, I find that amazing.
If you had €1000 to spare, which 3D printer would you buy, or which add-on or consumable?
I would probably buy the Sonic Mighty. It’s a really nice and simple machine to use.
If you could print any object in the world, what would you print for yourself?
I would print my furniture. I think it would be really cool to have all printed furniture in my house.
What do you expect will happen in 3D printing in the next 5 years?
Anything can happen. There are printers that can print a house in 24 hours so we can expect anything.
What is your personal ambition career wise? Where will you be 10 years from now?
I’m not a career chaser. I just want to help this company grow to its maximum potential and beyond that.
If you’re not in the office, or at home, where would we find you?
At friends, family or at a pub.
(We’ll meet you there Teunis!)
