Hjerno establishes a permanent evening shift

Over the coming months, Hjerno Tool Factory will roll out a new setup with a permanent evening shift of four men, so that production in future will run as a two-shift operation.

Two of the four employees have already started and the remaining two will join on 15 January. The new permanent evening shift will both help to further reduce lead times and increase Hjerno's production flexibility .

“We can see that our customers demand suppliers, who can handle orders quickly, efficiently and flexibly. Therefore, we are now establishing a permanent evening shift that will make us even more flexible and at the same time able to take on more urgent repair tasks,” explains Managing Director Aage Agergaard.

Time for emergency repairs
The evening shift will consist of four talented and versatile tool makers, who will start their shift at 2 pm in the afternoon to allow for handover from the day shift.

Thanks to Hjerno's modern CNC machinery and our separate programming department, the machines will be able to run unmanned much of the time in the evening, leaving time to perform, for example, emergency repairs. Tasks that are also made possible by Hjerno's large and updated spare parts stock of standard parts and various steels, etc. 

Extremely high flexibility
“The combination of our evening shift and our machinery provides us with unprecedented flexibility, which will certainly benefit our customers,” says Aage Agergaard.

He tells that there has been great interest in the four positions. This is partly because a high degree of flexibility is included, so that the employees in principle may have an entire working week accumulated in three or four evenings.
