Meet Lucas Poulsen

Lucas Poulsen is one of our apprentices. He is well underway in the workshop, or the apprentice school, as we call it. He works at our plant in Aalborg, Denmark.

“In small companies it may well be much the same thing you do, but out here there are a lot of new things, and I get to grind, weld, measure up and drill holes. ”

Lucas' plan originally was to become a mechanic. He went straight to vocational college where he was introduced to i.e. industrial engineering, blacksmithing and mechanics.

He took an interest in blacksmithing, however, and the profession and the apprenticeship still live up to Lucas' expectations: 

“I hadn't heard of Bladt before, but my teacher at Tech College spoke highly of Bladt. We're put to use here, and we get to meet many different people. I could definitely imagine staying here.”

The apprentices are measuring, grinding, cutting up and processing.
We have a total of 14 apprentices at the factory in Aalborg 👷👷‍♀️👨‍🏭🏭, and we are starting up apprentice shool at Odense Port as well. Read the story here.

We have two colleagues who have close contact with the young people. Anders Andersen is one of them. He is a trained black smith himself, and started at Bladt at the age of 21, and is today an apprentice assistant.

The other is Hans Ole Sannes Nielsen, our Apprentice Responsible. 

Anders shows a project the young people are working on - an electrical panel that needs a welded bottom. It is a task that is a little more reminiscent of the coming daily life as a black smith.

“It's not difficult to find someone who can weld. But skilled blacksmiths don't come by the dozen. Someone who can calculate, and make things fit to measure and cut out. ”

Here are some of the impressions of the other apprentices: 

“It has been very positive, and we are actually allowed to do something, even though we are completely new. We are allowed to help with even the really big things.”

Frederik Jespersen

“Blacksmithing attracted me more than mechanics. You can build something instead of fixing things”
