When Christer Andersen arrived in Hammerfest, Norway, the northernmost town in the world, on a three-year assignment with Tenaris as a supply chain analyst, he was a little bit in shock. It was remote, it was freezing, and it was a new kind of work and life. There was much to adjust to at 71 degrees North.
In 1990, Luis Mozzoni was about to graduate as a mechanical engineer, when an opportunity came up to join Tenaris as part of a Young Professionals program in Argentina. He accepted and continued studying, adding an industrial engineering degree to his resumé, while joining the company’s hot rolling technology team. “I immediately took on important responsibilities. Tenaris offers challenging projects from day one,” he recalls.
Proactive and determined. This is how co-workers describe Lucas Silva. Proudly born and raised in Brazil, Silva started working in Confab, Tenaris’s welded pipe mill in Pindamonhangaba, as an operator in the steel control area in 2007. At that time, he was only 19 years old and could not have imagined the path he would follow. Today, Alemão (“the German” in Portuguese), as he is called by his colleagues, is part of the field services team and has worked on both offshore and onshore projects, assisting customers from major oil and gas companies at their drilling sites on how to run Tenaris pipes.
Engineering, HR, procurement, sales… not a linear career path, but Laura Urrutia’s trajectory has a common thread: adapt and add value.
Tenaris is strengthening the Technical Gene program in Colombia, with an investment to improve the infrastructure at Bertha Suttner Technical High School in Cartagena. The investment also contemplates new courses that aim to reinforce students’ theoretical and practical knowledge by offering sessions with specialized industrial machinery, enabling them to gain real-life experience using industrial equipment and workbenches.
When Diego Magallanes made it back home to the province of San Luis, Argentina, in 2005, following a summer internship at Tenaris’ Siderca plant in Buenos Aires, he did not imagine he was going to be called back so soon.
With a degree in mechanical engineering, Magallanes was invited back in 2006 to join the company’s welded pipe plant in Valentín Alsina. This marked the start of his big journey at Tenaris.
