Girls’ Day and Boys’ Day 2018

This year's Girls’ Day and Boys’ Day took place at our company on 26 April 2018. Seven girls and boys from Hillesheim, Gerolstein and surrounding areas began their day with us with a tour of the facility and a health & safety briefing by Ms Britta Ubl, the Head of HR.

Together with the department heads and colleagues, she showed the students how after several work steps, a piece of wire can be formed into a finished screw plug, a pick or a pressure sleeve.

Dominik Hoffmann, who is currently working on the construction of a new production system, demonstrated how hot a material can actually become when heated and formed, and how the forming process is carried out. Employees of various departments, such as the design department explained in detail what steps and materials are being tested, what to look out for when manufacturing highly complex parts, and how the individual production machines work.

After their visit to the company, the girls and boys were then given the opportunity to interview the commercial management apprentice, Lena Hoffmann (21 years), about her choice of company and profession, her apprenticeship and future plans.

Lena earned their respect for her training to date when she reported that she would be taking her final exam in June 2018, and that in future she will be working in the ‘Work preparation’ department, where she will be planning and controlling production processes. It was hard for the students of Years 7 and 8 to imagine that, with the agreement of the company, Lena is planning to go to Australia on her own for two months in September and October 2018 to improve her English.

It was certainly a very informative day for the participants of Girls’ Day and Boys’ Day, most of whom had never visited a manufacturing company before.
