For the third time now, the event took place in the industrial park am Kreuz in Idar-Oberstein, and FRITSCH joined again this year. Young people had the chance to tour the company and view it in the middle of its processes and gain insights into different jobs.
Starting at 12 o’ clock, the gates of the production facilities opened for young people interested in apprenticeship positions. Numerous students attended with their parents, and others dared to come all alone to get to know different jobs, took a view into the company or to search specifically for apprenticeship positions. Therefore, FRITSCH offered led factory tours, interesting exercises and talks with employees and trainees.
To directly convey some practical impressions, some FRITSCH Mills were set-up in the entrance of production facility II, including the Variable-Speed Rotor Mill PULVERISETTE 14, the Mini-Mill PULVERISETTE 23 and the Mortar Grinder PULVERISETTE 2. The visitors paid close attention to the functionality of the machines, which was demonstrated by FRITSCH laboratory assistant Swen Donauer.
The current FRITSCH trainees, consisting of 4 industrial clerks and 2 industrial mechanics, were on hand with help and advice, because there is probably nobody better suited for describing the life of a trainee than them. So questions about the jobs were answered, and the procedures of the apprenticeships explained in more detail. Topics like vocational school or contents of the apprenticeship were also very interesting points.
Tours were offered by facility manager Hermann Michel, who led the visitors through the production facilities explaining in detail different work stations for example warehouse, production or assembly. Even the complete production flow – from blanks to completed machines – was shown. They also included many interesting stations like the huge CNC-Milling machines or the unique FRITSCH-tube mail.
