50 young men and women have successfully completed their training at Brose. All the junior staff will be kept on by the company: as mechatronics engineers, electronics engineers for operating equipment, industrial clerks, machine tool technicians, industrial mechanics and technical draughtspersons.
Of the 50 who completed their course, six were trained in Hallstadt, 18 in Würzburg, 19 in Coburg, five in Wuppertal and two in Berlin.
In the Chamber of Commerce and Industry districts of Würzburg, Wuppertal and Berlin, the apprentices will be awarded their qualifications, marking the successful close of their apprenticeship in the course of the year. In Coburg, this ceremony was
already held on April 23. As in previous years, the grades achieved in 2008 by apprentices at Brose were again some of the best in the Chamber’s district: the mechatronics engineer Andreas Döllinger and the electronics engineer for operating equipment Dominik Hagel achieved the grade 1.1. Top technical draughtsperson was Michael Schneider with a grade of 1.3.
As Michael Stammberger, head of the apprenticeship center at Brose, noted at the ceremony at the Rosengarten Congress House, Brose’s apprentices turned in especially good results in the corporate group’s centennial year: more than half of the 23 graduates in the Chamber’s district completed their examination with an average top grade of 1. Stammberger added: “The level of achievement of our junior employees is extremely pleasing and again documents the great motivation they have to do their very best to make Brose even more successful in the market.”
Guest speaker Dirk Bauermann, coach of the German basketball team and head coach of Brose Baskets, impressively described the challenges that must be overcome day in, day out in sport and working life in order to prevail against fierce competition and be a winner.
The Brose Group is currently training more than 200 young people in nine commercial and industrial/technical vocations and as part of three University of Cooperative Education degree courses at Coburg, Hallstadt, Wuppertal, Würzburg and Berlin.
