Four new apprentices learn a profession in metalworking

Four young adults joined the ranks of apprentices at Klingel medical metal on September 1st, just in time for the start of the new apprenticeship year. Allan Czornitzek, Max Wiedemann, Pascal Lindauer and Tim Albrecht started their multi-year apprenticeship as cutting machine operators, metal technology specialists and machine and plant operators at the Pforzheim-based medical technology company. They were welcomed by Managing Director Ralf Petrawitz, Training Manager Patrick Gauss and Human Resources Specialist Franziska Schäfer. Petrawitz briefly introduced the company and its integration into the Klingel Group in a concise presentation and wished the young professionals a good start. Afterwards, Patrick Gauss took them on a company tour of all four plants on Hanauer Straße in the Altgefäll industrial estate. Next week, an excursion to the Europa Park Rust is on the agenda to get to know each other better and for team building. We wish the new trainees much joy and success for their professional start.

New impressions at partner company in Pforzheim

The six trainees from all three apprenticeship years of Josef Ganter Feinmechanik, one of the other five portfolio companies of the Klingel medical metal group, met at Klingel medical metal GmbH in Pforzheim for an exchange visit. The retiring training manager Sascha Doering (left) used the meeting as an opportunity to say goodbye to the Pforzheim team with its training manager Patrick Gauss (right) and to introduce his successor Sascha Hülsheger (third from left). The exchange between the two training companies, which has existed since the takeover of Josef Ganter Feinmechanik GmbH in Dauchingen in 2015, is to be maintained and expanded in order to provide the trainees in the metalworking industry with the best possible qualifications.

Trainees are taken on as skilled workers

We congratulate our apprentices Ardit Maloku (left) and Nico Keller (centre) on passing their final exams. Our two junior staff members have successfully completed their three-and-a-half-year apprenticeship as CNC machine operators/focus on turning. HR Manager Ira Jacob and Training Manager Patrick Gauss (right) offered their congratulations and presented certificates and diplomas from the Chamber of Industry and Commerce. Both fully trained skilled workers will be taken on by Klingel medical metal. Ardit Maloku will continue his work in the Star Long Turning department, Nico Keller in the Emco Turning department. We wish both of them all the best and much success for their future careers in our company.

Make 2023 your year! However, you have to take the first step yourself. We will support you with our pedagogical and technical expertise, as well as with human and collegial support, in all further steps on the way to entering professional life or to professional reorientation. Be there when it comes to using CNC machining to produce beautifully shaped parts from raw material with rough edges that improve people's lives in illness and old age or are used in the search for life in outer space.

"Training to be a machinist is very diverse and varied. Every part is different and it is fascinating to see the precision with which they are produced. Many different tools and state-of-the-art machines are used," say Chris and Roland, who completed their training at Klingel medical metal. "We learned an incredible amount in the three years, from manual processing to highly specialised, automated processes. For us, it's a profession with a future in a growing medium-sized company with versatile fields of application and continuous technological development," the two are convinced.
