The start of a new chapter in life
The beginning of September is an important time every year for all human resources managers: The new apprentices are coming. That is the case at Krug & Priester as well. On 2nd September 2019, the medium-sized family business was able to welcome four new apprentices.
On this day, three young men – Marc Wallenstein, Felix Brobeil and Jan-Niklas Stein – started their three-and-a-half year apprenticeship as industrial mechanics (specialising in equipment and precision engineering). For the first time, the Balingen-based company was also able to fill a training position as an IT specialist (specialising in system integration) with Pascal Siegmund. Due to increasing digitalisation, the necessary IT knowledge has increased and Krug & Priester is now one of the privileged companies in the region, which can now also train its junior IT staff itself. The two training managers, Markus Sautter (industrial sector) and Dr Michael Walther (commercial sector), welcomed the young people and gave them a first insight into the company during a tour of the premises.
"Our commitment to Balingen also includes a commitment to offering apprenticeships each year. This has been an integral part of our company philosophy since the company was founded. In this way, we provide young people with opportunities and, at the same time, invest in our future. This results in a real win-win situation for both parties. Our apprenticeships are highly sought after and are always quickly assigned. Fortunately, we have not had any problems finding apprentices so far," concludes Dr Michael Walther, authorised signatory and commercial training manager at Krug & Priester.
