CCI Honors Dieffenbacher Apprentices

On Thursday 9 October, the Chambers of Commerce and Industry (CCI) in Heilbronn-Franken honored apprentices trained by businesses in the city and county of Heilbronn for their outstanding examination results. A total of 308 graduates received their honors in the Intersport redblue exhibition and event center. Among the recipients were three graduates from the Eppingen plant manufacturer Dieffenbacher.

Julian Müller, Elena Wildt and Benjamin Weber were presented with certificates in recognition of their achievements. The previous years at Dieffenbacher have prepared the graduates extremely well for the new chapters of their lives that are beginning now that they have successfully completed training.

Julian Müller completed his apprenticeship as part of the cooperative study program, which Dieffenbacher offers for various courses of study. The cooperative study program lasts just under five years in total. Having trained for 18 months as a mechatronics engineer, Julian Müller now studies Mechatronics and Microsystems Engineering at Heilbronn University. During his training, Julian Müller completed basic courses in machining and electronics and provided assistance in the industrial engineering and major assembly divisions. He particularly enjoyed two weeks working on assembly in Slovakia. "I was able to actively contribute to work on site and really support my colleagues. The teamwork was great!", says Julian Müller. During semester breaks he continues to work in various departments within Dieffenbacher.

During her business administration training, Elena Wildt gained experience in various commercial and technical departments. One of the highlights of her apprenticeship was two weeks spent in Sundsvall, Sweden, where she worked in the financial department of Sunds MDF, a Dieffenbacher subsidiary. Having completed her apprenticeship, Elena Wildt obtained a permanent position at Dieffenbacher. She will work in project management within the Wood division. In this role, Elena Wildt will process deliveries to Dieffenbacher construction sites all around the world. If a part is missing or faulty, she will arrange for the correct part to be delivered as quickly as possible.

Benjamin Weber's career path has also been secured: the fully trained industrial mechanic is now studying Production and Process Management at Heilbronn University.
