New apprentices strengthen FISCHER Licht & Metall

Top training rate

Mühlhausen. Nine apprentices started their new phase of life at FISCHER Licht & Metall on September 1. Five young adults, one of them a girl, decided to train as construction mechanics.

Of the remaining four, two took up the profession of industrial clerk, one that of technical system planner and one that of sign and light sign maker.

With this year's new additions, there are now 23 trainees in three cohorts at the company. The resulting trainee quota of just under 12% is thus at the absolute top of the national average.

In the course of their 3 to 3.5-year training period, the newcomers will get to know the various departments and gain valuable professional experience at FISCHER Licht & Metall.

Stephan K. Fischer, Managing Director of the 200-employee company, welcomed the new trainees and emphasized the importance of a sound apprenticeship: "We are countering the shortage of skilled workers with solid and qualified training. Because investing in our junior staff today, is a competitive advantage tomorrow."

The welcome was followed by a tour of the plant and assignment to the individual departments.
