Apprenticeship / Career
An apprenticeship in the plumbing trade
With more than 4.8 million employees and an annual turnover of nearly 490 billion euro, skilled crafts and trades are a major player in the German economy. An increase in productivity is intrinsically tied to the skilled crafts and trades. Conversely, skilled crafts and trades are independent of the development in the international sales and financial markets and therefore offer largely "crisis-proof" jobs.
Our company is a typical trade contractor. The employees of our company are part of a team to which the apprentices also belong. Good contact with the master craftsmen and colleagues is important and is facilitated from the very first day. Accompanying a product from planning through to its completion is a matter of course for our apprentices as is taking on responsibility at an early stage. Our company's apprenticeship also involves learning to deal with customers. That's because, increasingly, the job description is developing into a production-oriented service occupation. Early on, the apprentices also become acquainted with the business management aspect of our company through participation in cost estimation and consulting as well as the development of quotations.
There is skilled employment worldwide and young, qualified employees from German skilled crafts and trades are sought-after partners in Europe and developing countries. An apprenticeship in a trade is therefore not only creative and modern, but also offers the best foundation for a self-determined, promising career. Have we aroused your curiosity?

Career Day at Oberlenningen Realschule
On July 19, 2022, our employees Elena Dangel and Stefan Strauch attended the Career Day at Oberlenningen Realschule. Students had the opportunity to choose four out of 40 companies that interested them and engage with them more closely. Elena and Stefan introduced 15 students to the plumbing trade. They began with a small PowerPoint presentation to explain the theoretical aspects, then demonstrated and explained a selection of metal workpieces. Finally, each student was able to choose a sheet of aluminum or titanium zinc in various colors and use it to cut, bend, drill, and rivet a desk organizer.
We are fascinated by this special initiative by Oberlenningen Realschule – it's the right way to guide young people towards skilled trades and connect companies with potential applicants. Many thanks for the excellent organization – we are already looking forward to next year when we will participate again.
“Women within the trade sector“ – an initiative of the Stuttgart Chamber of Crafts
We are happy to support the “women within the trade sector“ initiative of the Stuttgart Chamber of Crafts.
Also, we are glad to have female plumbers on our team, especially when they want to start their apprenticeships.
A positive example is our Franzi, who has just completed her last exams to call herself a qualified plumber.
In the attached campaign videos, Franziska, together with her sister Elena as @die Handwerkschwestern, reports on the apprenticeship as a plumber.
