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.
Our daughters – the @handwerk.schwestern at Sat 1 Frühstücksfernsehen.
On April 24, 2023, our two daughters - @handwerk.schwestern - were invited to Sat 1 Frühstücksfernsehen in Berlin to engage in a dialogue about craftsmanship, their profession as plumbers, and their intention to rekindle society's passion for craftsmanship. Alongside the hosts Alina Merkau and Benjamin Bieneck, they discussed their chosen career paths in craftmanship, the underlying causes of the skilled labor shortage, and the possible ways to address it. Furthermore, they shed light on their Instagram account, @handwerk.schwestern, through which they aim to inspire society with pictures and videos of their everyday work in our plumbing business, especially to normalize women in the craft industry. The Teckbote (Text in German) and the Chamber of Crafts also reported on the appearance of the Handwerkschwestern on the morning show. We are proud of our daughters, Elena and Franzi, apprentice plumber and master's student, as well as ambassadors for craftmanship.

Congratulations to Elena Dangel on her Bachelor of Arts in business administration with a focus on handcraft
We congratulate our daughter Elena Dangel on her Bachelor's degree in business administration with a focus on handcraft. As with many other students, it was not easy to stay focused, especially during the last two years, due to the lack of face-to-face classes, numerous additional homework assignments and the general uncertainty. On Sept. 30, 2022, Elena officially received her certificate and it was time to celebrate. Congratulations! Now she can fully concentrate on her plumber training. Even during her studies, Elena was always busy helping out on construction sites or in the workshop. Good luck in the future.
New sheet metal roofs for the state water supply system
In late summer/fall we started our project for the state water supply right in our hometown. In 2 sections the sheet metal roofs of the pumping stations were renewed. Here we went deeper and deeper into the forest, but with a beautiful view on the whole town of Oberlenningen – something you don’t see every day. The transport of the 12-meter-long sheet metal panels on partially very steep forest paths was complex and exciting. Firstly, the old sheet metal panels were dismantled. Afterwards the wooden formwork was rebuilt and then the new Uginox sheets were installed using the standing seam system. At the end, securants were installed on the roofs.
Welcoming high school graduate Laura Wahl to the start of her training as a plumber
We are glad to officially welcome Laura as a new apprentice plumber in our company. Even before she graduated from high school in the summer of 2022, she did an internship with us and has been enthusiastically working with us during her vacations. She sets an example that it is possible to start a craft apprenticeship even with a high school diploma. Excellent and good luck!
Dangel metal panel facade in wood optics
We had the order for the cladding of parts of the facade of a nursing home in Pforzheim with our Dangel-Metall panel system. It was special that the panels should be made of sheet metal in wood optics. Since individual sheets were very long, three scaffolding levels were needed in some cases. Additionally, we attached downpipes and installed the parapet cover.
Franziska and Elena Dangel had the honor of working in front of this backdrop, together with the workwear company Würth Modyf, on a shoot for the master story of their new catalog. Würth Modyf accompanied the two for one day on the construction site and one day at our headquarter in Oberlenningen.
Impressions: A festive evening for the winners (Stuttgart Chamber of Crafts)
On 8 October 2021 - organised by the Stuttgart Chamber of Crafts - the 60 best of exame craftsmen and women in the region were honoured. We were very happy that Elena and Franziska Dangel were allowed to be part of the event as speakers. In a 15-minute presentation, they introduced their path into the crafts sector and used various pictures from their everyday work to explain plumbing. In line with the theme of the evening "#getinspired - be fresh and digital", the two also presented their Instagram channel @handwerk.schwestern and other interesting profiles from the crafts sector in dialogue with presenter Martin Hoffmann. It is important to Franzi and Elena to highlight that not only men, but also women can do well in the crafts sector.

Women within the trade sector
On the 19th of September 2020, the "Tag Des Handwerks" took place.
In this context, apprentices with extraordinary carrier paths were introduced.
It is exceptional that women take on the challenge to become a plumber or simply work within the plumbing sector.
Therefore, Hannah Waltersberger (Stuttgarter Zeitung) interviewed Franziska and Elena Dangel on this topic.
„Die Handwerkschwestern“ promotes that more women choose a carrier within the trade sector.

Lust auf Bad
A bathroom is more than just a room with WC, shower, sink and bathtub. Good bathrooms are places of refuge with high recreational value; they are sources of well-being and an expression of quality of life. In order to achieve all this, bathrooms must be meticulously planned and executed by professionals. Through our many customer consultations, we have learned how difficult the decisions can be. We’ve made it our task to ensure that your bathroom both performs and pleases for many years to come. That’s why extensive bathroom planning and comprehensive sampling is so important. The following examples should serve as an inspiration and illustrate how individual visions of life can be reflected in the bathrooms of their owners. Allow yourself to be inspired and contact us for an appointment to begin designing your personal bathroom.
