As second-best of his apprenticeship class, a special honour was bestowed upon Mr. Daniel Kofer. He was awarded the incentive award by the German National Association of Plastics Processors (GKV) by Ralf Olsen, managing director of pro-K. The award consisted of a certificate and prize money. The award has been given by the Association to the 10 best apprentices of a class since 2001 and has already been granted to employees of the REHAU Group, which includes RAUMEDIC, several times.
Daniel Kofer won out against more than 2,700 apprentices in his class. With a growth of 8.8% in 2011, the plastics industry is an important economic sector and will continue to require employees with a high level of qualification, stressed Olsen. In addition to the excellent performance by the apprentices, a successful apprenticeship further requires high-quality training in companies and vocational schools. The incentive award therefore also recognises the efforts of RAUMEDIC and the vocational school Rehau, Olsen said before handing one certificate each to instructors and headmasters>
The award was presented during a reception at RAUMEDIC, which was attended by many guests of honour. The mayors of the townships of Helmbrechts and Münchberg, Stefan Pöhlmann and Thomas Fein, as well as deputy district administrator Alexander Ebert, were delighted with the distinction for Kofer and stressed the importance of qualified employees in the region.
The chairman of RAUMEDIC AG, Martin Bayer, congratulated the award winner for the great result, handed him a present and thanked instructors and parents for their wonderful support.
