In 2022, 79 young skilled workers successfully completed their dual training or dual studies at the MAPAL sites in Aalen, Pforzheim, Winterlingen, Altenstadt and Ehrenfriedersdorf. The Chambers of Industry and Commerce awarded prizes to twelve graduates, including one who was the best industrial mechanic in the state.

In addition to twelve award-winning graduates, a further five received commendations from the Ostwürttemberg Chamber of Industry and Commerce for good exam performance. All 79 trainees at MAPAL locations in Germany passed their final exams with flying colours. Which shows how great the motivation of the young people is, who, like their trainers, faced particular challenges with the corona pandemic. State-of-the-art training facilities and qualified trainers ensure the high quality of training at MAPAL.

Dr Jochen Kress, President of the MAPAL Group, congratulated the 42 graduates at the headquarters in Aalen and presented the certificates at a ceremony. He encouraged the young people to bring their newly acquired knowledge into the company and to work on the future topics of the MAPAL Group. New technologies such as e-mobility, the development of new business areas and digitalisation offer the young people exciting opportunities and plenty of scope for professional development.

In addition to Tobias Ilg, who was named the best industrial mechanic in Baden-Württemberg by the Ostwürttemberg Chamber of Industry and Commerce, five other graduates completed their training at the Aalen plant with an overall grade of “very good”. Among them is Lena Klaus, who, after her training as an industrial clerk, is now completing a dual course of study in business administration.
