All news

Spring 2023, 13 graduates receive their diplomas. This year, the intake of trainees that began their training during the pandemic have been able to successfully finish laying the foundations for their career.

The 2019 and 2020 apprenticeship started in the fall of that year, under difficult circumstances in the midst of the pandemic. Some offices were empty at the height of the home working period. Reduced points of contact ensured the safety of all employees in Production by avoiding the risk of infection. Despite the pandemic, training remained a priority at Koehler and this meant that 13 apprentices were able to complete their training successfully.


“Our graduates this year began their training under extraordinary circumstances at the height of the pandemic. We would like to thank them all for their dedication and staying power. Together we found a way to make consistently high-quality training possible for all of them during this challenging time. We are delighted that we are now able to hand over these apprentices as qualified professionals to the respective department managers”, says Stefan Grözinger, Head of Training at the Koehler Group.
