Dietfurt, 27.09.2022. The best graduates of apprenticeship were honoured by the Chamber of Handicrafts Lower Bavaria and Upper Palatinate. One of them was an electronics technician from Töging.

The Chamber awarded 64 craftsmen and craftswomen from all East Bavaria with a certificate of honour for their excellent performance. Maximilian Beer is one of them. As electronics technician for automation, he completed his training at the medium-sized family company Spangler in Töging.

Good frame conditions during apprenticeship

Beer, who started his apprenticeship in 2018, was supported by the good conditions he found in his training company. Already at the beginning he was prepared for the apprenticeship in an intensive training. Regular changes in different departments as well as competent persons to contact are standard at Spangler. Thanks to this formula for success several excellent results could be achieved in the past. Regularly, the Töging company train excellent graduates in different apprenticeships. The last time there was a Chamber winner was in 2009.

Honour by the President of the Chamber of Handicrafts

The certificate was awarded by the President of the Chamber of Handicraft, Jürgen Kilger. In his speech he stressed the importance of the handicraft and trade: ‘Our economic sector is more appreciated again, also because the craft sector has shown its strength during the crisis months and because it kept the region going. People will realise that a career in crafts is worthwhile, especially in these times.” On behalf of the company Spangler, authorized representative Thomas Zenk was honoured for the especially good apprenticeship.

Handicraft with future

Now, Beer is working as a constructing engineer for the electrotechnical engineering of plants and plans plants of all sizes all over the world. “From hydrogen projects in the United States to regenerative drying plants in Egypt, there are always exciting projects”, he describes his working life. As a demanded and highly qualified expert he takes over responsibility for tomorrow’s technology.
