Voith Apprentice Finishes as Best Trainee Nationwide in His Field
Stefan Wöhrle is delighted about his success: "I am really happy with this award. I absolutely love my job and Voith has given me optimum support. My apprenticeship was brilliant!" Erwin Krajewski, Manager Technical Apprenticeships at Voith is equally proud: "Stefan Wöhrle's award is also an award for the apprenticeship scheme at Voith. With his diligence and his proficiency he really deserved this prize."
Technical draughtsmen such as Stefan Wöhrle plan and design components and sub-assemblies for machines and create drawings of these parts with the help of software and 3 D programs. After completing their apprenticeship most of them work in the product development sector, where they are involved from the early design stage up to the actual commissioning of the product. In the course of a structural reform of apprenticeships the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry has replaced the training program for technical draughtsmen by a curriculum under the heading 'technical product designers.'
Voith sets standards in the markets energy, oil & gas, paper, raw materials and transport & automotive. Founded in 1867, Voith employs more than 42,000 people, generates € 5.7 billion in sales, operates in about 50 countries around the world and is today one of the biggest family-owned companies in Europe.
