- Tobias Bürger is the best production mechanic in North Rhine-Westphalia
- DEUTZ apprentice honoured at awards ceremony
- The Company has been awarded at the awards ceremony the sixth year in succession
Only a few weeks after the DEUTZ training centre won an award for its excellence from Cologne's Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK), the Company can boast another accolade. DEUTZ apprentice Tobias Bürger was honoured at the 2018 IHK awards ceremony for his outstanding results in the final production mechanic exam. The 21-year-old scored 92 out of a possible 100 points, making him the best apprentice in his profession in North Rhine-Westphalia. He received the award in the presence of state premier Armin Laschet, who attended the event as the guest of honour.
“It is a great honour for us that our apprentice has achieved the highest score in the state and that we can therefore count ourselves among the best in North Rhine-Westphalia. We are very proud of the achievements of our apprentices and our training centre,” said Dr Andreas Strecker, member of the Board of Management for finance, human resources, purchasing and information services. This is the sixth year in succession that the DEUTZ training centre has been awarded at the awards ceremony.
This year, the awards ceremony was hosted by the local Chamber of Industry and Commerce at Motorworld in Cologne, a venue that is close to the apprentice's heart as it houses an area dedicated to DEUTZ's important role in the history of engines.
