Krones AG is proud of its trainees. Out of the 5,000 examinations that the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) in Regensburg for Upper Palatinate/Kelheim conducted in the summer of 2015, the Krones trainees Marco Leidel and Jürgen Scharl are the best in their career categories.
Marco Leidel proved to be the best line mechanic in Bavaria, and, as the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (DIHK) recently announced, now also the best in the whole of Germany. The DIHK’s award ceremony will be held in Berlin on 14 December.
Jürgen Scharl also has a reason to celebrate. With a dream grade of 1.1, he is the best metal-cutting machine operator in the region covered by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Upper Palatinate/ Kelheim.
The fact that Marco Leidel and Jürgen Scharl achieved such outstanding results in their final exams is, of course, a tribute to the teaching skills of their instructors at Krones’ facility in Nittenau, who shepherded them through their three years of training.back
