GIRLS DAY APRIL 2016 | GLASS MINDELHEIM
At this year's GIRLS DAY Glass was once again pleased to welcome many interested pupils from the Maria-Ward secondary school in Mindelheim. Ms Elisabeth Bichler (top right in the photo), Mr Gordian Schalk (second from top right) and Ms Ramona Längst (top left in the photo) looked forward to the keen interest, presented the training courses we offer and answered all questions. After the obligatory tour through our precast concrete works, our guests paid a visit to the large building site of the GABOR company close by in Allgäuer Strasse in Mindelheim. Here they could watch prefabricated concrete components being assembled in a "live performance". The site supervisor, Mr Gschwilm, briefly described the activities on the building site. A short walk away we could then inspect the recently completed B6 office tower of the GROB company in Mindelheim whose shell had been constructed by Glass. The building's architect, Mr Josef Deggendorfer from GROB, also had the honour of welcoming the young ladies and giving a brief talk about the new, modern building. We would like to thank Mr Deggendorfer and Grob for his help. The view from the 50-meter high office tower onto the city of Mindelheim towards noon was the highlight concluding the event.
We will naturally be participating in GIRLS DAY again next year. All pupils who are interested are very welcome to attend!
TRAINING CERTIFICATE FOR THE PROMOTION OF YOUNG TALENT 2015/2016 | GLASS LEIPZIG
"25 years ago we already started to train reinforced concrete workers, skilled structural engineering workers and office clerks, " says Managing Director Frank Sallowsky. "In the meantime more than 100 young people have successfully completed an apprenticeship at our company. Many of them have later continued their education and been given responsible positions as foremen, site supervisors or site managers handling challenging building projects nationwide.“
Glass is currently training six apprentices. Four further contracts for the coming apprenticeship year have already been signed, including one contract for a cooperative course. "This means that the youngster is trained as a reinforced concrete worker and at the same time studies civil engineering at the Leipzig University of Applied Sciences. These are the best preconditions for being able to work in the field of site management later on," emphasises the Managing Director.
All apprentices who have successfully completed their course have been taken on by the company in recent years. "This is intended to make up for the departure of older workers who have retired."
PAULANER BUILDING SITE CUP
On Saturday, 13 June 2015, a football tournament was held at the Paulaner building site in Langwied where many companies involved in the building work were represented with their own football team. Glass also entered a team for the "Building Site Cup". Everyone played with much enthusiasm and commitment. Although our team did not manage to rank in any of the highest places, the focus was on fun and enjoyment. PAULANER itself took care of the catering.
We thank everyone at PAULANER and all those from the organisation team of Ingenieurbüro Kieltsch.
