Hager Group honours Saarland’s top electrical engineering technicians of 2015

Hager Group welcomed the three best junior electrical engineering technicians of the year to its Blieskastel site on 1st July 2015. Tim Phillip Siebenschuh, Tobias Escher and Philip Merker were commended by the company and the Landesinnung Saarland der Elektrohandwerke (Saarland State Guild of Electrical Engineering Trades) for their outstanding performance in the masters’ examination. They each received a certificate of recognition, a voucher to the value of 150 euros for a Hager Group seminar, and a gift in appreciation of their hard work.

“In a modern world where almost nothing can function without electricity, the role of an electrical engineering technician is increasingly evolving into a high-tech profession subject to huge technical challenges. With this award, we want to show our appreciation and demonstrate once again the close working relationship we have maintained with our tradespeople since Hager Group was founded, as well as the support we have shown them whenever possible,” explains Gregor Wille, key account manager for the electrical trade, who was responsible for the event.

Following the award ceremony and speech by guild chairman Günther Bartruff, who was accompanied by his guild colleagues from the executive board, another highlight of the event came in the form of a tour of the premises with one of the company founders Dr. Oswald Hager and Christian Weinard from the training and information centre. The tour of the production halls and the new research and application centre provided ample opportunity for attendees to learn about the production process and the new, innovative solutions from Hager Group, as well as to talk to experts from the company. Also attending the event from the training sector was Stefan Gerhard, Executive Director of the Saarland chamber of commerce and industry (HWK).

As a successful day came to a close, the tradesmen and Hager Group colleagues were in agreement: the first award ceremony for the best electrical engineering technicians in Saarland most certainly wouldn’t be the last.
