The youngsters were thus able to gain an initial up-close impression of the company.

In addition to a tour through the production areas and a visit to the training workshop, the visitors were able to see the development, sales and administration areas of the fan specialist and make initial contacts with the company's trainers.

"We are glad you have decided to pursue training at ebm-papst", said Bernd Ludwig during the closing meeting in the cafeteria in Mulfingen. "ebm-papst offers you many development opportunities, and we will support and help you to the best of our ability", said the ebm-papst Training Manager.

Dr. Bruno Lindl, Managing Director for Research and Development of the ebm-papst group, explained that the current global economic crisis has also impacted ebm-papst. However, optimism prevails that an upturn will gradually begin to be seen in the fourth quarter. "Our activity in a wide variety of industries and our innovation leadership in energy-efficient motors and fans will help us in this regard", says Lindl. He related that about 60 products are currently about to see their market launch.

Chairman of the Works Committee Alexander Kurz expressed his pleasure at the fact that even in the current time, the proportion of trainees has remained consistently high, and that 43 young people are able to begin their training at the fan specialist. "You are our future", he said.

Accepting students into a concrete employment relationship after they complete the training has been a stated goal at ebm-papst as long as the vocational training program has been in existence; in many cases, this involves subsequent further qualification.
