27. May 2019

Marius Wissing, a young process engineer at Bischof + Klein in Lengerich, is amongst the top three in his year throughout Germany. He has now been awarded the GKV incentive prize for his outstanding training qualification.

This is awarded annually by the German Association of Plastics Converters (GKV) to honour the ten best plastic and rubber technology process engineer trainees. "We are proud of you", stated Dr. Tobias Lührig, CEO of the film and packaging specialist, at the award ceremony.

"Each top trainee is backed by a top company. It is important to us to pay tribute to the individual prize-winners and companies on site and to present the certificates in a celebratory setting", explained Ralf Olsen, who is responsible for the field of training policy and vocational training within the GKV. Like Yvonne Kramer and Dr. Lorena Fricke of the German Association for Plastics Packaging and Film (IK), he had travelled to Lengerich specifically for this event.

During the award ceremony, Marius Wissing was additionally presented with a one-year subscription for the specialist journal "Kunststoffe" as well as his certificate and the prize money, the presence of his trainer Peter Steinrötter and the head of personnel Michael Beidermühle. His membership of the "Club of the Best" will enable him to make use of the incentive prize-winners' network. He is now working in the blown film extrusion department at B+K.

Bischof + Klein is one of the biggest employees in the regions around the German plants in Lengerich and Konzell, and offers training in around ten different professions. The varied training course for plastic and rubber technology process engineers takes three years. Various further training courses offering opportunities for promotion are subsequently possible. Last year, around 2,360 trainees embarked on this course in Germany. At present, Bischof + Klein alone is training a total of 32 young people to become process engineers for plastic and rubber technology. Three of them are undertaking a dual study programme to become plastics processing engineers. The process engineer training forms part of the practical section of the study programme.
