Every year, the Ulm Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) honours outstanding achievements in the field of training and further education with the "Best of ..." event. Also in 2021 the event could be held in hybrid form on 12 November with 450 guests from politics, society and economy in the congress centre of Ulm. 800 additional guests participated via live stream to meet the current corona requirements.
Among the successful prize winners were two trainees from the BLANK-Group: Marietta Müller as a machine and plant operator and Timo Scherb as an industrial mechanic. For their very good performance they were given an award by IHK president Dr. Jan Stefan Roell and the managing director of IHK Ulm Mrs. Petra Engstler-Karrasch.
In his speech Dr. Roell praised the commitment of the companies and vocational schools as well as the achievements of the graduates, especially under the prevailing pandemic conditions and the challenges they face. Christian Gaupp, who as head of the BLANK Academy is responsible for training in the company, was happy for the trainees: "I congratulate Marietta and Timo most sincerely on this outstanding achievement! We are very honoured that trainees from our company are often among the award winners. This shows the quality of our training and that we see the development of specialists and leaders as an important key task.“ Christian Gaupp himself started his career with an apprenticeship at BLANK and is now a member of the management team. In the past three years, 8 apprentices have already received the "Best of ..." award from the IHK Ulm. "We would like to increase this number even more in the coming years," explains Christian Gaupp with a smile, "We have laid the foundation for this with the training concept we have developed over the years."
