GIRLS DAY 2024 – We have participated!


Early May we had a fantastic Girls Day at our place. During the Girls’ Day, girls have the opportunity to get a glimpse into technical professions.

The young participants got an exclusive insight into the manufacturing of air rifles and also learned about our training opportunities. It was great to see the enthusiasm and interest – heartfelt thanks for the visit!





Release of our trainees


We are delighted that three of our trainees have recently successfully completed their 3.5-year training and have thus taken an important step in their careers. In addition, one of these three trainees came top of his class in his school education. This was honored in a separate ceremony at the Jakob Preh School.

Our training instructor Jürgen Eyring presented the graduates with their certificates. The management with Thilo Schallenkammer as well as Hans-Hermann and Felix Weihrauch congratulated the three trainees.

We wish them continued success and satisfaction in their respective departments.
