Girl power at Flottweg – Girls’ Day 2022
After a two-year break due to the pandemic, Girls' Day was held again at Flottweg on April 28, 2022. This nationwide campaign aims to get young women and girls interested in occupational fields that they might not initially consider when choosing a vocation.
At Flottweg, a total of 12 girls, each with a passion for technology was given an insight into the professions of industrial mechanics and mechatronics and their associated tasks. Girls' Day has taken place at Flottweg for more than 10 years and offers the opportunity to inspire young women to learn about mechanical and plant engineering.
A varied and informative program awaited the participants at Flottweg: First, training manager Daniel Wimmer presented the working world at Flottweg to give the girls an initial insight into the world of separation technology and mechanical engineering. Afterward, the interested parties learned more about the vocational training to become an industrial mechatronics technicians and were introduced to Flottweg's internal training workshop. The young ladies were also able to demonstrate their craftsmanship with their own small project, the manufacturing of a ballpoint pen holder. The participants were able to gain their first experience on various metalworking machines under the guidance of their instructor and were able to carry out the final assembly of the components.
Training manager Daniel Wimmer is once again enthusiastic about this year's day of action: "Girls' Day is a really great opportunity for young girls and women to learn about new career opportunities and gain their first experience in particular in the technical field."
