Technical Vocations in the Spotlight: Girls' Day at Werner & Mertz

27 Apr 2017 - Mainz - Company-News

On Girls' Day 11 pupils from the fifth to ninth grade tried out different technical jobs – mechatronics engineer, electronics technician and industrial mechanic – at the family-run company Werner & Mertz of Mainz.

The girls first got a close look at how sustainable Frosch products are manufactured in the Mainz plant. Later they completed hands-on tasks in the Werner & Mertz training workshop. Under the direction of Technical Training Manager Ralf Zimmermann, the girls tested their skills in process control by making a circuit which they later put into operation.
