This year’s apprentices and their instructors from the FOS headoffice and the Saxony branch, recently travelled to the leading international exhibition for the roofing and carpentry trade in Stuttgart. The trip to the trade show was an initiative to get to know each other more and for the new generation to gain a deeper insight into the roofing industry and everyday work of the trade professionals.
The group ventured to different exhibitor stands as part of a team quiz rally. Of course, a visit to the FOS stand was also on the agenda. Everyone was keen to see how the FOS products and services were presented and how the exposé was perceived by the visitors. After dinner and an overnight stay in Stuttgart, the group returned home satisfied. The apprentices summarised their impressions and the gathered information in PowerPoint presentations. Justin Wiest, who is a trainee in warehouse logistics, had to say this of the excursion: "The trip to Stuttgart was so worthwhile; it was very informative and anything but boring.”
