Inaugurated new flight swing
At the end of December we donated 1,000 EURO to the kindergarten in Röslau. A flight swing was bought with that money. It supports a gentle training of abdominal and back muscles. Also the sense of balance is strengthened and the children experience a feeling of floating and weightlessness. The managing director Mr. Willi-Josef Ferfers and the works council chairman Mrs. Nadine Anger spectated this in January.
This kindergarten has up to 74 places for children from 0 to 6 years of age. Integrative places are provided for children with disabilities. These children also enjoy the new swing.
Apprentices introducing themselves
On 1 September an apprentice commenced his training as machine and plant operator at Roeslau Wire GmbH & Co. KG. Mr. Lucas Wölfel was welcomed by 2nd year apprentice Mr. Patrick Schörner. They had a quick snack together, during which he explained the company’s history and philosophy to Mr. Wölfel.
