Koenig and Bauer (UK) Ltd. has taken a step forward in planning for the future by appointing Aidan Knight as an apprentice electromechanical engineer.
Aidan joined the business in August and will initially attend training at the EEF Technology Centre in Birmingham for 12 months before combining his second year working in the field on service calls and at the Technical Centre studying for Mechantronics Multiskilled Maintenance NVQ. He will also spend considerable time training at Koenig & Bauer Sheetfed manufacturing facility in Radebeul, Germany.
Koenig and Bauer Service Director Peter Banks states: “We are delighted to welcome Aidan to our team. The engineering sector, like other industries, needs to invest in the next generation to address what could be a significant skills shortage in years to come.” He continues: “With Aidan’s appointment and the skills he will gain we have taken another step forward in building for the future.”
