AN APPRENTICESHIP AT RECARO AUTOMOTIVE SEATING IN KIRCHHEIM

What exactly are the tasks of a vehicle interior designer? RECARO Automotive Seating is answering this question during the exhibition “Forum für Talente” taking place from July 4th to August 4th all around Kirchheim inner city. The project especially covers apprenticeships that aren’t too well-known. Ten trainees from local companies have been interviewed and are giving an insight in their interesting work environment. Pictures and reports on their individual experiences: www.forumfuertalente.de.

“We are happy to support this project and to present our vocational training as a vehicle interior designer, which is less well-known than others – but surely as interesting, challenging and diverse,” said Markus Kussmaul, Executive Director of the Adient specialty seating group and responsible for the worldwide business of RECARO Performance Car Seating. “Right from the beginning our apprentices have the chance to fully participate and are part of a global leading company, setting standards worldwide.”

Since the plant has been founded more than 300 young people have been trained at RECARO Automotive Seating in Kirchheim. For young adults planning on being a vehicle interior designer, the manufacturer of premium seats is the only company in the region offering this option. Skilled craftsmanship, diligence, three-dimensional imagination and having fun handling numbers and figures – only some of the talents demanded.

The apprenticeship is based on a dual system. Every two weeks the trainees are visiting theory lessons at the Kerschensteinerschule in Stuttgart-Feuerbach. After the vocational training there is the possibility of a further training as an Interior Designer or to certify as an Industrial Master. In Kirchheim there is also the opportunity of a vocational training as an Industrial Clerk: during the apprenticeship the trainees get to know the areas of management, distribution and logistics.

TEAM S.L. TRUCKSPORT 30 TOOK THE CHALLENGE TRUCK-GRAND-PRIX 2017

The Int. ADAC Truck-Grand-Prix 2017 truly was a challenge: Both the teams on the racing circuit and the about 115,000 spectators had to face weather typical for the Eifel region. To flee the rain, a visit at the RECARO Automotive Seating booth right next to the driver’s camp was worth it. During the three-day event fans could learn more about the products, try the seats and of course stock up on some RECARO Automotive Seating fan articles.

On Sunday you had to get in line to snap up an autograph of Sascha Lenz, truck racing pilot of team S.L. Trucksport 30. Since this season RECARO Automotive Seating supports the 30-year-old, starting in a RECARO Pro Racer SPG racing shell. Despite difficult weather conditions, the team managed to get fifth and sixth place on Saturday. Unfortunately, Sascha and his team lost streak after a promising start on Sunday: heavy rain made it hard for all the participants, but S.L. Trucksport 30s MAN-Truck was turned by a competitor, fighting for second place. Sascha managed to get back to twelfth position at least. And as if this wasn’t enough the second race of the day had to be cancelled: a Truck participating in the Mittelrhein-Cup had lost Diesel and the circuit couldn’t be cleaned on time.

„Of course it’s sad to look back on the weakest results of this season. Nürburging is like home to me and here are most of my fans. I would have liked to offer them more of a show and especially a fourth race – unfortunately it wasn’t possible to start again. But there are plenty of races lying ahead of us and I am sure there will be less bad-luck in the future,” said Sascha Lenz, despite some setbacks looking ahead motivated and optimistic. At the FIA rating he is currently on seventh place.
