RHEINZINK-trainees meet Ulrich Grillo for dialogue in Berlin
Right at the start of the new training year all trainees of the GRILLO GROUP took part in an excursion to become better acquainted with one another. More than 50 apprentices and trainers from the industrial and the commercial field travelled to the German capital of Berlin. RHEINZINK was represented by twenty of them. RHEINZINK is the largest subsidiary of the GRILLO GROUP which is located in Duisburg.
Apart from activities like a sight-seeing tour, a guided tour through the Reichstag and a visit to the Museum of East Germany, there was another special highlight. The trainees visited the President of the BDI (Federal Association of the German Industry) Ulrich Grillo.
GRILLO-Werke AG and Ulrich Grillo – Do they have something in common? Of course!
In addition to his function as the President of the BDI, Ulrich Grillo is also the chairman of the management board of the family-owned enterprise GRILLO-Werke AG. Until 2009 he was also the speaker of the management board of RHEINZINK. Accordingly, it was logical that “his” trainees from RHEINZINK visited him. Ulrich Grillo offered an insight into the demanding tasks of his BDI activities and answered a lot of interesting questions. Finally, the Berlin excursion ended with a group photo in front of the Brandenburger Gate.
