Günter Schwank Award 2023: The best of the best come from ARBURG!

The best of the best in Germany have completed their training at ARBURG with dream grades: Two former trainees, Frank Kössig and Dennis Sagel, received the important Günter Schwank Award 2023, which industry association pro-K presented to a total of 13 talented young professionals in the plastics processing industry. pro-K Interim Managing Director Sven Weihe presented the awards at a small ceremony at ARBURG on 20 November.

Outstanding achievements during the ARBURG training programme

Sven Weihe congratulated Frank Kössig and Dennis Sagel on their outstanding achievements during their training and the two received certificates, prize money of 1,000 euros each, a mobility voucher, a subscription to trade magazine "Kunststoffe" and membership of the "Club of the Best". This involves regular invitations to a networking day at K, the world's leading trade fair for the plastics and rubber industry.
Frank Kössig had already been honoured as the best process mechanic in plastics and rubber technology in Germany by the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK) in Berlin in May, while his fellow competitor Dennis Sagel scored just one point less (98 and 97 out of a possible 100 points respectively). In any case, the two award winners have found their dream jobs. Both are now responsible for turnkey systems at ARBURG.
