Encouraging young people in the Swiss mechanical engineering industry is one of the key priorities of Josef Binkert AG and the Josef Binkert AG Stiftung. For more than 14 years, we have been supporting the Swiss trade championships of multidisciplinary engineers VET. We are happy to continue this commitment. Josef Binkert AG provided two CMZ TA15 Y-640 CNC lathes and two conventional Colchester Master 3250 VS lathes to the 2018 Swiss championships free of charge. In order to give the participants the best possible opportunity to prepare for the challenges of the competition, they were given intensive training on our premises in Wallisellen.
The charitable Josef Binkert AG Stiftung also provided the prizes for the winners: in line with the aims of the foundation, the winners from all three disciplines were given funding towards future tertiary level training to the value of CHF 13'000 each. We would like to congratulate the winners and wish them every success in the future.
