We train - Weinzierl has a trainee

As an innovative high-tech enterprise, we at Weinzierl Engineering also put much emphasis on skilled recruits - and with increasing company size, it was only a matter of time until we - as acknowledged training company - would welcome our first official trainee. Since 01 September 2013  a prospective electronic technician for devices and systems is working with us and will support us for the next three and a half years - and as you can see, he's already keenly working in our workshop.

Electronics technicians for devices and systems control and monitor processes in manufacturing and maintenance of information-and communication technology as well as medical equipment. They create production documents, set up manufacturing and testing machines and play an important role in quality assurance. In addition, they take care of the procurement of components and equipment, and support technicians or engineers in the implementation of orders. They install and configure programs or operating systems, conduct component tests, develop equipment documentation, or create layouts. Also repairs fall within their remit. In customer service and in the repair of electronic equipment they search for the sources of error and change defective parts. They also advise clients and users.


Company solar system and employee anniversary

Summer, sun , energy - this year's summer means well. Apart from the good weather, Weinzierl Engineering in Burgkirchen / Alz  had some more reasons to celebrate . A new solar plant was successfully commissioned on the roof of the company and set into operation after a short installation time. In addition, a long-time employee was able to celebrate his tenth anniversary, which was celebrated together with the entire staff and their families in the yard of the company with a summer BBQ in glorious weather.

With the power of the sun: with a peak power of 12,000 watts generated by 69 solar panels, the new system "Made in Germany " on the roof of Weinzierl Engineering in Achatz 3 provides plenty of power . With good weather not only the entire energy needs of the company can be met but the surplus generated electricity can be fed into the public grid . Even under slightly clouded weather conditions, the system still works almost "energy covering" if the brightness is sufficient so there is no need to purchase "external" power. "In addition to numerous energy-saving measures in the office building and an exemplary behavior of our employees with respect to the individual energy consumption, with our photovoltaic system we take another major step towards a more environmentally friendly company," said company president Dr. Thomas Weinzierl.

A decade at Weinzierl: On 1 September 2013, there were exactly 10 years to the day that one of the first employees work at Weinzierl Engineering - this was another good reason to celebrate as part of the Weinzierl Summer BBQ on 5 September to build the large grill and picnic tables in the courtyard of the office building. The weather was perfect and so people enjoyed eating, drinking and chatting up late into the night.
