On the home stretch to a successful future

Knapheide place great importance on supporting enthusiastic young people and strengthening the team spirit. The apprentices at Knapheide GmbH spent months planning and building the perfect soapbox car for an apprentice/student project at the trade exhibition "Beckum boomt". The yellow and black soapbox with the name "Ediehpank" competed against 13 other cars, all built by students from Beckum.

The campaign was very successful: The students were able to meet the apprentices at Knapheide GmbH during the event, they had a chance to ask questions and to learn about opportunities for apprenticeships in the company.
