Review PLMA: Thank you for your visit!

It was a great pleasure to welcome you at our booth and present you our individual and creative product range.

After the conclusion of the presentation at the international trade fair PLMA in Amsterdam (the Netherlands), we draw a positive balance.

During the trade show, we made a lot of interesting contacts and meetings. With our booth and product range, we found a wide acceptance with the trade fair visitors.


Right before the start of the vocational training, Girrbach received a really special award.

On 28th July 2015, the Girrbach Süßwarendekor GmbH was awarded with the cachet “1A Ausgezeichneter Ausbildungsbetrieb” (engl.: A-1 apprenticing company) by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Northern Black Forest. Andreas Strempel, General Manager of Girrbach, and Ina Gauß, Head of HR, gladly accepted the cachet handed-over by Mr. Wittmann of the CCI Northern Black Forest.

The CCI cachet highly values regional apprenticing companies which outstandingly campaign for the promotion of pupils and young professionals beyond statuary requirements.

As an internationally operating medium-sized company the topic “vocational training” is of high importance for Girrbach. That is why professional trainings for “specialist confectionary technology (m/f)” and “industrial management assistant (m/f)” are regularly offered.

It is an utmost concern for Girrbach to offer young people the opportunity of a high-quality education for assuring them the best possible start of their careers.

As Girrbach is not just only an A-1 apprenticing company but also has A-1 trainees, Mr. Wittmann (CCI) personally used the opportunity during the ceremony for handing-over the school certificate of the apprentice Julia Roth. She successfully completed her apprenticeship in confectionary technology and officially is Germany’s third-best in this field now.
