European insulation championship in Cologne
The FESI Insulation Apprentice Championship took place on 16 and 17 May at IEX - Insulation Expo Europe.
The FESI (Fédération Européenne des Syndicats d’Entreprises d’Isolation) is the umbrella organisation of the European insulation trade association and will be a corporation partner of IEX – Insulation Expo Europe. The FESI will support the IEX Europe in the future in terms of the internationalization and composition of a professional program.
A good apprenticeship is essential in the industry. This shows us the FESI Apprentice Championship, which takes place at the IEX Europe again in 2018. The best insulators from nine European countries, including teams from Germany, the UK, France, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Poland and Ireland, met in Cologne to crown the European champion of the insulation trade. The aim is to promote the high standards of the insulation and cover work.
Their task: lag a dummy with a variety of different insulation materials. “The level of technical expertise at the FESI Insulation Apprentice Championship is extremely high; each nation sends their best insulation apprentices, all of whom prevailed in their respective national competitions as country champions”, says FESI general secretary Andreas Gürtler. “But the event isn’t all about the fighting spirit – cooperation, mutual understanding and friendship among the competitors play an equally important role”, adds Gürtler.
But the event isn’t all about the fighting spirit – cooperation, mutual understanding and friendship among the competitors play an equally important role. The event rotates locations among FESI member countries and is supposed to take place during the same period as the FESI General Assembly whenever possible.
