Brunner is pleased to welcome over 200 apprentices! – Brunner freut sich über 200 Auszubildende!

Wie jedes Jahr hat die Schokoladenformenfabrik, HANS BRUNNER GmbH in Glonn, zum 01. September ihre neuen Lehrlinge begrüßt. Doch dieses Jahr gibt es einen besonderen Grund zur Freude. Mit dem Eintritt ins Berufsleben der neuen Auszubildenden hat BRUNNER nun über 200 junge Menschen eingestellt.

Bereits vor 78 Jahren wurde der erste Werkzeugmacher ausgebildet. Auch aktuell bildet BRUNNER diesen Beruf, jetzt als Feinwerkmechaniker bekannt, noch aus. Dieser technisch vielseitige Beruf ermöglicht ein breites Tätigkeitsfeld, welches sowohl das Konstruieren an Computern, das manuelle Arbeiten mit Metall, aber auch das Programmieren hochtechnologischer Maschinen beinhaltet.

Durch viele Investitionen und Innovationen konnte schon bald der Beruf des Verfahrensmechanikers für Kunststoff- und Kautschuktechnik bei Brunner erlernt werden. In dieser technisch geprägten Lehre wird man zum Experten und Programmierer für Spritzgussmaschinen, Handhabungsroboter und Prozessautomatisierung ausgebildet.

BRUNNER wurde durch seine familiäre Atmosphäre rasch zu einem beliebten Ausbildungsbetrieb und recht schnell wurde die 100er-Marke an erfolgreich ausgebildeten Gesellen geknackt. Die 101. Auszubildende kam 1988 als Lehrling im kaufmännischen Bereich in die Firma. Sie war somit die erste Industriekauffrau „made by Brunner“ und ist auch heute noch im Betrieb beschäftigt. Seitdem durchliefen ca. alle zwei Jahre neue Gesichter die kaufmännische, vielseitige Ausbildung bei Brunner. Neben den kaufmännischen Gebieten werden auch Einblicke in die technischen Bereiche vermittelt.

Brunner sieht seine Auszubildenden als Investition für die Zukunft und bildet die heranwachsenden Fachkräfte mit viel Engagement und Sorgfalt aus. Das zeigen auch über die Jahre mehrfache Auszeichnungen unserer Azubis als Jahrgangsbeste.

This year, as in every year, Hans Brunner GmbH welcomed its new apprentices to its factory in Glonn, Bavaria, on 1 September. In 2020, however, there's an even better reason to celebrate than usual. With these new apprentices who are just setting out on their career paths, Brunner has now appointed more than 200 young people.

We trained our first toolmaker 78 years ago. Even today, Brunner still trains apprentices in the same career, although they are now known as precision machinists. This technologically varied career offers a wide range of activities, covering everything from computer-based design and manual metalwork through to the programming of state-of-the-art machines.

Thanks to some major investment and a lot of innovations, Brunner will soon be offering apprentices the chance to train as process mechanics for plastics and rubber technology. In this largely technical apprenticeship, trainees will become all-round experts in and skilled programmers of injection moulding machines, handling robots and process automation technology.

Thanks to its family atmosphere, Brunner rapidly became a popular training workplace, quickly achieving the milestone of 100 successfully qualified apprentices. The 101st apprentice joined the company’s commercial department as a student in 1988. She was the first industrial business management assistant to be  ‘made by Brunner’ and is still with the company today. Since then, new faces have joined Brunner’s varied commercial apprenticeship programme every two years or so. As well as learning about the commercial side of the business, they also gain insights into its technical departments.

Brunner sees its apprentices as an investment in the future, which is why it puts so much dedication and care into training the experts of tomorrow. The fact that our apprentices have so often been recognised for coming top of the class over the years bears proud witness to this commitment.

Even during the coronavirus crisis, it's extremely important that the training of our apprentices should go ahead as planned. Which is why our apprentices are still being trained to make and "break the mould", even under the hygiene measures that are currently necessary.

So, the Hans Brunner company extends a warm welcome to our new apprentices and wishes them all the best for the start of their careers.

The Fipan fair is taking place in Brazil from 19.07. - 22.07.22. We are looking forward to participating together with our Brazilian colleagues! Free tickets for the fair are available for the first 20 persons who send an email to with the subject line: "Free tickets Fipan 2022"! More information about the programme can be found here.

Our subsidiary BRUNNER DO BRASIL has been in existence for more than two years now. Since the early years coincided with the pandemic, getting started was very challenging. Since then, however, there have been a large number of joint projects and the cooperation between specialist departments from both countries is also working extremely well. Read more about the benefits of the cooperation.

Have you ever been annoyed by the fact that delivery times are so long and freight costs so high? Of course, this is especially true for customers in non-European countries. BRUNNER intends to tackle this problem with a new project.

Aeschbach is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. We would like to offer our sincere congratulations and are delighted that Jürg Rogenmoser, the Managing Director of Aeschbach Chocolatier, agreed to be interviewed by BRUNNER.

Here you can watch the Interview of Jürgen Rogenmoser:

Would you like to produce hollow figures yourself?  Or would you like to produce more chocolate Easter bunnies at short notice and you don't have enough production capacity? BRUNNER will be happy to help! We can lend you two centrifugal machines, each with 25 different centrifugal moulds, to increase your productivity or so that you can try this system out.

Gulfood took place from 13 - 17 February in Dubai. BRUNNER was there with two of our representatives on the stand of our new sales partner Aramtec. Here you can read what benefits this brings, especially for customers in the United Arab Emirates.

January of this year sees BRUNNER start a long-term research project with external partners. The aim of this project is to establish a recycling procedure that receives EU certification, so that moulds certified for use for contact with foodstuffs can be produced from used chocolate moulds.

2022 marks a milestone in the partnership between BRUNNER and our subsidiary company Brunner do Brasil. Here you can read what benefits this brings, especially for customers in Brazil and South America.

In one of our recent newsletters we presented BRUNNER’s new universal frame. As well as this universal frame, there is also now another possibility for manufacturing very small series.
