If there’s a fire, Max is immediately on the spot.
Max Bächer is our young talent in toolmaking. What particularly inspires us about Max is the naturalness with which the likable Helmbrechts local takes on responsibility – both in his training as a toolmaker and in his private life, for example, with his involvement in the youth council at the time or currently in the volunteer fire department. That is why it has always gone without saying for us that Max gets all the flexibility, support and respect he needs from us for his voluntary work and his professional development.

And why toolmaking in particular, Max?
“Precision is right up my alley. It always has been. Then there’s the metal… an incredibly cool material. Everything is doable and malleable, you can clear up a lot of things quickly. In toolmaking, you have to be a worker to shape heavy material using modern technology, but also have the necessary sensitivity, as even the smallest deviations can be crucial.”
Firefighter through and through!
Max often leaves work just to go and work somewhere else. In his spare time, he is involved with the volunteer fire departments in Helmbrechts and Gösmes – and has been for many years. That is why it is important to us and to him that he is able to be fully committed to his volunteering as well as his job.
