The Barnstorfer company Barnstorfer GmbH, Short BARKU, has been producing plastic parts for a variety of applications, including the modern barn, for 40 years. Shortly before the summer holidays, the business course of stage 10 of the Christian Hülsmeyer School Barnstorf visited the new production hall in the commercial area of Immenzaun. According to the company management, one of the most modern plants in northern Germany with a high standard of sustainability, taking into account most innovative technology for energy and resource savings.
School and business have been partners for a good six months in the course of the future. The operational survey of the final class offered young people an insight into modern plastics production. They marveled at the precise work flow within the machine park and the faultless uniformity of the plastic parts manufactured in the extrusion process. In a subsequent career orientation phase, the young people were given an overview of the training opportunities at BARKU and asked questions about business management issues.
“For me, the future of the course is to make entrepreneurial practice more tangible and active for students,” sums up Birgit Wohlking, a commercial allrounder for accounting and human resources at BARKU. “We are looking forward to an in-depth visit to the school. In the context of an interactive plan game, commercial decision-making and action processes for young people can be made tangible. ” “And,” she adds, “It would be nice if young people could get excited about the economy in this way.”
