Operations: Ulrich Gassner-Speckmoser

My tasks include the independent planning, implementation and tracking of technical projects, optimization and standardization of workplaces in production, as well as management and division of internal and external auxiliary companies. The apprenticeship at AHT as a mechanical engineer prepared me excellently for my current activities in the field of industrial engineering. The modern machine park of the AHT training workshop is an absolute highlight in the training! The completed LAP was the starting signal for my professional development, first at the evening HTL and now at the FH for building technology.
