Anniversary Visit from Kentucky

For the tenth time, TENTE-ROLLEN Germany welcomed school pupils from Kentucky, USA.

This year, the partnership between TENTE and the US state of Kentucky, which is co-sponsored by the TENTE Foundation, is celebrating its tenth anniversary: In June around 25 school students visited TENTE-ROLLEN in Wermelskirchen, where they were heartily welcomed by the Managing Director Peter Fricke.

With a quote from a former US President, he quickly swept away any barriers and prejudices which might exist between the two nations. Trainees in the first and second year of training then took the school students on a tour of the company in two groups. This was a challenge, as all explanations had to be in English. But the final language barriers had certainly been overcome at the latest when everyone had lunch together.
The result: Once more a successful event for all those involved which promoted the contact and exchange between Germany and the USA.
