Simply the Best!
JÖRG KLÖSSINGER SMILES BROADLY: After six years, he was once again standing on top of the podium at the German Forklift Driving Championship upon winning back his “German Master” title. He outcompeted 63 drivers who had also qualiﬁed for the championship in Aschaffenburg, Bavaria in September 2017. The drivers demonstrated their skills in various disciplines over a challenging course. But skill alone isn’t enough to secure victory Jörg Klößinger explains: “What’s important is to drive quickly while working precisely and calmly.” Klößinger, a metalworker by trade, has worked as a forklift driver at HELUKABEL in Windsbach for 10 years. “I gained my forklift driving permit while still an apprentice and I really enjoy my job here,” he relates. At the Windsbach plant, Klößinger supplies his colleagues in production with materials and loads the ﬁnished products onto lorries. He doesn’t drive quite so fast doing this as during the championship, but just as doesn’t drive quite so fast doing this as during the championship, but just as safely and skilfully. He was particularly pleased to be congratulated by HELUKABEL’s Managing Director Marc Luksch after his victory: “I am very appreciative of this recognition!“
