Insulation Apprentice Champion to Be Announced at IEX

Insulation Apprentice Champion will be Announced at IEX 2018

On 16th and 17th May the best insulators from nine European countries will meet in Cologne at the leading Insulation trade fair IEX – Insulation Expo Europe to crown the European Champion of the insulation trade. 

Showcasing Skill at Insulation Expo IEX

Insulation Expo Europe provides apprentices with an opportunity to showcase the high standards in insulation and cladding work for cold and thermal insulation as well as acoustic and fire protection.

The championship is organised by FESI (Fédération Européenne des Syndicats d’Entreprises d’Isolation), the umbrella trade association of the European insulation industry. Apprentices from nine nations will compete this year, including teams from Germany, the UK, France, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Poland and Ireland.

The Challenge Ahead

The challenge that will be faced by the best Insulation installers from nine countries involves the lagging of a dummy with a variety of different insulation materials.

FESI general secretary Andreas Gürtler Says

The level of technical expertise at the FESI Insulation Apprentice Championship is extremely high; each nation sends their best insulation apprentices, all of whom prevailed in their respective national competitions as country champions

But the event isn’t all about the fighting spirit – cooperation, mutual understanding and friendship among the competitors play an equally important role
