In 2019, we were again a cooperation partner in the regional inventor competition “Kreative Köpfe” (creative minds). This year, 37 pupils from nine schools developed innovative ideas and then realised the prototypes. The award ceremony took place on 08.05.2019 in Bad Mergentheim.
A new, larger nitrogen tank system has been in operation at PALUX since the beginning of May. The previous tank, which had a capacity of approx. 3,000 kg, was put into well-deserved retirement after more than 20 years of reliable service.
The replacement took place on 07. and 08.05.2019 using two heavy-duty crane trucks. First of all the old tank plant – which was subject to considerable wear and tear due to wind and weather – was dismantled and transported away. Afterwards the new nitrogen tank of the company Linde was installed.
With a capacity of approx. 12,000 kg of liquid nitrogen, the new plant not only offers a larger capacity, but also a higher security of supply thanks to state-of-the-art technology. For example, the integrated remote monitoring function enables monitoring and planning of the filling of the tank system.
After completion of the conversion work, the general commissioning and the safety instructions, gas could be taken from the new tank within a short time. Although some smaller works are still on the agenda in the next weeks, PALUX would like to thank all participants for the speedy and smooth implementation.
Also in 2019 we are represented again at the education fair in Lauda-Königshofen with an information booth. You will find us on Friday, 24th and Saturday, 25th May 2019 in the sports hall at stand B 12. Come by and be informed about our apprenticeship offers and study opportunities as well as careers in technical, commercial and service-oriented professions.
As already in the last years, PALUX was again represented in 2019 at the Sterne-Cup for Stars Chefs and the Gastronomy Ski World Cup at the Idalp in Ischgl. Our PALUX team was responsible for the race catering of the participants on the days of the event as usual – with the best support of the Trofana Royal Ischgl kitchen team. In addition, a great sporting success was achieved: our Export Sales Manager for Switzerland, Austria & Liechtenstein, Robby Kocon, took first place among snowboarders in the supplier category!
At this year's INTERNORGA, the leading trade fair for the out-of-home market, we presented a newly designed exhibition stand with a modern and inviting look. This caused great enthusiasm among our employees and partners as well as our visitors and customer.
In addition to numerous dates such as trade fairs, customer workshops and kitchen instructions, our PALUX application consultants naturally also take the time for the traditional staff cooking. This took place on 02.04.2019 in our training center “Praxis-Forum”.
On 23.03.2019 the annual trainee excursion took place, of which our trainee Selina Schütz reports in the following.
