The close partnership with the vocational school in Domažlice means that the apprentices are given the best possible theoretical and practical preparation for their exams. In František Toman, the plant has its own 'trainer' for the apprentices, someone for them to turn to if they have any questions. In 2015, he was named 'trainer for professional training' by the Czech Ministry of Education and Ministry of Industry and Trade.
In around three years, all three apprentices will have completed their training and will be part of the factory team at Horšovský Týn.
The company is also committed to protecting the environment and supports social organizations that, for instance, make it easier for disabled people to find their first job.
