Entreprenuer in training
Gerold Keffers started out in the industry as a driver for a company that builds wine tanks. “I was really fascinated by the industry and always wanted to learn more. When the opportunity arrived, I grabbed the chance to be become a trainee technician and worked my way to the top. Within 5 years I managed to become chief technician and the idea (to own my own business) started growing from there. Since then I have never looked back.”
