Heating installer Elias Reber is the proud winner of the 2017 Debrunner Acifer Trophy. The young trade champion from Wasen (BE) was able to prevail over all other Swiss masters, achieving the highest score in the overall competition. To recognise his achievement, Debrunner Acifer, Gold Sponsor of the SwissSkills team, has handed Reber the keys to the Swiss Master Audi A1, which is his to drive for the year to come.

At the 2017 SwissSkills Competitions, the top Swiss vocational talents proved once again that they can deliver first-rate performance. Talented apprentices in 27 different occupations put their skills to the test, completing challenging tasks typical for their everyday jobs under great time pressure.

Elias Reber finished with the most points of all the apprentices. Together with the other Swiss occupational masters, the heating installer from Wasen (BE) received his award on SwissSkills Day in Bern (22 February 2018) from the hands of Federal Councillor Johann Schneider-Ammann, head of the Federal Department of Economic Affairs, Education and Research.

Thanks to his outstanding performance, Reber not only came out on top in the overall ranking at the 2017 SwissSkills Competitions but also took the 2017 Debrunner Acifer Trophy home to Bern. As the trophy holder, he will now be able to drive the SwissSkills Swiss Master Audi A1 car for the next year.

Debrunner Acifer group management member Patrik Forster handed the keys to the young man from Bern at a festive ceremony. As Gold Sponsor of the SwissSkills team, Debrunner Acifer sees this as a way of motivating young talents in the Swiss trades to keep striving for excellence.

Debrunner Acifer would like to warmly congratulate Elias Reber on this outstanding achievement and to wish him every success for the future.
