Bauma is the largest construction machinery trade fair in the world and Liebherr is one of the largest exhibitors. Every three years Liebherr presents innovations, solutions, giants and future trends on an area of 14,500 m². An international audience from all over the world dives into the fascinating world of construction and mining machinery for seven days.
From Bauma to a dream job
Ricardo Dieing just wanted to have a look around at the Bauma trade fair. But the 29-year-old soon found he had landed his dream job with Liebherr, in Ehingen.
“A walk through the Bauma site is a must for me,” says Ricardo Dieing. The 29-year-old construction engineer has visited the world’s largest construction machinery trade fair three times, and each time his path led him to the Liebherr stand. “The large machinery, and especially the cranes, have always captivated me,” he says.
Quite by chance, this time he also spent some time at the careers stand and happened to strike up a conversation with HR manager Stefan Füller. “After I finished my studies, I landed a good job with a major scaffolding construction company, so I wasn’t looking for anything in particular. Two weeks later, Stefan sent me a job description that suited me perfectly,” he recalls.
Dieing started his new job in Ehingen in October. “Likeable colleagues, appealing tasks and a fantastic working environment: I couldn’t have got off to a better start,” he declares.
Steelwork and finite element calculations were particular interests during his studies. “Calculating the structural analysis of a crane grid at the very limits of the material is exciting stuff,” says Dieing.
Was it mere chance or destiny? “I don’t mind either way,” says the young construction engineer. “It’s a great leap forward for me. I’ll never get bored working in crane construction.”
