For a long time, Christian Sprenger, born in 1979, had nothing whatsoever to do with surgical mechanics. After graduating from high school, he studied mechanical engineering on a combined academic/practical course - 'dual study' in Germany - completing a traineeship as an industrial mechanic alongside his degree studies. After that, he worked for 10 years as a salaried member of the development staff in a German SME. He drew his salary, he went on vacation and had no need to worry about his future. Then, one day, it became clear to him: “I want something different. I want to be independent”.
His father had never asked him if he would like to join his parent's company. “It was entirely my own decision”. In 2014, he took a step into a less certain future. Which landed him squarely in a sector that appeared to have more past than future. To shape his own future as well as that of the Sprenger workforce. This graduate engineer has not regretted this step - indeed, quite the reverse is true. “For me, the most important thing is to pursue my own objective in life. I believe that is only possible as an entrepreneur”.
