While the machine spat out the copies, Lutz used the waiting time and studies technical memo sheets. Since years, he has known the names of all patterns and the mixture ratio for elastomers and mould-making resins off the bat. In 2007, the decided in favor of a training as an Industrial Management Assistant at RECKLI. Subsequently, Lutz worked as a specialist in Sales before he switched to Distribution and Marketing.

RECKLI provides him with the time to fulfill his tasks and gives him free reign in terms of time management. “Without that trust, I would have had to have severely restricted my political commitment or even given it up entirely”, he says. That way, Lutz juggles politics next to his job and family - and still has an anecdote to spare in the end.
