A total of 85 new trainees and students from the Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University began their apprenticeship at Arburg on 2 September 2019.

Managing Partner Renate Keinath, responsible for human resources management at the company, welcomed the new trainees and students on behalf of the partners and management, the apprenticeship team and all employees. Arburg works closely with the vocational schools and cooperative universities in the federal state to maintain the high level of apprenticeship. In addition, Arburg is the first company in Baden-Württemberg to have received triple quality certification.

During an introductory week to make the transition from school to working life easier, the trainees have an opportunity to become more familiar with the company, the individual departments and the product range. In addition to a detailed tour of the company, the program also includes team events and a barbecue dinner.  During their apprenticeship time, they will also pass through the individual departments and work in interdisciplinary project groups. This includes activities in the fields of recruitment marketing and the apprenticeship homepage, as well as involvement with children and young people in numerous events, including the Plastic Experience Day, the Technolino Day, the Girls Days, the annual Arburg Info Days and Top Job Fair as well as the Summer Academy and the summer holiday program.

The company’s apprenticeship program currently includes 19 professions and degree courses. This year, 28 students of industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, mechatronics, (business) information technology and electrical engineering will complete their practical apprenticeship at the company. The two new business studies courses in media and communications management, as well as in forwarding, transport and logistics, are part of the mix for the first time. In addition, there are 11 and 46 trainees, respectively, who are training for commercial and technical professions and who plan to become mechatronics technicians, process engineers, industrial mechanics, electronics technicians for automation technology, industrial clerks or technical product designers.

The company is already looking for interested and committed young personalities for 2020. Anyone interested in training or studying at the Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University will find all relevant information as well as the online application portal at www.arburg.com/en/careers/apprenticeship/.
