We offer the following apprenticeships:

If you find it exciting to turn an idea into a finished product, then design engineering could well be your ideal profession. You’ll square product design with customer wishes, technical requirements and standards and use your spatial perception to help design the appropriate machine parts and systems. You’ll lay the foundation stone for manufacturing our complex machines.

The commercial apprenticeship is your key to many different departments and jobs: From administration to freight forwarding, procurement and sales, through to human resources, finance and accounting – it has it all. You’ll have plenty of contact with internal customers and suppliers and should therefore be able to express yourself well, both orally and in writing, and be reliable and sociable. At the same time, your remit is very international, because our machines are situated all over the world. The computer is your favourite tool for organising, documenting and processing your tasks.

Do you and your computer speak the same language? Are hardware and software problems exciting challenges for you? Then you were born to be an IT specialist. You’ll help our internal customers with IT problems and also implement complex solutions in the fields of IT systems technology, applications and networks.

As an apprentice polytechnician, you’ll produce and install tools, components or entire production systems made of various metals, plastics and composite materials during your basic training (1st and 2nd year). During your specialist training with us, you’ll collaborate with other skilled staff in assembling mechanical, electrical and pneumatic parts into a functional entity. For the work with our machines, you’ll require spatial perception and a good general technical understanding. If mechanical engineering inspires you, then this is the right place for you.

As an automation engineer, you’ll be responsible for the electrical and mechanical commissioning of our machines as well as their programming and configuration. Your responsibilities will also include checking all electromechanical processes and work cycles. Your workplace will be located at the heart of our company, in the assembly hall. If your attributes include technical aptitude, manual dexterity, an understanding for abstract relationships and spatial perception, then this is the perfect place for you.

Trial Apprenticeship


Are you still unsure which professional path you want to take? A trial apprenticeship is the perfect way to try out a profession or apprenticeship trade in practice, at the same time as getting to know our company. You’ll gain an insight into the daily routines, the responsibilities and requirements and you can ask all your questions in person. This simplifies the decision as to whether your chosen profession actually suits you.

In principle, a trial apprenticeship is possible in all our apprentice trades, and applications are accepted at any time. Simply send us your application documents, specifying you chosen apprenticeship and the desired period. We are also happy to advise you if you have any questions in advance.
