First-class training and giving young people opportunities have always played a key role at Plansee. Apprentices have been trained as cutting machine operators at the German production site in Lechbruck since 2012. The scheme has been a resounding success, with the trainees from the Lechbruck site counting among the best to complete their course in the Allgäu region several times already. The Swabia Chamber of Industry and Commerce has presented the company with awards for the outstanding quality of its training on repeated occasions.
Now the production site in Germany is further strengthening its training of emerging talent within the company by offering a second apprenticeship as a process technologist alongside the cutting machine operator roles. While the basics of the training are similar, process technologists focus more on producing material and cutting machine operators specialize in processing the material.
There are two places available for each job profile, so a total of four training places each year. Four young people took up the opportunity at the start of the new apprenticeship year and began their training at Plansee in Lechbruck at the start of September.
