The training of young apprentices and the further training of employees have always played a key role at Plansee. We have been training talented young individuals in technical skilled trades since 1938.
The bells of the Plansee vocational school first rang in 1939. The school was founded together with the training workshop in order to provide internal training for skilled metalworkers. Over the years, hundreds of young people have been trained in the most diverse range of professions. Almost 100 years later, vocational training at the site in Reutte is just as important as it was back then; in 2021, Plansee, together with Ceratizit, opened a new, state-of-the-art training center. Here, up to 120 trainees in six different professions can complete their training, combining theory and practice in the 2,700 square meter building.
In addition to the company headquarters in Austria, Plansee offers training at all of its large production sites. Since 2002, young apprentices have been trained as multi-skilled and production mechanics at Plansee Power Tech in Switzerland, where they also choose a specialism; from CNC production and joining techniques to repairs and measurement technology or CAD drawing.
Cutting machine operators have been trained at Plansee Composite Materials in Germany since 2012. At this site, we are particularly proud of the fact that our trainees regularly achieve the highest grades and are counted amongst the best graduates in the region.
In India and China, young apprentices are trained in partnership with the respective governments. In 2022, around 20 talented young individuals completed their training at Plansee in Shanghai for the first time. In Mysore, India, around 50 young people are completing their practical placement at Plansee India.
In 2022, a state-of-the-art training center for manufacturing was opened at Plansee USA in Franklin. At this facility, employees can learn new skills and focus on continuous professional development. Training centers around manufacturing theory and the practical application of these theories in CNC turning and milling applications.
These internal training and further training measures demonstrate our social responsibility and fulfill the demand for highly qualified specialists. This is the only way we can achieve our exacting quality requirements and drive forward innovations – both now and in the future.
