Gerresheimer Regensburg’s new apprentices start work

33 apprentices and 4 students embark on their careers

Wackersdorf, August 2013: 33 new apprentices commenced their training programs at Gerresheimer Regensburg GmbH on August 30. The 4 students taking sandwich degree courses in plastics engineering and mechatronics have been at the company since July 1. Gerresheimer Regensburg will also be offering apprenticeships in 2014. They are an attractive opportunity for career starters because the company offers permanent positions to the majority of apprentices once they have completed their training.

33 young people began their apprenticeships at Gerresheimer Regensburg GmbH on August 30. They were welcomed by Axel Süß (Personnel Director Germany at Gerresheimer Regensburg GmbH) in Wackersdorf’s Sales and Engineering Center. Once he had welcomed the new apprentices, Axel Süß talked to them about the company and Carmen Kullmann (Training Officer at Gerresheimer Regensburg GmbH) talked to them about the Gerresheimer Medical Plastic Systems training concept. Lydia Armer, Chairwoman of the Gerresheimer Regensburg Works Council, provided information about youth and apprentice representation and explained what the works council does. At midday the apprentices were taken by coach for a tour of the production facility in Pfreimd. The induction event finished up with the traditional barbecue that is hosted by the Works Council every year.

Gerresheimer Regensburg GmbH currently has 110 apprentices and sandwich course students. There will be new apprenticeships available in 2014. Applications for technical occupations, such as plastics and rubber process engineer, toolmaker for mold building, industrial mechanic, industrial engineering electronics technician or technical machine and systems product designer are particularly requested. The closing date for applications is 18 October 2013.
