Gerresheimer Essen welcomes its new apprentices

“Working with machines and the technology behind them fascinates me,” says Fabian Meyer, while his future apprentice colleague Ismael Jose nods in agreement. As industrial engineers, they will both learn – during their training – how machines and production lines are built and function.They will also provide support if the production lines need to be modified. In addition, they will build machines or entire production lines, install and connect them, and finally put them into operation
