We are investing in the future by investing in qualified employees and in-house training. Young people are able to begin careers here in the design and development, production, commissioning and service departments. The dual vocational training model has a long tradition at our company. The state-approved in-house vocational training school in Würzburg has provided access to professional qualifications based on a system that integrates both theory and practice for more than 150 years. Mechatronics technician, industrial mechanic, cutting tool operator, IT specialist and industrial business assistant are just a few examples from the broad range of training programmes. Future mechatronics technicians account for the largest share, with around one-third of the available training places. In future, we will also be offering training in the new specialist field of electronics technician for automation systems. Further training opportunities include dual study programmes in the disciplines of electrical engineering, media informatics and industrial engineering, during which students are able to combine university study with periods of practical experience at our locations in Würzburg, Radebeul and Stuttgart.
Regular top placements and good to very good results in the final examinations are testimony to the acknowledged quality of our group-wide training facilities. Koenig & Bauer Radebeul has been listed as a top training provider by the Saxon metalworking and electrical engineering industries more than 20 times now – more often than any other member company. Trainees at the major group locations in Würzburg and Radebeul are promised employment upon successful completion of their training, and therefore outstanding career prospects.
