We offer excellent job positions and apprentice training. Good conditions for proving professional competence or for starting with a first class apprenticeship to kick off a career. Our claim is “demand and encourage”. For example we wish for dedication, and that is what our 300 employees show.

Among other things this means unfolding personal potential, advanced training or training of employees with a maybe different professional background. Apropos “learning”: Internships or work placements are also available, either for pupils or as a co-op university program.


Coming together is a beginning,
Staying together is progress,
working together is a success.

Henry Ford
