Extending a Heartfelt Welcome – 14 Trainees Take First Step on Career Ladder at KLINGELNBERG

High-quality, practical and modern vocational training provides an indispensable foundation, now and in the future. For 14 young professionals, a new chapter in life began on 01 August 2022, as they started their training with machine manufacturing firm Klingelnberg. The available apprenticeships include industrial management, cutting machine operation, industrial mechanics, electronics for industrial engineering, specialist IT for system integration, and dual studies for mechanical engineering.

Welcome Week with Vocational Subjects and Team Building
In keeping with tradition, the first week was all about getting to know one another. During the five-day introductory phase, not only did the novice professionals receive important information about the company, but they also attended their first product training sessions. This included a tour of the Peterstraße/Hückeswagen plant, as well as a visit to the ultra-modern large bevel gear production facility located in Heinrich-Schicht-Straße at the nearby Winterhagen/Hückeswagen facility and the new assembly hall, still under construction. A walkabout through the individual departments provided further interesting insights into the daily operations of a global company. 

And to strengthen the team spirit, various sports activities were planned, in addition to the many informational and professional aspects presented: the career starters showed their team spirit by successfully completing the specified course at GHW Climbing GmbH, Hückeswagen. All of the Klingelnberg trainees then finished the introduction phase together with an afternoon barbecue.

Application Phase Launched for 2023
Vocational training is highly valued at Klingelnberg. The company is now looking for committed up-and-coming talent for the training year 2023 and will increase the number of apprenticeships available, particularly in the industrial/technical area.
