VAHLE welcomes 16 career starters at the start of the new apprenticeship year.

At the start of the new apprenticeship year, Paul Vahle GmbH & Co. KG welcomed 16 newcomers to the company. The apprentices are learning various industrial and commercial professions at the system provider for mobile industrial applications. During the orientation phase, the young professionals gain insights into the various departments and get to know their colleagues.

"Rarely has it been so difficult to recruit well-trained skilled workers. This makes it all the more important for our company to establish an excellent apprenticeship program and to get young people excited about our industry," says Kathrina Adelsberger, co-apprenticeship manager at VAHLE. With the 16 new apprentices, the Kamen-based systems provider now employs a total of 42 apprentices. "This shows us that our intensive efforts are paying off and that VAHLE is perceived as an attractive apprencticeship company as well as a future-oriented company," Adelsberger is pleased to say.

To kick things off, Management member Henning Stelte welcomed the newcomers. In the coming days, various training courses and initial briefings will be held to help them get started in their careers. Also part of the orientation phase is an etiquette course and the company rally, where the newcomers can explore the plant premises. The apprenticeship manager emphasizes, "The absolute priority is that our apprentices quickly become part of the VAHLE family and feel at home in our company." A special highlight of the first days every year is the fire drill, where things always get heated. To conclude the orientation phase, there will also be a joint excursion with all trainees in the coming week.

The 16 career starters are taking different career paths at VAHLE. Thus, the group consists of two prospective warehouse specialists, two specialists for metal technology, three production mechanics, one industrial electrician, one technical product designer, five industrial clerks and one IT specialist for system integration. VAHLE takes one person directly into the second year of training after a successful six-month introductory qualification. Adelsberger's colleague Thorsten Röhr is particularly pleased about the growing diversity in the company: "In industrial professions, we now have two female apprentices in our ranks at the same time for the first time. A first for VAHLE."

The family-owned company is also already looking for new apprentices for the coming year.
