Apprentice Bonuses for Our Young <<Raw Diamonds>>
We began training apprentices just one year after our founding in 1959. Today, we have apprentice programs at every plant to develop the young talents of tomorrow.
In an increasingly globalized world, international experience is becoming more and more important for young professionals. With the global rotation program, we want to enable apprentices to gain valuable insights and expertise in different company locations.
