Our Apprentices - Talents of Tomorrow!

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.

Global Apprenticeship Rotation Program

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.

MATTER OUT OF PLACE, is a compelling documentary that highlights the issues of pollution and waste in our society. We set a strong example in the spirit of sustainability by inviting our apprentices to the film screening. We also organized participation for other renowned companies in Vorarlberg. A total of 250 apprentices and accompanying persons filled the cinema halls of the Cineplexx Hohenems.

A snow-covered forest, seemingly untouched nature. But the closer you get to the landscape, the clearer it becomes that something is wrong here. The seemingly untouched nature turns out to be a place full of disturbing factors: paper, plastic, electronic waste, bulky waste, and industrial waste. Garbage as far as the eye can see. The initially invisible garbage is now unmistakable. The images in the film MATTER OUT OF PLACE speak for themselves and provoke thought. It is a film that impressively addresses the important issue of sustainability and waste. In cooperation with the Vorarlberg School Cinema, we organized a film screening at the Cineplexx Hohenems and invited the major apprentice companies in Vorarlberg to accompany us with their apprentices.

"Given the importance of sustainability and environmental protection in our time, we were keen to raise awareness among our apprentices and offer them a platform for exchange and discussion. We firmly believe that today's apprentices are the shapers of a more sustainable world tomorrow," said Reinhard Prasch, Head of Apprenticeship Training in Rankweil.

The film captivated the audience with its impressive visuals and messages. The event was a complete success and offered the apprentices the opportunity to deal with the topic of sustainability and to take responsibility for a sustainable future. Together with the Vorarlberg companies Blum, Lercher, Fulterer, and AZV, we strengthened awareness for environmental protection and sustainability. It is encouraging to see companies joining forces and pooling their resources to raise awareness of a sustainable future among the next generation of professionals.

"We are grateful for the support of the participating companies and the positive response we have received for this event. The screening of MATTER OUT OF PLACE was a milestone in our efforts to strengthen sustainability values among our apprentices and make a positive contribution to society" mentions Helmut Tisch, Waste Officer.

Together, we can drive change and create a world where sustainability and environmental protection are top priorities.
