To mark the 75th anniversary of apprenticeships at the Meitingen site, the first Apprenticeship Day was held on July 4. With around 170 visitors to the SGL Carbon training facility at the site, the day was a complete success.
The trainees answered all questions about the respective apprenticeships from interested students and their parents with full commitment and visible fun. They explained work processes on the individual machines, the future chemical laboratorians had prepared a station with interesting experiments, and in the case of the electronics technicians, one of the project works presented was a machine produced by a 3D printer that can solve a Rubik's cube.
"Vocational training has always been a high priority at SGL and forms the basis for meeting our need for well-qualified skilled workers," clarifies Alexander Miehling, site manager of SGL Carbon in Meitingen.
Over ice cream, snacks and cool drinks, visitors were able to talk in an informal atmosphere with trainers, current apprentices and, not least, some employees whose careers once began as apprentices at SGL.
