Just in time for the start of training on Wednesday, August 1, Achim Dries, Managing Director of Paul Vahle GmbH & Co. KG, welcomed the 16 new apprentices at VAHLE. In the next years, they will be trained as industrial clerks, production mechanics, electronics technicians for equipment and systems field, technical product designers, warehouse logistics and IT specialists.
Almost a week later there was another reason to celebrate - on Tuesday, August 7, 2018, the new training center was opened. Achim Dries, Stefan Schreiber (Managing Director of the Dortmund Chamber of Industry and Commerce), shareholders and advisory board and other company representatives cut the ribbon together. VAHLE invested about 150,000 € in the optimization of the training centre. The specialists of tomorrow are now being promoted and trained on 325 air-conditioned square metres. "In the competition for skilled workers, a good infrastructure for training is the key to attracting young people," says Achim Dries.
