BUTTING Schwedt: Launch of our in-house training workshop

Training is an investment in the future – the future of the company and the future of young people. BUTTING is well aware of this and offers highly qualified training at its locations in Knesebeck (Lower Saxony) and Schwedt (Brandenburg). To optimise the practical transfer of knowledge, a new training workshop was recently set up in Schwedt.

Marko Busse, the Managing Director of BUTTING Schwedt, explains: "We attach great importance to preparing the apprentices optimally for their future professional life. Through our training workshop, we will be able to give apprentices better support in future to become qualified skilled workers. The practical relationship to BUTTING's products and production facilities is much more intense."

At BUTTING, industrial-technical apprentices in the training workshop can in future gain practical experience in dealing with stainless steels. In this way they will experience practically-based training on machines that will also be used in their later professional life. Thomas Gessner, responsible for training at BUTTING in Schwedt, is proud of the modern machinery in the training workshop: "The apprentices also have 13 welding stations for TIG- and E-welding, each with extraction systems. At two other workplaces we can do MAG-welding."

Every year, 12 apprenticeships are offered for plant mechanics. For example, 34 apprentices are currently undergoing training in order to manufacture and assemble components later on site as well as on domestic and foreign construction sites. "BUTTING expects applicants not only to be interested in and enjoy their career training, but also to have a technical understanding. In addition, the apprentices should recognise their chances and opportunities for their future. The practical training in the training workshop is a step to successfully completing the apprenticeship," says Marko Busse and adds: "Our goal is to offer apprentices an attractive, modern training place with the training workshop, to enable them to become skilled workers and to gain their loyalty to our company."

Anyone interested can apply until 28 February.
