Besides, packaging made fromrenewable raw materials is very popular because it is
eco-friendly and recyclable and therefore makes a significant contribution to climate protection. With

Industrial clerk (m/f/d):
Always at the centre of it all – on-site and digitally

The classic – and extremely popular – training course in companies like ours is the industrial clerk training (m/f/d). On the three-year training course as an industrial clerk (m/f/d), you will act as a link between administration and production; this means you will have excellent knowledge of the commercial departments but also understand what's happening in logistics and in the industrial-technical area.

To improve your media competence and digital skills, we will provide budding industrial clerks like you with brand new iPads. Indeed, when you have passed your final examination and have been given the position, you even get to keep your tablet.
How's that for an incentive!

We are happy to help you further.
