In September, 23 young people began their training at Strama-MPS Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG. Numerous information, many new faces, company tours and first safety instructions awaited the trainees on their first day. A total of four electronics technicians for industrial engineering, two machining mechanics, two precision mechanics, five mechatronics technicians, two industrial mechanics, one technical product designer, one office management clerk, two industrial clerks as well as one dual student each in the fields of mechanical engineering and electrical engineering and two in the field of mechatronics will start into a successful future together with Strama-MPS.
Right on time at 7:00 a.m., training manager Erwin Berger, training master Stefan Nißl, trainer Alfons Weiß and trainers Sandra Feldmeier and Veronika Zirngibl warmly welcomed the new trainees. In order to make it easier for the new trainees to start their careers, an extensive supporting program was planned in advance for the first week of work. On the first working day, the programme included a presentation of the respective specialist trainers and the Strama-MPS Group, a quiz, field reports from the dual students on their semesters abroad and a tour of the "Plant 1" in Ittlinger Strasse. In the days that follow, the new trainees will be greeted by the management, the works council and the youth training representatives, as well as a tour of the company at the Donau plant and initial safety instructions. In addition, interesting company and product presentations will follow, which will be worked out and presented by trainees from the second and third apprenticeship years. In order to get to know each other better, the first week of work includes a trip to Viechtach. For the 23 young people, the Adventure Camp will offer canoeing on the black rain. In the following weeks, the industrial trainees learn the basic skills in metalworking before they are deployed according to the contents of their specific training plans. From the second week onwards, the commercial trainees will go into their first departments.
Over the past 73 years, more than 1,200 young people have completed their vocational training at Strama-MPS and many of them have remained loyal to the company to this day. Currently, 100 young people are undergoing training in a total of ten apprenticeship occupations and three dual study courses.
