At the Apprentice Awards, granted by the industrial section of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber, the top three awards in the category ‘Mechanical Engineering’ were bagged by apprentices from Lenzing.

According to a Lenzing press release, the best apprentices during their second year of training in different categories from Upper Austria were honoured.

Bernhard Hausjell, Michael Stix and Simon Premm, all from Lenzing received the trainee awards on June 23, 2015 at a ceremony held at Design Center Linz.

“Future-oriented human resources planning and development are very important for Lenzing. Well-trained skilled employees comprise a major competitive advantage for us,” Stefan Doboczky, CEO at Lenzing said.

“For this reason, we also attach great importance to ensuring a very good, comprehensive and practical training for our young talents and in this way we safeguard the high standards we require,” he added.

“I am very proud that today three of our young professionals won this award and I congratulate them warmly on their success,” he observed.

Each year about 50 new apprentices begin work at Lenzing and there are a total of 13 different professions which can be learned like chemical process engineering, metal technology, plastics moulding, etc.

Gottfried Englbrecht-Dießlbacher, training manager at Lenzing’s educational center - Bildungszentrum Lenzing (BZL) said, “The BZL assumes responsibility for the entire training of apprentices at the Lenzing Group.”

“We take care of more than 170 young people, from selecting and admitting the trainees up until their final apprenticeship examination,” she added.

“In addition, we also train 250 external apprentices for more than 50 companies, and support about 200 adults, who later receive their apprenticeship certificate within the context of second chance education,” Dießlbacher informed.

Lenzing launched a new apprenticeship initiative designed to make it easier for young people to get an insight into life as an apprenticeship and the project is called ‘L3 – Live, Learn (as an apprentice), Lenzing.’ (AR)
