Do you know what packages, windows and electric cars have in common? No? Then join us and discover amazing things in your training at Grenzebach: Our Automated Guided Vehicles ensure that parcels arrive safely and on time. The chance you are looking outside through a pane of glass manufactured on a Grenzebach line is more than 50 percent. If an electric vehicle drives past you, it is very likely that the battery tray has been welded using Grenzebach's friction stir welding technology. Fascinating, isn't it? And we are just getting started...

Do you want to become a part of this amazing world and immerse yourself in our various tasks? Start into the future with us! With over ten apprenticeships in the technical, industrial and IT sectors, we offer you a wide range of career options.

The great thing is: You will never be alone. Trainees are an important part of our group of companies. Therefore, experienced trainers, mentors and, of course, each and every one of your colleagues will be there to support you at all times. After your apprenticeship, we will be happy to welcome you as a new employee at Grenzebach with your acquired knowledge and skills.

AMONG US

Trainees are among themselves at the training center for mechanical and electrical professions at the Hamlar site. This is where they can exchange ideas, learn from each other and prepare themselves for their exams. Our experienced trainers are always there to help the trainees.

In Bad Hersfeld, our trainees can participate in research projects in the Technology Center and experience up close how granite, for example, is ground into fine powder for paints. Trainees will find the latest technology and machines spread across several training rooms, enabling them to apply the knowledge they have learned on a small scale. Highly popular for projects: our in-house 3D printer!

DOING GOOD TOGETHER

Living their values and showing social commitment: that’s what apprentices in their second year of training do with a special project in which they decide on a charity program in the region and realize it sustainably.

Helping people has a long tradition within the Grenzebach Group. Therefore, we also encourage our future employees to engage in social activities in the regions where our sites are located and beyond: For example, by selling regional vegetables, building birdhouses, or constructing a bench for the Bavarian Red Cross.

Journeyman celebration

Completing the apprenticeship is properly celebrated at Grenzebach. The graduates receive their IHK (Chamber of Industry and Commerce) and training certificates. A joint meal with trainees and our CEO Dr. Steven Althaus completes the celebrations.

Apprentices Welcome Day

On this day, all new trainees are being welcomed to the company. They are introduced and their parents get to know the company and the management. Experienced trainees will present their professions.

Apprentice Award

We acknowledge social commitment. This is why we grant an award every year during the apprentice workshop in the fall. The prizes are coupons and event tickets.

Trainee excursion

How does a drying plant work? What happens to the finished friction stir welding gantry machines? On our regular trainee excursions, we visit plants, companies and partner businesses to find answers to these questions.

We are partners of many schools and universities

School partnerships

GROWING TOGETHER

Every training starts at the very beginning: We are a training company and maintain partnerships with many schools and universities in the regions where our sites are located. We honor outstanding achievements in the fields of mathematics, computer science, nature and technology by awarding various prizes.

Grenzebach supports schools by improving their technical equipment, organizing trips and excursions to Grenzebach, as well as offering spaces for mandatory internships. We are also co-founder and supporter of the TCW (Technology Center of Western Bavaria) in Nördlingen.

FIRST HAND

“ From day one, I was actively involved in everything here. I really like it! Currently, I'm in the assembly department. At the end of my apprenticeship, I'll move to the welding shop. After that, I will have experienced all the stages of production, from the raw material to the final machine. I am looking forward to it! ”

Niklas Schombacher

Cutting Machine Operator 1st year of apprenticeship

“ For me, the absolute highlight was visiting our location in Bad Hersfeld. Grenzebach organized a company car and hotel for us trainees. The exchange was very interesting, as each of our sites manufactures and develops different machines and equipment. ”

Finn-Luca Hildebrandt

Technical Product Designer 3rd year of apprenticeship

“ I started my career at Grenzebach 15 years ago as an industrial mechanics apprentice. Now I'm head of Mechanical Engineering. I have always been given new perspectives. Because that is the great thing about Grenzebach: There are endless ways to develop. ”

Michael Müller

Head of Mechanical Engineering

“ I have always had a close connection to the company through my family and the proximity to my home. That is why I like to commit myself beyond my normal area of responsibility at Grenzebach: For example, I am part of our trainee Instagram team and volunteer to help with upcoming events or projects. ”

Samuel Pauler

Industrial Management Assistant 2nd year of apprenticeship

“ The apprenticeship at Grenzebach is really multi-faceted. Since I'm always working actively in different departments and on many different projects, my daily work is very varied. I always learn something new with every project: I can gain a lot of knowledge and experience, but I can also apply the knowledge I've already acquired. ”

Robin Sefers

Technical Product Designer 3rd year of apprenticeship

“ Grenzebach was the first company where I did an internship. What can I say: From day one, I was amazed by the work, the people and the atmosphere here. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Even after having completed my apprenticeship, I still enjoy coming to work every day. ”

Noori Abdulhamed

Industrial Electrician

“ During my apprenticeship I already made my way through all manufacturing departments. After that, I was able to gain valuable work experience in final assembly and mechanical processing. I repeatedly assisted in numerous customer projects at our worldwide locations. Now I am in charge of the final assembly and I like to share my acquired knowledge and experience every day, with young and old. ”
