Vetropack Austria:

Pöchlarn, November 30, 2018 – Vetropack Austria, Austria's leading manufacturer of packaging glass, is well equipped for the future: major investments in recent years have built a sound foundation for success, and employees and their training are top priorities for the company.

The recent accolade "State-approved Training Company" is a special seal of quality that reflects Vetropack Austria’s contribution to the future of young people and Austria as a business location. In 2018, the company established a new subject-specific apprenticeship, "glass processing technician", with a focus on Austria.

Well-trained specialists are the foundation of Vetropack Austria. For this reason, the company attaches great importance to passing on the know-how about the production of glass packaging. Young people also obtain training in two critical foundation subjects, mechanical engineering and automation technology.

The direct transfer of practical knowledge is also important to Vetropack – which is why they set up a group-wide training centre at the Pöchlarn location in 2016. The heart of the training centre is a glass production machine, where the students can simulate and learn all the processes of glass production.
