Vetropack Austria is looking for apprentices

Pöchlarn, 5th January 2021 – Vetropack Austria is leading the way with the new apprenticeship in “glass process engineering” at the plants in Pöchlarn, upper Austria and Kremsmünster, lower Austria. For those interested in technology, this training program offers a broad range of experience in process and automation. For 2021 apprentices are still being sought.

Well-trained, specialised employees are the foundation of Vetropack Austria. The wide-ranging technical training includes, among other things, the control, maintenance and programming of machines and robots as well as the processing of various metals for machines and production systems.

The program focusses on direct, practical experience and takes place in the group-wide training centre and newly established training workshop. Here, apprentices go through simulations and training for all glass production processes. The modern facili-ties offer plenty of space for learning the required manual skills. In 2020, Vetropack Austria was once again awarded with the INEO for its exemplary apprentice training.

Professional perspective

The young people are offered a wide-ranging career perspective that they can build on. After completing their apprenticeship, the glass process technicians are taken on in one of Vetro-pack Austria's technical departments.

"We rely on internal know-how and the most modern training possible. The job of a glass process engineer offers a diverse training program and is particular-ly suitable for young people who enjoy technology. Our apprentices are ready for the future and have great career opportunities in our company."
