Over 140 young people made the decision to come to EDAG (EDAG Engineering GmbH) and subsidiary EDAG Production Solutions GmbH & Co. KG, to embark on their dream jobs and lay the foundations for their future careers. The applicants had the choice of over 20 different apprenticeships and study courses offered by EDAG and FFT.
The 14th August was the starting date for the majority of the future vehicle and production engineers, plant constructors, trainee business administrators and IT apprentices; this was the day when all the newcomers were welcomed at more than 20 EDAG sites in Germany.
This 42nd intake of new apprentices is confirmation of the fact that in-house training continues to be the mainstay of EDAG's junior staff development. In the last 42 years, over 1,800 young people have been apprentices at EDAG, and many of them are still employed by the company today.
EDAG currently has 557 young employees working on either an apprenticeship or study course.
The reason for EDAG's attractiveness as a training company can be found not only in the wide variety of job openings, but also the quality of the training offered - which has been confirmed again by this year's excellent exam results. At the Fulda office alone, seven apprentices achieved the overall grade "excellent", or the best results in their particular professional group. In addition, there were also two Hessian regional champions among the apprentices - Peter Kekert (EDAG) and Fabian Lamp (FFT).
