A company’s most precious asset is its employees. Particularly when it comes to specially-trained skilled craftspeople. Vauth-Sagel Group is well aware of this fact, which is why the company has been investing in meticulous in-house training for many, many years now. Once again, numerous young men and women started their vocational careers at the Group’s numerous plants in August of this year. “Over the past years, we have invested substantial amounts of money and resources in the training and further training and are extremely proud to be successfully training young people in so many different professions at our various production sites”, emphasises Claus Sagel, one of the three Managing Directors at Vauth-Sagel Holding GmbH.

Vauth-Sagel was able to welcome a total of 16 new apprentices in four different professions this summer. At Vauth-Sagel Systemtechnik in Brakel-Erkeln, two industrial business management assistants and two industrial mechanics embarked on their careers, while Westo Kunststofftechnik offered apprenticeships to two industrial business management assistants, one industrial mechanic, three plastics engineering process technicians and two tool mechanics. And Korbach-based Mauser Einrichtungssysteme is also dedicated to young recruits newly employing three industrial business management assistants and one industrial mechanics, who all started working for the company in August.

“We are thrilled that we are able to employ young people each year. With this, we are countering the lack of skilled craftspeople while simultaneously ensuring that know-how is passed from generation to generation – allowing us to manufacture with a high degree of competence in Germany in the years to come. Furthermore, we as a Group can offer the apprentices numerous opportunities for their further careers following their apprenticeships”, states Claus Sagel.

The high number of new employees is simultaneously an indication of just how well the Vauth-Sagel Group has weathered the economic storm in 2009. Thanks to excellent market positioning and successful export efforts with a new production facility in America, the Vauth-Sagel Group is looking at an extremely optimistic future.
