STILL is increasing its trainee intake
STILL is boosting its vocational training efforts, announcing a doubling of training capacities in its branches throughout Germany next year.

The increase will enable 40 new trainees each year to make a start in the mechatronics profession.

STILL will increase its training capacities in the mechatronics area to a regular 160 trainees throughout Germany in the next few years. Together with the capacities at the head office in Hamburg, STILL, one of the leading suppliers of customised intralogistics solutions, will then train a total of more than 260 young specialist employees in 12 occupations requiring skilled training, and will thus be among the big training organisations in the German training system.

Thorsten Hofmann, financial director and labour relations director for STILL, says the expansion aims to counteract demographic changes and the growing shortage of skilled professionals. "We will encourage, lead and develop our youngest staff through our high-quality training. By contributing to shaping a great international technology brand, our talented young employees in particular are ultimately the key players for our shared future! We therefore give topmost priority to investment in our vocational training."

STILL intends augmenting its training centre at the head office in Hamburg with another central training centre in Nürnberg/Fürth in which trainees in the more advanced years of training will attend modular intralogistics-specific practical seminars. The STILL team of vocational trainers will also be strengthened for this purpose by additional new full-time professional trainers for its 14 subsidiaries throughout Germany from the summer of 2018 onwards.
