We build with steel and would like to pass on our passion for this material.

 

Darmstadt, 01.09.2020. Donges SteelTec GmbH welcomed six trainees at the start of the new training year. Two technical system planners and four construction mechanics are starting their professional careers in our steel construction company in Darmstadt.

For years, training at Donges SteelTec has been in great demand. “We are delighted that we are again able to accompany so many young people at the start of their careers and thus build up our own junior staff”, said Joachim Abt, industrial training manager at Donges SteelTec GmbH.

During the three-and-a-half-year training period, the construction mechanics are familiarized in the company’s own training workshop with the usual processes of steel construction production and steel processing such as turning, drilling and milling and welding. In the company’s technical office, the technical system planners learn how to work with modern 3D/2D CAD programs, how to create overview and workshop drawings and how to create parts lists and NC data for the production machines. During the workshop phase, the design engineers to be trained acquire knowledge of steel processing. Company training projects and an extensive training program round off the apprenticeship.

“We have been building steel bridges and innovative steel structures for over 140 years. Each construction is individual and a small masterpiece. Getting young people excited about it is both a claim and a challenge for us” says Thomas Kloose, head of training in the technical office at Donges SteelTec.
