New Kiefel Education Centre: On the pulse of time - future-oriented learning in a modern environment

23 Sep 2019

KIEFEL GmbH, Freilassing, stands for high-quality machines and outstanding service. That would not be possible without the dedicated and well-trained staff. The new Kiefel training center was officially opened on September 20, 2019. It offers not only a state-of-the-art teaching and training environment for young people from the region, but also for national and international assembly and service employees.

Kiefel held a large family event to celebrate the completion and opening of the new center, introducing the employees and friends of Kiefel to the world of work and range of attractive training places.

 

Training center with unique flair

The training rate at Kiefel is a good ten percent, well above the average of comparable companies. Of the currently 580 employees at the Freilassing location, 70 are apprentices. With the new center, which extends over three floors, Kiefel is going even further: 80 training places are now available!

On more than 1500 m2, the education center offers Kiefel trainees and employees a modern training environment. The technical training departments have moved into the ground floor and first floor. Specialist educators are available for the basics course in metal, electrical and control technology modules as well as for training in the latest milling technology with innovative CAD/CAM technology and robotics. A multi-purpose room for 150 people and a PC training room will provide Kiefel employees with optimal training conditions.

 

Central training hub

In addition to the prospective electronics technicians for automation technology, industrial mechanics, warehouse logistics specialists, technical product designers and industrial clerks, the investment in the new education center will also benefit service and assembly technicians from all over the world.

Thus, the education center in Freilassing will become the central hub of Kiefel's worldwide activities.

 

Investment in specialists and executives of the future

Kiefel Managing Director and CEO Thomas J. Halletz emphasizes: "With the continued expansion of the Freilassing site, we are ensuring high training standards and offer young people an optimal start to their professional lives as well as real future perspectives." After the apprenticeship, many young people start their careers at Kiefel whilst many others continue their studies and later return to Kiefel. Halletz states: "We are investing in our future specialists and executives and in the education and training of our experienced staff. That is the basis for our performance, our growth and our success."
