Apprentices at Roth Industries receive their trade proficiency certificates – 21 apprentices and trainees began their journey on 1 August 2015


Twelve apprentices have successfully completed their training at the Roth Industries Group. At a graduation ceremony on 28 August 2015, Head of HR Michael Donges presented trade proficiency certificates and bonuses of €950 in recognition of their achievements. He congratulated the apprentices at Bolenz & Schäfer, Roth Plastics Technology and Roth Werke on their success.

At Bolenz & Schäfer in Eckelshausen, Kevin Siegel completed his training as a cutting machine operator. Meanwhile, Mark Dersch at Roth Plastics Technology in Wolfgruben is now a qualified Warehouse Logistics Specialist, while Marc-André Hodes, Daniel Hoffmann and Mike Richter have successfully finished their training as Process Mechanics.
At the Roth Werke sites in Buchenau, Annika Brasche, Daniel Saverio De Simone and Fabienne Haus completed their training as Industrial Management Assistants and Florian Dörr trained as a Process Mechanic. Karsten Justus is now a fully trained Electronics Technician, Manual Roth a Warehouse Logistics Specialist and Lars Schüttler an Industrial Mechanic. All of the apprentices were given a job upon completion of their training – many on a permanent basis.

Chair of the Works Council Ralf Freund and Head of HR Michael Donges congratulated the newly qualified specialists. Together, they praised the apprentices’ achievements and the commitment of their supervisors. “The completion of training is the basis of a successful career. We’re very proud that we’ve provided so many young people with a platform for solid professional training and a successful career,” explained Michael Donges. In addition to their bonuses, each former apprentice received a small gift at the ceremony.

On 1 August, 21 new apprentices and trainees made their first foray into the world of work at Roth Industries, bringing the total number of apprentices, one-year trainees and “Studium Plus” students in the Group’s training programmes up to around 75.
