TRIMET apprentices complete training
“The successful completion of vocational training is an important event and something these apprentices can be very proud of. The entire class of apprentices has worked wonderfully well and harmoniously together. Congratulations, also on behalf of your colleagues – we are delighted that you will remain part of the TRIMET family,” said Dr. Dirk Bormann.
Unai Usin Bengoa came to Harzgerode from Spain in 2014. In his home country, many motivated young people have no career prospects, while TRIMET in Harzgerode urgently seeks qualified applicants for open apprenticeship places. To safeguard the location over the long term, TRIMET has therefore committed itself to a program that recruits employees in Spain. Bengoa was the program’s first participant. Meanwhile, three other young Spaniards have successfully completed their training in Harzgerode.
“I feel very well at TRIMET and here in the Harz region in general. The cohesion among colleagues is great, and I can do a lot of sports in the beautiful countryside. I am delighted to have long-term career prospects at TRIMET and would like to live here for many years,” says Bengoa. He started his apprenticeship after an internship, accompanied by German courses. Thanks to an outstanding performance during the apprenticeship and in the interim examination, his final examination was advanced by half a year. The colleague, who was greatly appreciated by his fellow employees, has settled in the Harz region.
With some 700 employees and about 60 apprentices, TRIMET’s aluminum foundry in Harzgerode is one of the most important employers in the region. The location is currently being expanded and offers long-term career opportunities to interested applicants.
