The future is yours


Training in business and technical professions for over 100 years and close cooperation with regional educational institutions play a major role in our company. Over 9% of our staff consists of trainees, underscoring our company's commitment to developing a well-trained workforce.

The new building of the Campus Buschhütten, into which the industrial apprenticeship moved as part of the Smart Learning Factory Achenbach Buschhütten SLAB at the beginning of 2021, sets a new important milestone.

The focus is on future-oriented learning content in the context of Industry 4.0 as well as new forms of collaboration, which are becoming increasingly important in times of digitalisation. Against this background, the mission statement of the Buschhütten Campus was chosen as the umbrella brand: 'We produce. Future.'

      Apprenticeship in the SLAB

      Graduates of our training programs earn above-average grades, which is evidence of the high quality of instruction provided by Achenbach. Trainees begin learning such basic principles as motivation, skills, flexibility and teamwork right from the start. Through early involvement in our operational processes, trainees are able to easily transition from training to later permanent employment and gain quick acceptance in their work environment.

      At the Smart Learning Factory Achenbach Buschhütten SLAB you can apply for the following training courses:

      • Industrial technican
      • Cutting machine operator
      • Mechatronics engineers
      • Technical product designer
      • Industrial clerk

      Cooperative courses of studies

      At Achenbach Buschhütten, as a partner of the University of Siegen, you can also complete a dual curriculum study in two directions:

      • Electrical engineering – automation technology
      • Mechnical engineering – construction technology

        The cooperative study partnership between the University of Siegen and Achenbach offers an ideal combination of practice-based training, academic study and financial support. During the practical portion of the program, you can apply what you learn in class with us. Once you return to the classroom, you'll be able to supplement the skills you learned on the job with theory.

          Internship in the SLAB

          Are you a high school student interested in a business or technical career with an international family-owned business? Contact us for an internship at school, which you can do in Purchasing, Finance, Construction Documentation and Controll, Shipping and Sales departments, for example. An internship in the industrial area, i.e. in the learning factory (SLAB), is also possible.

          • School Internship

          Or are you currently in college and would like to supplement your classroom studies by gaining practical experience? We offer you the opportunity, especially in our Design, Manufacturing, Sales and Marketing departments, to complete a specialized internship or general internship (required for admission to technical degree programs in Germany) at our training facility Smart Apprenticeship Factory SLAB.
