The topic of training is taken very seriously at WOM, but at the same time it is supposed to be a lot of fun as well. Currently, 19 young people receive training at the production site in Ludwigsstadt in 8 different occupations. The 18-year-old Lukas Thiel from the Upper Franconian town of Steinberg tells of his freshly gained impressions of the start of his training as a production mechanic.
WOM Ludwigsstadt uses state-of-the-art production processes to manufacture equipment and accessories for medical technology and exports them all over the world. The department with the most employees is at the Oberfranken location – the certified cleanroom facility with more than 80 employees, in which plastic parts are manufactured, assembled, and packaged under very special conditions.
Sandy Paschold, who has been working for WOM in the cleanroom area for over 7 years now, reports on what exactly a cleanroom is and what it is like to work in such a facility.
Lisa Wieczorek already completed an apprenticeship as an industrial clerk at WOM before her dual course of studies in business administration. “I wanted to have solid vocational training before my professional career and I am happy to have chosen this path,” said the 23-year old from Saalfeld. “My vocational training has strengthened my belief that I should obtain a university degree and the basic skills of my vocational training is also helping me out during the first few semesters” explains Lisa W.
