Plastics technology is highly diverse. There’s a wide spectrum of products that constitutes the entire component life cycle. And plastics technology is everywhere. A.

As a student, you’re totally on-board from day one

Als Student bist du bei uns vom ersten Tag an voll ins Team integriertYou could be deployed in many different departments – whether it’s development, production, product management or sales, whether it’s purchasing, marketing or personnel – in our globally active company we offer you a diverse range of deployment options.

No matter whether it’s in an internship or as a student worker: With us you’ll be fully involved in the practice from day one and are part of the team. The work is very practice-oriented. You learn how workflows and processes run in a global context and work on projects independently – e.g. you work together with international colleagues in the supply chain department. Here you contribute to making sure raw material arrive at their locations on time in order to ensure the timely production of customer orders.

We are also happy to support you in your final dissertation work. You will not only receive the opportunity to get to grips with a subject in a greater depth of detail, but can also implement this effectively.

Our students value the open, honest, respectful and friendly communication with their colleagues – regardless of the hierarchical level. You will be taken into your teams as an equal and can actively contribute to changes and improvements true to the values we live by: Open, Honest, Listen & Accountable. You are warmly invited to actively contribute to the target and to helping our company to improve on a continuous basis.

You can also profit from our employee services as a student. Thus we help you e.g. to balance your studies and your employment with us in the best way possible thanks to flexible working times. And our canteen with outdoor terrace takes care of your physical needs – Wi-Fi for all included! You can find out what other benefits we offer our employees here.
