Our apprenticeships

Industrial Management Assistant

Today’s industrial clerks work with customers, suppliers, and modern information technology. After completing their training, they find jobs in purchasing, logistics, production control, marketing, human resources, controlling, sales, or accounting departments.

The focus of the training here lies in the areas of purchasing, sales, human resources, financial and cost accounting. You will learn to source raw materials at the best price, secure supplies, find the personnel and materials needed for production, and sell the products we manufacture.

During your training at STETTLER, you will become familiar with the various departments in our company so that you can start thinking about the direction of your future career.

Production Technologist

Production technologists plan industrial production processes, set up production systems, and put them into operation. They also monitor and document production processes.

From the development department to serial production and product support: as a production technologist, you will apply your expertise in a number of areas. For example, you might simulate processes, produce samples and prototypes, and test them.

Process technician for plastics and rubber technology

The latest technology and production equipment, new plastics, and high quality requirements characterise the work of a process technician. Process technicians work in our production facility as systems and team supervisors.

The field of plastics and rubber technology processes has evolved from the plastics moulder. Process technicians are needed wherever plastics and derivative products are developed, sampled, manufactured and tested.

At STETTLER, you will be trained as a highly qualified and sought-after specialist in the industrial manufacture of plastic products. The career offers a wide range of opportunities and includes working with modern equipment, care and maintenance tasks, quality assurance, and communication with and controlling computerised systems.

Tool mechanic

Your job is to manufacture tools of all kinds for industrial series production. You mainly manufacture metal and plastic parts or produce surgical instruments. In your apprenticeship as a tool mechanic you are right there where the interesting part of the work takes place. Drilling, milling, hammering – as a tool mechanic, you will learn to read technical drawings and to manufacture tools exactly according to given dimensions. This includes the functional assembly, the testing of the components and of course the repair.

Mechatronics engineer

Mechatronic engineers assemble, install and maintain mechatronic machines, plants and systems in coordination with the customer. You work at the interface between mechanics, electronics and information technology. The profession is future-oriented and offers many opportunities for advancement.

Machine and system operator

Machine and system operators monitor the production process and control and monitor the material flow. In addition, they inspect or maintain machines at regular intervals to ensure that they are operational. For example, you refill oils or coolants and lubricants and replace wearing parts such as seals, filters or hoses.
