Vocational Training

As a modern technical company, we employ a wide range of professions (vehicle mechanics, designers, logisticians, mechanics, and more). We are always on the lookout for well-trained and motivated specialists. We also train apprentices to become vehicle mechanics.

Vehicle Mechanic EFZ

A profession with perspectives

The training lasts 4 years and offers an interesting field of activity around trailers, superstructures, semi-trailers and special vehicles. Vehicle fitters work with a variety of different materials, with metal being the most important work material. They shape profiles and pipes into the desired shape. They work the workpieces and reconnect them later.

Vehicle fitters use plans to build the basic structure of a vehicle, assemble prepared parts, install the loading areas and equip the vehicle with the necessary accessories. The vehicle’s hydraulics and electrics are also part of the vehicle fitter’s area of responsibility. A completed apprenticeship as a vehicle fitter offers many opportunities for development and further training in technical professions.
