2020 training year gets underway at Heidelberg – digitization continues to gain momentum
At the Heidelberg site in Wiesloch-Walldorf alone, over 70 young people began their training/study course on September 1, 2020. In total, the figure was 99 for the company’s four sites in Germany.
The training year at Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) started on September 1, 2020. Despite the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, another 99 young men and women are embarking on their training or dual study courses at one of the company’s four sites in Wiesloch-Walldorf, Brandenburg, Amstetten, and Ludwigsburg. The focus is on production-related careers, such as training as a mechanic, mechatronics engineer, electronics engineer, or logistician. Digital learning content utilizing cutting-edge technologies is becoming increasingly important as digitization spreads throughout all areas of the company and new digital business models come to the fore. Practical examples include the use of augmented reality technology during service and maintenance work on presses, for instance. This trend applies across the board, to commercial specialties and dual study courses in all disciplines, as well as to technical and IT-related careers.
