Koehler Group Invests in the Future: Willstätt Campus to Set New Benchmarks for Apprenticeship

All news

In 2022, the Koehler Group acquired the former Orsay site in Willstätt directly adjacent to Beaver Paper, a Koehler Group company. Around 170 jobs will be based at the new ‘Willstätt Campus’ in the medium term. Koehler will use the premises to develop a modern, attractive apprenticeship center for technical apprenticeship that meets Koehler’s high training quality standards and corroborates the Best Place to Learn quality seal.

State-of-the-art equipment elevates the quality of the already high standard of apprenticeship

The Koehler Group is currently training around 90 junior employees at different locations. Demand for qualified junior staff is much higher than that, however. The new technical apprenticeship center in Willstätt will significantly increase apprenticeship numbers. The apprenticeship center will offer 30 training places per year for electronics technicians, industrial mechanics technicians, and mechatronics technicians. The available training space is five times larger than the existing training workshop and will provide a range of training rooms and state-of-the-art learning workstations for basic skills in the various fields. When redesigning the building, the company wanted to create a lasting impression. An expansive glass facade and elegant gallery offering a view over the workshop floor are just some of the design elements that will make the new training center highly attractive.
