What kind of vocational training is right for me? Many young people ask themselves this question when their time at high school comes to an end. We believe that a young person’s future career should be exciting and varied with good future prospects – and, of course, fun too! Is this asking too much? Definitely not.

We offer a variety of exciting opportunities for motivated high school graduates. In addition to sophisticated training, we offer many additional benefits – for example, performance bonuses for achieving good grades at vocational school and performing good work in our company, a meal allowance for our staff canteen, and even free use of the company gym.

The topic of training is a high priority for us. While we naturally place a strong emphasis on helping you to achieve your training goals, we also believe that creating an open and honest corporate culture is equally important.

An apprenticeship or course of study at the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) with rose plastic will lay the perfect foundations for your entry into professional life. We will support you with exciting and unique training seminars as well as a training program that will open up a wealth of future opportunities.

As a media technologist, every day is different: retooling machines, preparing printing plates, remixing inks. And of course, if necessary, troubleshooting, readjusting the machines and fiddling around until everything runs smoothly.
