Future Raumedic trainees get to know their employer

Helmbrechts – Even before the official start of training, medical technology manufacturer Raumedic opened the doors of its Helmbrechts headquarters to its future trainees. The company greeted its 14 new trainees during a welcoming ceremony on July 25.

In what has now become a tradition known as Welcome Day, the youth were able to get their first glimpses behind the scenes of their new employer. One highlight of the tour of the two office and factory buildings was the visit to the clean room production, where medical-grade plastics take shape in extrusion and injection molding processes.

The “newbies” were also treated to a visit with their fellow trainees from earlier training years. The young professionals were able to experience first hand what it’s like to complete commercial, technical or industrial training at Raumedic. The company’s instructors also gave the career starters practical tips and an overview of the exciting period ahead of them.

“With Welcome Day, we want to make the transition to their professional lives easier for our trainees and help relieve some of the nervousness before their first real day of work,” explains Walter Reingruber, Senior HR Manager at Raumedic. “It helps for them to get to know each other – and us instructors – before the start of training.” 

The application period for training year 2019 at Raumedic opened in mid-June. For information about career entry opportunities offered by the Helmbrechts-based company, visit
