Raumedic hires its 800th employee

Helmbrechts – Raumedic has its sights set on growth. In July, the company’s 800th employee signed an employment contract at the medical technology company. Thomas Schlesier will start working at the company’s headquarters in Helmbrechts, Germany, as an application engineer in the Systems Business Unit in August. 

The new employee will contribute both theoretical knowledge and practical experience in polymer processing. The 24-year-old said he made a conscious decision to join Raumedic: “My main reasons for joining the company were its high-name recognition and its proximity to my home.” Schlesier comes from Weißdorf, a town about 11 kilometers from the Raumedic headquarters. He is really excited about landing a job in his home region so soon after completing his training in plastic engineering: “I’m sliding smoothly from college to the work world, something I think is just great.”

Christina Hechtfischer, Head of HR at Raumedic, is just as thrilled: “Of course, I’m very proud about breaking the 800 barrier. We have certainly grown rapidly.” 

Raumedic had about 240 employees when it went into operations in 2004 after being spun off from Rehau AG. Today, around 550 employees work in Helmbrechts alone. The other employees are located in Feuchtwangen, Zwönitz (Saxony), Dietzenbach (Hesse) and seven locations outside Germany. The workforce will continue to grow, Christina Hechtfischer predicts. The company is constantly searching for skilled engineers as well as for employees in commercial and industrial areas.
