The plastics company from the Ottengrüner Heide is pleased to be able to welcome its 600th employee. Michael Künzel joined the medical technology company in April as a development engineer in the assembly/catheters division as the 600th employee.
Until recently, the native of Upper Franconia had been working far away, and he is happy to have found a job at RAUMEDIC near where he is from. Working in an interesting field of activity is important to the mechanical engineer. Versatility is always on the agenda at this plastics processing company, since all product development is customer-specific. And that is exactly what the young engineer likes. He does not just want to be a desk jockey – he likes to tinker and he also lends a hand. And that is what is expected of him as an application engineer at RAUMEDIC in the interface between global distribution, marketing, and sales on the one hand and production in Helmbrechts on the other. He will get an intensive introduction to all areas in order to learn about the development and production processes of plastics products from the bottom up.
It is important to Christina Hechtfischer, personnel manager, that all new employees receive good training. "The experienced colleagues from production train the new employees at the machines so they get a feel for the special features of manufacturing products for the medical technology and pharmaceutical industry."
RAUMEDIC is growing and growing: "In 2015 alone we hired 42 new employees in a wide variety of areas in the company worldwide," says Walter Reingruber, human resources manager responsible for all RAUMEDIC plants in Germany. Michael Künzel and his colleagues will move into their work places at the new plant in a short time. Then there will finally be room for the many new hires planned this year. RAUMEDIC is currently seeking 30 new employees in various areas: experienced professionals, career changers, trainees, and apprenticeship students.
