Zanders hires three mechatronics engineer trainees who have just completed their apprenticeship. Thanks to the good order situation and the overall positive development of the paper producer, the three new colleagues are urgently needed.

Thomas Doering, Head of Human Resources at Zanders:
“The hiring of the three mechatronics engineers is another sign that Zanders continues to invest in his personal future. And we remain particularly attractive to young people who are looking for an apprenticeship position because it is very likely and our clear goal that they will be hired after they have successfully completed their training.”

Zanders currently employs 362 people and 16 apprentices.

The area of operation of mechatronics engineers is extensive and includes among others: setting up and assembling machines, programming of mechatronic systems, installation and testing of hardware and software, initial operation of machines including functional and safety tests. The three new specialists will need all these skills daily in view of the large machinery of Zanders with two paper machines, seven Chromolux coaters (cast coaters), one standard coater, five reel slitting machines, eight sheeting machines, one small format sheeting line as well as packing lines for reels and sheets.

And Zanders is looking for even further new colleagues, e.g. measurement and control technicians, production workers as well as apprentices as papertechnologists, mechatronicstechnicians and machine and plant operators. Detailed job descriptions can be found in our Career page.
