Leasing instead of buying: The project “Machinery in schools” makes it possible for students to learn with state‑of‑the‑art machinery at all times.
To prepare apprentices properly for the working world, their training should be on the very latest machines. That is why TRUMPF launched a project entitled “Machinery in schools”. This makes it possible for vocational schools to use a leasing system providing them with state‑of‑the‑art machinery at all times. They have an option to replace the machines every five years.
This project is embedded in a long‑term program of cooperation with the school. In the pilot project the vocational schools in the town of Bretten benefit from a new press brake and a laser cutting machine. In the eyes of the school’s director, Barbara Sellin, the equipment was delivered at just the right time. “Particularly in a time period where there is a shortage of skilled labor, it is very important to ready students for their careers as thoroughly as possible.” The companies located in the region are just as enthusiastic about the training their apprentices receive.
