MAN Diesel & Turbo opens up new perspectives to apprentices from manroland

The apprentices from the insolvent printing press manufacturer manroland will be joining MAN Diesel & Turbo on 1st March 2012. The company is taking over 116 of the total of 145 apprentices, who are working in Augsburg. The remaining 30 apprentices will be employed at manroland webservice, a successor company to the printing press manufacturing firm.

“We are absolutely delighted to be able to offer these opportunities to the manroland apprentices,” says Dr. René Umlauft, CEO of MAN Diesel & Turbo and deputy member of the Executive Board of MAN SE. “It is very important for us to safeguard the successful training and professional futures of the young people.”

In February 2011, MAN Diesel & Turbo welcomed 20 trainees from man-roland, with a further 16 switching to RENK AG in Augsburg, a company in which the MAN Group holds a majority share. MAN Diesel & Turbo is investing an additional approximately Euro 6 million in its training for taking over the apprentices.

The MAN Training Academy in Augsburg is the largest training centre in Bavarian Swabia. Currently around 470 apprentices from the companies MAN Diesel & Turbo, RENK and manroland, as well as further partner firms in the Augsburg economic area, receive training in eleven industrial/technical disciplines.
