A sea of new faces has washed over Mitsubishi HiTec Paper’s mills as it has welcomed 19 new apprentices.

The apprentices will cover all aspects of the company from machine operation to administration

Learning the ropes in all aspects of the business, the apprentices have begun an intensive training programme.

The company has taken on five paper technologists, three industrial mechanics, three electronics technicians, one cutting machine operator, four machine and plant operators, one IT specialist and two industrial clerks.

From large “state-of-the-art” production machines to administration and IT, Mitsubishi’s HiTec Paper’s skilled instructors will be on hand to give the apprentices help and advice.

Marcel Bornemann, human resources administrator for the Flensburg plant comments: “For us, training young people has been a priority for a long time. We also look outside the box; for example, coming soon, we have a one-day seminar on addiction prevention, because career and health go hand in hand.”

Ensuring the apprentices maintain a healthy work-life balance, the company is also organising fun training activities such as a medieval market in which visitors can experience the traditional art of paper making

The Mitsubishi HiTec Paper division of Mitsubishi Paper Mills produces inkjet papers, thermal papers, carbonless papers, label papers and barrier papers and has a total coating capacity of 185,000 tonnes of speciality paper each year.

Thirteen apprentices have joined the team at the company’s headquarters at Bielefeld mill, and six have joined the Flensburg mill, both of which are in Germany.
