Toolmakers, machinists or specialists for logistics – the Feintool universe offers many exciting entry points into the career world. Jose Lopes Vicente, trainer, was with the trainees Lukas Dehm and Pascal Möller on site and explains, “Our primary goal with our appearance at the fair was to persuade as many young people as possible to pursue technical training with Feintool. The focus was on the training and development opportunities with Feintool Ohrdruf.
