Start of the apprenticeship
DITTER PLASTIC GmbH + Co KG welcomes new apprentices.
We make a significant contribution to promoting young people and continue to pursue our philosophy of ensuring that employees gain the necessary qualifications through excellent training. If the apprentices complete their training successfully, nothing stands in the way of being hired on, creating a seamless transition from the apprenticeship to professional life.
Works Council Chairman Roland Storch emphasises: "We are pleased about the new colleagues. Apprenticeships have a high priority at DITTER PLASTIC. We have numerous examples of qualified colleagues who have trained with us and are available to us today in important positions."

Plant tour for apprentices
Together with their training supervisors, our apprentices combined business with pleasure by taking a plant tour of the company Arburg in Loßburg, our supplier for injection moulding machines.
The afternoon at the “Hirschgrund Zipline Area” in Schiltach presented an exciting programme at lofty heights. The group was awaited by various courses consisting of seven zip lines promising an adventure filled with speed, fun and the feeling of taking off.
Later during dinner, the interns recalled the events of the day, and everyone agreed that the outing was a great success.

Chrome effect paints and antimicrobial paints
Cutting-edge innovations in surface technology
Plastic parts can be painted with chrome effect paints, thereby lending the optical appearance of a galvanised component. The decade-long development represents an environmentally friendly and cost-effective material finishing.
The use of antimicrobial paint systems is becoming increasingly common in medical technology. In addition to the antibacterial effect, the paints also possess a high level of structural and variant diversity.

According to the special press release dated 23.07.2020, the Fakuma international trade fair for plastics processing has been postponed to 2021.
