In the 2021/2022 school year, Amersfoort will be the National Education City. From the Municipality, there are plenty of initiatives to boost education and the labour market. Through network programmes, teachers and the business community are brought into contact with each other, with the aim of improving the connection between education and the labour market. This will ensure that good professionals are and remain available for the future. Because there has been a shortage of these for years.
Working in engineering with personal guidance
As a modern, innovative and very progressive company within the manufacturing industry, Vanmac / TRILO is of course happy to be part of this initiative! After all, supporting young people who want to develop further within a technical company is one of our objectives. Whether you are still learning, looking for an internship or have already completed your education, we like to talk to people who want to develop further in a technical company that delivers skilled work.
Teachers meet company and employees
As part of the Docent in Bedrijf network programme, various teachers/supervisors from educational institutions in the Amersfoort region visited the Vanmac Group on Monday 4 October. A brief introduction was followed by a tour of the modern workshop. For over 50 years, professional vacuum sweepers, mowing sweepers, leaf blowers, verticute units and vacuum containers have been produced here under the TRILO® brand name. A number of employees from both the office and the workshop, explained to the visitors their work at Vanmac / TRILO. They also told how they ended up at the company and how they experience the support in the field of further development and internal training.
Deploying smart technology within the manufacturing industry
The overall organisation is growing enormously and constantly needs new people. In the modern workshop, at the welding department, but also in other departments such as Research & Development or Engineering. Modern techniques such as a ProductConfigurator, Internet of Things (IoT) applications and all kinds of applications are in full use.
By participating in the Docent in Bedrijf programme, Vanmac Group hopes to have presented a nice calling card to education representatives. So that they can draw the attention of their students to the great career opportunities available within our organisation.
