Making a difference

Sustainability takes many different forms at DEUTZ, but the focus is always on people. Not least when it comes to careers.

Complete the vocational apprenticeship first, then go on to university: DEUTZ apprentices Bianca Kersthold and Simon Lenz know exactly what they want their future career to look like. And DEUTZ is an integral part of it. 

Bianca Kersthold knew from an early age which direction she would take. The 21-year-old inherited her love of technology from her father, an electrician, and embarked on a mechatronics apprenticeship at DEUTZ in 2020: “As an international company, it offers me plenty of options, from vocational training and work-based degrees to exciting career prospects.” She particularly enjoys working closely with engineers from different areas and appreciates the working environment and team spirit, which is why she takes great pride in getting involved in the Welcome Days for new apprentices.

Nineteen-year-old Simon Lenz has been on a metal engineering apprenticeship since 2020, and hopes to graduate from it as a production mechanic. He first became aware of his employer through a newspaper article about E-DEUTZ, and was particularly drawn to the fact that this long-established company was increasingly going green by developing new drive technologies. He values the high quality of the training and the trust placed in him. Operating a test rig for the first time was a particular highlight for Lenz: “Being responsible for the engine and participating in research and development was really exciting.”

For more than a century, DEUTZ has attached great importance to training its own apprentices. As a result, the engine manufacturer’s apprentices have won 36 regional awards, 17 state-level awards, and four awards at national level since 2010 alone. Bianca Kersthold and Simon Lenz hope to join their ranks at the end of their training.
