Trainee programmes

Groundbreaking prospects

As a trainee at ALPLA, I gained insight into individual departments and got to know the company from the ground up. What makes my job so exciting is the international environment and the travel. My responsibilities are extremely diverse and require a high degree of technical expertise.
