Training & Studies

16. December 2021

The subject of “training” is a matter close to our hearts. We are all the more pleased that every year young people start on their career path at TEKO – and in 2021 five started at the same time! This was not only a new phase for the trainees and students, but also for TEKO. After all, we have expanded our range of training and study programmes and are providing training in new areas.

Alicia Ciotta began her commercial training as an Industrial Clerk. This is very varied – the trainees go through all job-relevant areas, which provides them with a comprehensive insight into the entire company and they can discover for themselves what is most important to them.


Nick Volz is also doing an apprenticeship as an Industrial Clerk – in combination with a Joint Degree in Innovation Management BA at the BGBA Hanau ( The prospective Innovation Managers learn to act as a link between research, technical development, production, marketing & sales, controlling and corporate management and successfully develop innovations in the company.

Michelle Eckers started her apprenticeship as a Technical Product Designer. This is the first time we are offering this training. It covers, among other things, the creation of technical documentation, computer-controlled construction of 3D models using CAD programs, materials science and industrial design. This training includes a technical aspect – all designs must be feasible in production of course. That is why constant communication with the areas of work preparation, production and product management forms a crucial part of this job. Ms. Eckers switched directly to the second year of training in December and shortened her training by at least a year.


Since mid-November we have been training Jan Arnold to become IT Specialist for System Integration. In the second year of his apprenticeship, Mr. Arnold moved from another company to TEKO in order to complete his training with us. The job revolves around the planning and configuration of IT systems – this is extremely important, not least in view of the advancing digitization. And having another sector specialist on-site is ideal for TEKO.

Joint studies at TEKO

In addition to commercial training, the development of the refrigeration industry is of course extremely important to us – because we all conscious of the ongoing shortage of skilled workers in the refrigeration and air conditioning sectors. This is why we offer the 3-year joint study program leading to a Bachelor of Science – Refrigeration System Technology. In October Florian Roos began studying at the European Study Academy for Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Ventilation (EsaK), which alternates with practical phases at TEKO. In this way, he can put his theoretical knowledge directly into practice and internalize it.
