Hanover, Germany -- With funding from the Hungarian State and European Union, ContiTech Air Spring Systems has created an education programme for employees at its plant in NyÃregyhÃ¡za, Hungary, a company statement said.
Around 150 of the 180 employees at the plant have received or will receive professional training to prepare them for future assignments and safeguard their jobs, Conti said.
â€œThe programme imparts special know-how to our employees. That arms them with greater versatility and gives us greater latitude in deploying them in the manufacture of the increasingly sophisticated products needed to meet our customers' new demands,â€ ContiTech ceo, Heinz-Gerhard Wente, said in the statement.
The further education concept is part of the Hungarian economic stimulus program TÃMOP (Operative Program of Social Renovation). The European Union has made Euro 500 000 available for it, Conti added.
Employees at Conti's Phoenix Air Spring Technology Kft. Plant, which produces air spring systems for trucks, driver cabs, industrial applications and rail vehicles, will also benefit as the programme will â€œgo a long way to ensure the further employment of the location's entire 200-strong workforce,â€ the statement said.
