Jenni Aakko

Chemical laboratory trainee, Kokkola, Finland

"I started out as a trainee in CABB Oy's quality control laboratory.
The training was part of my studies and after that I assisted colleagues in the laboratory. I'm really enjoying my time at CABB Oy. The work is very varied and I'm continually faced with exciting new challenges."

Maurice Stemmeler

Maurice Stemmeler

Chemical technician trainee, Knapsack, Germany

"In my view, CABB is just the right size for training as a chemical technician: it's large enough for a chemical technician in training to be able to become familiar with all process engineering steps. But CABB is not too big, meaning that a great team spirit has developed among all my colleagues."

Cornelia Panyi

Cornelia Panyi

Chemical technician trainee, Gersthofen, Germany

"The vocational training at CABB is just fantastic! All tasks are properly supervised and every procedure thoroughly explained. The best thing is that the training in the monochloroacetic acid business fits in 100% with my school lessons. I always feel safe at CABB, even though the plant and equipment are huge. CABB makes safety a top priority."

Dietmar Sattler

Chemical technician trainee, Gersthofen, Germany

"The first part of my vocational training at CABB was in the CES department. There, the focus is on learning theory. I solved new assignments every week and now know my theory, thanks in part to my friendly colleagues."

Thierry Wüthrich

Chemical and pharmaceutical technician trainee, Pratteln, Switzerland

"For me, CABB is the perfect place for a vocational training. I live close to the plant, so I’m really glad that CABB operates sustainably. Supervision of the trainees at CABB is very good, too. The work is varied, since it is divided in different theoretical and practical areas."
