The 10-year anniversary was officially celebrated on October 24 with traditional Indian ceremonies, project work and sporting events. The celebration was attended by local politicians, students, teachers and Freudenberg employees. Also present was Dr. Tilman Krauch, Chief Technology Officer and Freudenberg Group Board of Management member, who called the training center “a beacon for the national ‘Make in India’ program, designed to support innovation, enhance skills development and build best-in-class manufacturing infrastructure in the country.”
Georg Graf, Regional Representative for the Freudenberg Group in India added: "Skill development is an essential part of the drive to build on India's socio-economic infrastructure. Closing the critical gap between manpower availability and employability is important to create long-term job opportunities."
In addition, the Freudenberg Training Center is increasingly taking on female trainees. Some 670 million women live in India. Only a quarter of them have a paid job. Equal opportunity is becoming ever more important. Around the world – Freudenberg stands for equal opportunity. As a values-based technology group, we work to create innovations that improve people's quality of life.
