Future in the textile company: Apprenticeship at AG Cilander

We encourage and challenge young, committed people and accompany them on their way to becoming experts in various textile fields.


As a textile company with a long tradition, we see it as our task to make it easier for young people to enter the world of work and to provide them with professional training. This includes not only a reliable working environment but also the promotion of their continuous training and development. Whether a textile technologist specializing in mechatronics or finishing, a commercial clerk or a laboratory assistant specializing in textiles - our wide range of specializations offers various career prospects.

Training in the textile industry is very practice-oriented and goes far beyond the imparting of theoretical knowledge. Apprentices work in various areas of the company from the very beginning and thus gain a comprehensive insight into the individual (production) processes.

On average, we train twelve young professionals in the various departments and are constantly on the lookout for motivated and committed junior staff. At AG Cilander, newcomers can expect an open-minded corporate culture and a wide range of future prospects.
