Competitors taking part in the technical modeling discipline at WorldSkills 2013 will not just be working with the same material. They will be working with the very best: all the materials at the disposal of the up-and-coming model makers for creating a prototype model using 3D CAD data and a 2D drawing come from the RAKU-TOOL® product portfolio of RAMPF Tooling – from the MB-0670 board material for modeling and the UP-4310/ UH-4900 pastes to the PF-3700-1 fast cast resin polyol with AC-9004 filler.

“We are delighted to support the WorldSkills competitors with our modeling materials and know-how. We would like to wish them every success and, above all, lots of fun at this fantastic event,” says Heinz Horbanski, Managing Director of RAMPF Tooling.Up to 65 countries and regions take part in WorldSkills, which is held every two years. Talented young professionals up to the age of 22 compete in several areas and disciplines. Virtually every profession is covered – from car body painting and carpentry to web design.

Training secures an innovative future
The commitment to WorldSkills 2013 further underlines the great importance the RAMPF Group companies attach to professional training. “Our company’s success is based on our ability to provide our customers with innovative solutions. This is possible because our employees embrace our culture of innovation. In this way, our training secures the innovative future of our company,” Michael Rampf, CEO of RAMPF Holding, emphasizes.

The RAMPF Group offers a wide range of chemical/technical, commercial and IT training opportunities. Overall, the five Group companies – RAMPF Giessharze, RAMPF Dosiertechnik, RAMPF Tooling, EPUCRET Mineralgusstechnik and RAMPF Ecosystems – currently have 21 trainees. “Our aim is to continuously improve the quantity and quality of our training opportunities. In response to the current skills shortage, demographic change and fiercer competition due to globalization, we have set ourselves the goal of being one of the best in our industry,” says Sabrina Rall, HR Manager at RAMPF Holding.

From intern to laboratory manager
Joining RAMPF as a trainee is a good move. The company’s very first trainee, Martina Defrancesco, started her training as an industrial business management assistant in 1991. She now works for RAMPF Tooling’s in-house sales service.Alexander Ege, who worked in the quality assurance laboratory at RAMPF Giessharze and completed two practical semesters at RAMPF Giessharze and RAMPF Tooling during his studies, is now Laboratory Manager Tooling/Polyurethane at RAMPF Tooling.

And these are just two of many employees who have both trained at RAMPF and carved out careers for themselves there.Further information about the RAMPF Group’s training opportunities is available at:
