After 2021 and 2022, the German Plastics Center SKZ is once again awarding the "Premium Partner Education" distinction to ten companies that have worked with the SKZ to advance continuing education in the plastics industry in the previous year. The company Schaeffler from Höchstadt receives the award for the third time in a row for the comprehensive and innovative cooperation in education and training in the plastics industry.

"The shortlist of candidates includes companies that work with us to develop innovative learning formats, sustainably promote and expand employee training, and decisively advance the plastics industry beyond the standard through professional training," reports Matthias Ruff, Sales Manager Education & Research at SKZ in Würzburg. The award is always presented for the previous year. In 2022, Schaeffler and the SKZ jointly implemented new training courses in the plastics sector, further promoted innovative learning and are pushing further learning projects for the coming years. "As the Höchstadt campus, we are proud to have received the Premium Partner Education award again. Especially in 2023, the cooperation with SKZ will be further expanded in the direction of sustainability," explains Tina Paulus, Project Management Learning Organization.
Established learning formats such as classroom courses on machines and plants or online training will be used again in 2023 by the partners, Schaeffler Academy, Learning Organization Höchstadt and SKZ. "Continuing to drive forward the tried and tested and adapting new formats and content to the increasing expectations of the plastics industry; this forms the basis for qualified and motivated employees," Robert Held, Head of Education in the Injection Molding and Additive Manufacturing division, concludes.
