Job application as the first career move

Wörwag is worldwide not the biggest manufacturer of coating solutions, but we make things move in the industry.

And it is not just a result of heavy constructional and agricultural machinery being coated in our paints. Far more, we can afford to be different which is why we need employees that would like not only successful career but also to change the world of coatings. People working at Wörwag are sometimes pioneers in the development of new technologies. A recent example was for instance the implementation of the Integrated Painting Process (IPP) or the further development of the innovative painted film technology.

Many of the Wörwag staff speak Swabian, the local dialect, but the company also has roots all round the world. An international team, job placements abroad, intensive know-how transfer in the growing markets in China, USA and Latin America – the environment is dynamic. And Wörwag is successful. A company with perspectives. To convince yourself, all you have to do is send us a job application. Whether after graduating or after successfully completing a traineeship – the doors at Wörwag are wide open. If in any doubt, just call in at the reception.
