Rittal – The System

Where: Region of Lahn-Dill, Germany.

What: Creates job opportunities for refugees by helping them to acquire marketable skills via an internship at Rittal, the largest member company in the family-owned Friedhelm Loh Group. With the support of dedicated instructors/mentors, the interns acquire sufficient hands-on experience to begin a recognised multi-year training programme.

Organisation: RITTAL – the system company.

Start Date: May 2015.

Success: Eight refugees successfully completed this three-month internship in July 2017. Two refugees are staying on at Rittal for their training – and the others now have documentation and knowledge that will serve them well when applying to other companies for similar skills development courses. The pilot project has now finished, but the initiative is set to continue.
