Freudenberg India

A mixture of theory and practice in companies and at school—this is what makes the Dual Education System in Germany so unique. Today, the companies of the Freudenberg Group and Association Partners are welcoming young adults who are getting started in a Dual Education system. In India, our International Technology Company has been successfully educating people in the dual system for eight years in the South Indian town of Nagapattinam.

So far around 400 young adults have completed training here. The training center was founded as an aid project in 2008 to give young people a foundation for a better future. Today the center offers nationally recognized training programs for the occupations of Electrician, Welder, Machinist, Fitter and Mechanic Motor Vehicle (MMV).

Strong company values are the basis of all our business activities like Talent Management and the Entrepreneurial Leadership Development (FIELD) Programs, just to name a few. We live responsibly in everything we do–in the way we interact with our employees, our customers, business partners, neighbours and the environment. These values have been embedded in Freudenberg’s culture for more than 165 years and they continue to lead our daily activities.

Freudenberg India entities are strongly supported by a Leadership Development Program for talent identified by the business leaders. The program is delivered using an external training organization over 20 business days, spread over one year.

We value our association and long term relationship with the Indo-German Training Centre (IGTC). Together we have been able to work, learn and share our learnings with each other.
