At our location, we help promote a positive life style in our region.

Environmental protection, economic success and social responsibility go hand in hand at Hamburger Containerboard. That is why we have invested heavily in environmental and safety measures as well as training and development in recent years.

We believe social responsibility is about strengthening the quality of our products and thus maintaining jobs at the various sites in their respective regions. We support the regional economy by placing orders with companies within the region.

We live an active coexistence with the inhabitants of surrounding areas at our sites: By supporting local institutions, such as sponsorship of the Gerald Asamoah Foundation for children with heart disease and the city of Gelsenkirchen, etc., we make an active contribution to the social life of our direct neighbours.

We value a collegial and innovative working atmosphere and encourage an entrepreneurial spirit amongst our employees. Training courses, advanced education programmes and performance incentives strengthen the team spirit and increase motivation.

Our employees assume responsibility for our goals on a daily basis through well-founded training and advanced education. In this way we jointly work towards our success.

Hamburger Containerboard needs qualified and motivated employees. Therefore, it is important for us to conduct our own training of competent employees in all areas of the business. We regularly make presentations of the apprenticeship courses and training that we offer, both in the technical and commercial field, at career fairs, including the TalentMesse Ruhr and the Vocatium.

For us, education means assuming a great deal of responsibility and commitment. We impart all relevant educational contents as well as company-specific specialist knowledge. Well-founded education and numerous further training measures are the basis for the success we jointly achieve with our employees.

Kian Tosun - Paper Technologist in his second year of training

“The training programme is unique and cannot be found anywhere else. The career as a Paper Technologist is an exciting and worthwhile learning experience, with many values that you take on board and can transfer to everyday life as well as use in training, such as coordination, teamwork or a sense of responsibility. So, if you find the idea of an office job boring, then this is the place for you!” 

Luis Böhme - Industrial Fitter in his second year of training

Industrial Fitters carry a lot of responsibility, which is why good team spirit and close consultation with my colleagues are very important to me. The work that awaits you every day is exciting and interesting, but it must be carried out with the utmost care. If you enjoy repairing plant and equipment, and you want a career position with future prospects in a constantly growing company, then you've come to the right place.
