Supported by the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs, Health, Women and Family from funds of the European Social Fund and the State of Brandenburg.


Starting point

The ground-breaking ceremony on 26/9/2018 marked the official start of construction and  recruiting of the PM2.

The aim is to build the most cutting-edge and technologically advanced paper machine.

Traditional analogue paper production is increasingly accompanied by digital networking and control of all value-added processes. In order to meet the growing demands of employees for individual support and thus to remain attractive as employers, concepts geared to individual support are playing an increasingly important role.

Within the framework of the project, both the existing jobs were secured and new jobs were created.

Support measure

Depending on their previous knowledge, between 2019 and 2021, new employees will be trained using the modular advanced training concept.

The concept consists of 4 pillars. Analysis and data competence is a focal point. With the introduction of an e-learning platform in particular, we want to make it easier for our colleagues to learn and access information. The advanced training is specifically designed to enable employees to operate the most modern and technologically advanced paper machine.

European Social Fund

The European Social Fund (ESF) is Europe's main instrument for the promotion of employment. It promotes equal opportunities on the labour market, supports people in accessing better jobs and in vocational training and qualification.

In the state of Brandenburg, ESF funding programmes in the 2014-2020 funding period are aimed at improving employment opportunities and promoting education, securing skilled workers and integration into employment. The ESF thus contributes to poverty reduction and to strengthening social cohesion.

The ESF invests in people. It supports companies and employees in qualifying and securing skilled workers. The ESF promotes equal opportunities and access to employment. It thus makes a contribution to strengthening social cohesion and combating poverty.
