Dr. Franz Feurstein GmbH - Traun, Austria


Hello and welcome to the feurstein paper mill. You’ve probably heard of us before, haven’t you? If not: we belong to the international delfort group and are very #proud that we are #1 for specialty papers for the packaging and cigarette industry. Here at our location in Traun, around 300 employees develop and produce our cool papers on three paper machines. You can see these papers in use in the well-known burger restaurant with the large yellow “M”. 😉

Used all over the world for all kind of burgers, our burger papers keep your fingers clean and the burgers nice and #fresh. But hey, we’ll go one better: Since you’re already at the “M”, take a look at the French fries bags! We will give you three guesses where the paper is from!

As you can probably imagine by now, these packaging papers for the food industry sell like hot fries, uhhh… buns. So, we are always on the lookout for new apprentices who want to make a decent career with us.

And best of all: Because we are part of the large international delfort group, you also have the opportunity to work at another location after you have successfully completed your training. Until that happens, our super nice apprenticeship trainers are your mentors and supporters, so you’ll soon be a true expert in your field!
In the meantime, we look forward to welcoming you to cool activities, doing sports with you, and telling you about the numerous additional goodies and benefits at feurstein. Apply now and get to know us!

Do you still have questions? We are happy to be there for you!
