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!

    Meet our apprentice Christian! He is currently doing an apprenticeship in IT Systems Engineering at our wattenspapier location in Austria.   “The first days and weeks were very exciting. I immediately felt at home in the company and no matter where I went, I always received an answer and a helping hand. I was pleasantly surprised that already in the very first month I was given my own tasks to complete.” Learn about Christian's experience as a member of #teamdelfort on our blog Apprentices challenge ‘the way we’ve always done it’ mentality and bring fresh new ideas. Learn more about our apprentice and full-time opportunities at wattenspapier #apprenticeships #apprentice #workexperience #lehrlinge

    The material you select to package your goods speaks volumes about your brand vision and product quality. Consumers are aware of how packaging impacts the planet and actively support companies that use responsible packaging. Additionally, policymakers have begun implementing ambitious waste reduction targets and recycling regulations.  We are working together with our R&D partner DELSCI GmbH to meet this demand by creating the next generation of packaging – lightweight, recyclable, fiber-based solutions with functional barriers. In our new recyclability series, we will deep dive into how we use science, collaboration, and innovation to design some of the best recyclable barrier paper packaging solutions on the market.

    Traveling on two wheels is a fun and environmentally friendly way to get to work. We invited team delfort colleagues from our Wattenspapier location to take part in an initiative to encourage cycling to work. Since May, our 22 participating employees have biked more than 12 700 km while commuting to work! 💪 Not only is biking fun and good for your health, it's also good for the environment. Choosing a bike over a car just once a day can reduce the average person’s transportation-related emissions by 67%. Cyclists received gifts that could be used for their future bike rides such as water bottles, bags, and jerseys. Congratulations to all our participating colleagues – safe and happy travels! 🚲 #teamdelfort #cyclingtowork

    With fantastic growth in recent years for paper packaging, young talents with knowledge in paper making and paper technology will have many exciting and wide-ranging career opportunities after graduating. 🎓   This week, we welcomed students from the Munich University of Applied Sciences. The students, who are in their final year of studying paper technology, visited delfort’s Feurstein mill and delfort’s R&D partner DELSCI GmbH. Students saw firsthand what it will be like working in the innovation and production of specialty paper.   We offer a result-oriented and collaborative culture that empowers employees to drive excellence and innovation with a major impact on the future. We hope to see these students again when they are ready to launch their careers. Together with the next generation of paper experts, we will continue to revolutionize paper! 🚀 #paperpackaging #paperrevolution
