Polymechanic EFZ

Shape your future

Polymechanics process orders and projects. They manufacture prototypes, workpieces, tools and devices for production or assemble devices, apparatus, machines or systems. As the global market leader in automated cable processing, we open up a fascinating world to you. With dedicated trainers and a good working atmosphere, we can offer you the apprenticeship you are looking for.

As a polymechanic, you manufacture workpieces, make tools and devices for production and assemble devices, apparatus, machines and systems.

Polymechanics work on orders or projects in collaboration with other specialists, create technical documents, build prototypes and carry out tests. They are involved in commissioning, planning and monitoring production processes, and they carry out maintenance work on production plants.

The in-company training consists on the one hand of basic training, which is broadly based, and on the other hand of in-depth training in at least two areas of activity. The choice of the fields of activity depends on our possibilities and your inclinations and abilities.
