GROB Systems Apprenticeship Celebrates 30th Year

GROB Systems, a developer of manufacturing systems and machine tools, celebrates the 30th anniversary of its highly successful apprenticeship program. The program offers technical training and soft skills to prepare apprentices to be both highly-skilled technicians and well-rounded employees. It also includes electrical training in how to read electrical diagrams, wire control cabinets, troubleshoot machine faults and program PLCs.

In its 30 years, GROB has hired and trained over 380 apprentices. "These trained apprentices now work across the company making an impact everywhere from machine and panel shops, to sub-assembly, debug, final assembly and even to the engineering, marketing and sales & proposals departments," said a company spokesperson. "Almost 40% of GROB's current workforce in Bluffton is made up of past and current apprentices and currently include one C-level, two managers, 10 supervisors and 11 foremen across various departments."

Mike Meyer was a member of the inaugural class of 1990 and is now a Project Leader in GROB's Mechanical Engineering department. "The people of GROB are really the best part. Starting with local people in Bluffton and the surrounding areas in Ohio, then all of the international people we get a chance to work with, for me this is far and away the best part of GROB," said Meyer.
