Your apprenticeship at Teufelberger

Sports enthusiasts on high ropes courses will put their trust in you. Ski vacationers will feel safe in their gondolas. And online shopping will continue to break sales records. All thanks to you and your work! Ropes and strapping made by Teufelberger carry and secure things and safeguard people around the globe – including you! Are you ready for your apprenticeship in a multifaceted and international product universe?

We stand for creative freedom, sustainability, and a respectful, family-like work environment in which we continue to learn from one another, day after day. Our successful family-managed group is well-known for upholding these values as an apprentice-training business and reputed for our unique product solutions: from the suspension ropes of the Westring Bridge in Linz to the climbing ropes used in ascending the Eiger North Face, and to secure package strapping.


Expertise and experience. Your apprenticeship at Teufelberger more than just “work & vocational school”.

Our apprentices will be actively involved in our operations from day one and will also be managing their own projects.

Within the framework of the Climate Checkers Project, our apprentices developed a recycling concept that involves collecting PET bottles all around our premises. From these bottles, PET material is recovered by a recycling firm which is then processed into plastic strapping in our manufacturing facilities.

Upper Austria’s Environment and Climate Councilor Stefan Kaineder visited our company in person to inspect this amazing project launched by our “climate checkers”.

Yes! At Teufelberger, we give you the benefit of the doubt and a chance, even if you do not have a school-leaving diploma.

3. Check in & get going! What your first days at Teufelberger will be like. At the end of August, before embarking on your apprenticeship, you will be invited to come along to the “Apprentice College”. There, you will spend a day with our team of apprentices in order to get to know them.

All new apprentices start their apprenticeships on September 1 of the respective year. The first day serves as a welcoming day, which kicks off with a breakfast for all new apprentices and our trainers. Afterwards, you will be informed about how things work at our company, what you should keep in mind, and what you will be doing during your first days at work. We have stylish company-issued work clothes for apprentices, which will be handed out to you on your first day. And we will also show you around our two manufacturing facilities on our Vogelweiderstraße premises.

You will discuss your training plan with your trainer, and, during the first few weeks, an apprentice buddy assigned to you will assist and support you in your day-to-day work.
