    ” We are very proud to actively participate in the promotion of these eco-currents

    The company J. Baertschi SA has always trained apprentices
    in the profession of conventional multi-spindle cam lathes bar turning machine (Mechapratician apprenticeship),
    as well as in the field of office automation (commercial apprenticeship).

    The aim of this initiative is to offer our apprentices a very favourable professional environment with a daily monitoring of their training in our own workshops.

    We thereby guarantee a high quality workforce on our "multi-spindle" production machines.

    This also allows us to anticipate the future of our company with serenity, by ensuring that we have future Bar Turners, and at the same time, to offer our trainees the opportunity to take advantage of the profession, as employees within our team.

    For reference, J. Baertschi SA was awarded with the first CEP prize in 2002 as the best apprentice training company.

    Each year, J. Baertschi SA studies the various applications of candidates interested in the field of bar turning or office automation.
