In the first week of February a new batch of thirteen students started their internship at Shin-Etsu. Together with them we also welcomed a new colleague at the Botlek location in the position of Work Planner. The first day was all about the introduction for all. The morning session consisted of various presentations from, for example, the HR, QHSE and IT departments. Our Plant Instructors took care of the afternoon part at both production locations. That consisted of a presentation about the production process and of course a tour of the plant. In the coming months, all trainees will be fully involved in the operator teams of our two factories, Botlek and Pernis, and in the Maintenance, Technical Services and Customer Services departments in Pernis and Hilversum.
