Together against youth unemployment and skills shortage: thyssenkrupp Materials Services and JOBLINGE continue to join forces

  • Collaboration to place disadvantaged young people in the labor market extended for another year

  • thyssenkrupp Materials Services provides 1:1 mentoring and application support in the search for an apprenticeship

  • JOBLINGE contributes its expertise in job placement, thyssenkrupp Materials Services offers internships and apprenticeships as well as insights into career fields

More than one in two companies in Germany considers the shortage of skilled workers to be one of the greatest business risks. These are the results of the latest economic survey conducted by the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DIHK) in February. There are approximately 260,000 unfilled apprenticeships in Germany, while about 180,000 unemployed people are looking for an apprenticeship. To help close this skills gap, thyssenkrupp Materials Services has become a regional partner of the non-profit organization JOBLINGE. After a successful start in 2023, the cooperation has now been extended for another year. The focus of the cooperation is on placing young people in apprenticeships who are often at a disadvantage in the application process due to their social or migration background.

Reducing energy costs and increasing eco-efficiency: thyssenkrupp Materials IoT expands IIoT and MES platform toii® with energy monitoring

The energy transition confronts companies with major challenges. Renewable energies and energy-efficient operations have become a key economic factor. The new energy monitoring tool toii®.Energy from thyssenkrupp Materials IoT, a spin-off from thyssenkrupp Materials Services, supports manufacturing companies in optimizing their energy efficiency and achieving their sustainability goals.


Transparency through energy measurement

With the new energy monitoring tool toii®.Energy, software developer and digitalization service provider thyssenkrupp Materials IoT is expanding the range of services offered by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Manufacturing Execution System (MES) platform toii®. The integrated tool forms the basis for successful energy management and creates transparency in manufacturing companies with regard to the power consumption of machines and plants. Previously, it was unclear how much power the machines were consuming and when peak loads were reached, but now this data is visible and can even be associated with individual orders and products. In this way, toii®.Energy supports companies in achieving their own sustainability goals and significantly reducing operational energy costs. "Thanks to our digitalization expertise, we create transparency on the shop floor, make energy consumption visible across all locations and identify potential savings – a crucial basis for effective energy management," says Sebastian Lang, CEO of thyssenkrupp Materials IoT.
