The technical industry is always changing. The market dictates that it must become more efficient, more complex and faster. And that needs professional people. The toolmaking companies are therefore looking for – and will keep on looking for – high-quality, skilled (technical) staff. We are unfortunately seeing fewer and fewer young people choosing technology and metalworking. In addition, the ageing workforce means we are seeing a lot of professional staff leaving. In cooperation with Metaalunie (the Royal Dutch Association for the Metalworking Industry), DutchForm is working hard on promoting the profession, development, training and improving the intake.
