WORK TOUR TO DAIMLER TRUCK AG

Bild_Betriebsauflug_KundenCenter-DaimlerTrucks_550x550px.png

Forgetting work for a while and enjoying a lovely afternoon together.

On Wednesday, 10 April 2024 at 12.00 noon, we set off from Lahr by bus towards the town of Wörth am Rhein. Upon our arrival in Wörth we enjoyed a fantastic tour of the Daimler Truck AG commercial vehicle assembly plant. 

Before embarking on the plant tour we checked in at the customer centre and admired the vehicles on display there. The ninety-minute plant tour flew by. To conclude our visit we had a group photo taken in front of the new e-truck and then returned to Lahr by bus.


It was a real pleasure to spend a wonderful afternoon with so many colleagues. The event gave us a great opportunity for a relaxed, private chat with our colleagues.

THE POLAR BEARS ARE BACK!

Beitrag Webseite Firmenlauf.png

On Friday 5th  July 2024, the starting shot for the Lahr company marathon will sound for the sixth time. We have been involved since the first company marathon in Lahr and are delighted to be a sponsor for the second time. 


The Lahr company marathon is popular in the region. Every year, cheerful and motivated employees from hundreds of companies come together in excited anticipation of this running event!

Last year, almost half of the POLAR-FORM workforce participated. Apprentices and colleagues from various departments all turned out – whether as runners or to cheer on or help cool down their colleagues ;-).


We are already looking forward to the evening together, hopefully in the presence of many POLAR Bears.

 
So let’s get training! :-)

NEW: JOBXPEDITION Basecamp from 13 April 2024

JobXpedition_PF_Webseite_550x550pxl.jpg

This year, as part of our apprenticeship program, we are once again inviting young people to come and learn more about us.

 

This time, however, young "expedition participants" will have an opportunity to discover more about the available apprenticeships and participating companies before this year's JOBXPEDITION kicks off, by attending our Basecamp (Marktstrasse 33, Lahr). 

The event opens its doors on 13 April and there will be 8 dates for companies to introduce themselves and their available apprenticeship trades. We will be at Basecamp on 18 May 2024 and are already looking forward to welcoming the young "expedition participants". 


Internships are secured with just 3 clicks and we will also assist with registration. Work placements for day or a week – next week or during the summer holidays – everything is possible. The young participants can decide for themselves when they would like to do their placement – and for how long.
Further information on the program and dates can be found here.

Training successfully completed

Ausbildung_abgeschlossen!.png

We have achieved a major milestone and would like to congratulate our apprentices on passing their examinations!


The entire POLAR-FORM team would like to congratulate our two former apprentices Jan and Maximilian for passing their final exams and becoming fully-fledged toolmakers. Completing their training means they have taken a very important step in their lives. The apprentices learned a great deal during their apprenticeships and are now well prepared for the challenges of professional life. 

We are delighted that one of our former apprentices is going to remain with us and continue working at our company. With his expertise and dedication, he will certainly be an invaluable asset to us.


Our workforce currently numbers 65 with 6 apprentices among them. We still have apprenticeships available for 2024 and look forward to hearing from potential applicants. You can find more information here.

JOBkLAHR 2024 (career information fair)

JOBkLAHR_800x800.jpg

On Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd February 2024 the JOBkLAHR air was held for the first time in Lahr. Some 50 exhibitors from various sectors presented their apprenticeship trades and highlighted further training opportunities. POLAR-FORM was there too, of course! 

 

We held many great conversations with impending school leavers... and occasionally played a round of table football – something our apprentices built as part of their project work.

Moreover, our games of skill (also our apprentices’ project work) presented a challenge not only for the young visitors – the adult contenders also worked up a sweat!


We are already looking forward to receiving applications, whether for an internship or an apprenticeship.

You can find more information about an internship or even an apprenticeship at our company by clicking or by visiting us at the career information fair in Offenburg on 19th & 20th April, 2024.

Merry Christmas

merry-christmas.jpg

It’s Christmas once again and another year is drawing to a close.

Last year, we wished for peace, happiness, health and much more. Some of these wishes came true, while others didn’t.

But isn’t it better to enjoy the few good things than to despair over the less pleasant ones?

As Confucius once said:
ALL the darkness in the world can’t put out
the LIGHT of one candle.
-Confucius-


In this spirit, let us light as many candles as possible at Christmas time.

One candle for LOVE.
One candle for HOPE.
One for FAITH.
One for OPTIMISM.
One candle for PEACE.
One for BROTHERLY LOVE.
One candle for TRUTH.
One candle for SATISFACTION.
One candle for TRUST.
And ONE candle for TOGETHERNESS.


We would like to thank YOU, our loyal customers, business partners and reliable employees, for the many successful moments we have experienced together with YOU and trust that we’ll be able to enjoy many more such experiences in the coming year!


We wish you a blessed and peaceful Christmas and hope that the light of good will cause the less pleasant things to fade away.

Saving many lives together

Polar_Form Blutspenden_02.jpg

A joint blood donation campaign was organised together with two other companies from Lahr.

The German Red Cross blood donation campaign was a great success and a large number of employees participated. We are aware that anyone can be affected by an emergency – at any time! As a company, we therefore wish to encourage our employees to support others.

So we are planning further blood donation campaigns during which our committed employees can donate blood during working hours.

The job information fair in Offenburg. We are on.

Award for “Volunteer-Friendly Employer for Civil Protection”

News Bevölerungsschutz.jpg

On January 19, thirty three companies in Baden-Württemberg received the “Volunteer-Friendly Employer for Civil Protection” award. Thanks to the voluntary work undertaken by some employees, POLAR-FORM is one of the companies that honoured to accept this award.

In the area of civil protection in particular, volunteers play an important role when it comes to providing rapid assistance. We would therefore like to thank our employees for volunteering and will continue to support them in their voluntary work for civil protection.

Final examination

Weihnachten2022_en.jpg

Christmas is just around the corner and an eventful year is drawing to a close. We started the year 2022 with the hope of overcoming the many challenges of the Covid pandemic. While this has not fully materialised, the situation has improved. The year 2022 brought more big challenges, albeit different ones.


CHRISTMAS


Christmas is traditionally a time of reflection and joy. A time of peace and compassion, and especially a time of gratitude. 


We are grateful…

…for your loyalty!
…for your trust!
…for our good working relationship!


Together, with YOU, our customers, business partners and employees, we have made the year a success. 


Let's bring the year 2022 to a quiet close and let's continue to work hard and remain optimistic in 2023.


Use this time to pause and reflect, and to escape the stresses of daily life. Enjoy some peaceful and relaxing moments with your loved ones.


We wish you a Merry Christmas and a New Year full of health, happiness and joy.

Final examination

Abschlussprüfung_quadrat.jpg

We are incredibly proud of our former apprentices, Mirco and Michael. By passing their final examinations, they have successfully completed their vocational training as tool mechanics. The German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Industrie- und Handelskammer – IHK) awarded Michael and Mirco a prize for their excellent achievements during training and in their final exams in particular.

Both Mirco and Michael will remain in our employment as part of our team of skilled workers. Colleagues and management look forward to many years together and wish the boys all the best for the future.

Summer, sun, summer festival

Firmenlauf.jpg

Brilliant sunshine, cold drinks and a great atmosphere... everything you could wish for in a summer festival!

The pandemic caused recent summer festivals to either be cancelled completely or held on just a small scale. However, such gatherings are important events that allow POLAR-FORM staff to mix socially in a relaxed atmosphere.

We wanted to celebrate together once again this year. Our managing directors, Mr. Johannes Pollaert and Mr. Dieter Göppert, welcomed all POLAR-FORM employees and had also invited some retired former staff. The “Schwarzwald Burger” food truck provided culinary delights and the beer truck offered chilled drinks. Ice cream, cakes and delicious cocktails were also available. Some of the smaller visitors were even allowed to sit on the forklift. It was a really SUPER atmosphere!

Everyone left the summer festival with a smile on their face, looking forward to the upcoming company anniversary. Next year, POLAR-FORM Werkzeugbau GmbH will celebrate its 30th year of operations.

Corporate challenge race 2022 – the POLAR-FORM_Team was there

Firmenlauf.jpg

It was GREAT! Really good fun was had by all in a fantastic, relaxed atmosphere with radiant faces all round!

1,150 runners from nearly 90 companies participated in this year’s corporate challenge race. After tackling the 5 km course together they partied to LIVE music in the Seepark recreational lake area.

Team POLAR-FORM was there. It did us the world of good after a two-year pandemic-induced break and we were able to recharge a huge amount of collective energy. We are already looking forward to the next corporate challenge race.

POLAR-FORM at K 2022 in Düsseldorf!

K_2022_duesseldorf_223.png

It is with optimism that we look forward to that time in October and we have duly registered to be an exhibitor at K 2022, the leading trade fair for the plastics and rubber industry.


We look forward to welcoming you at our stand number C61 in Hall 01 from the 19th to the 26th October and being able to show you our latest innovations. 


Do you have a new project? Bring it with you.

 

We would be pleased to advise you in the search for solutions and await your questions with excitement.

Merry Christmas

christmas-greetings.jpg

For the second year in a row we have experienced a year that has been demanding for all of us in many respects, both in business and in our private lives. We had to learn to deal with restrictions. Familiar habits and human closeness were suddenly no longer a matter of course. This took many of us to our limits.


So, what better occasion than Christmas to say thank you for all the good things you did last year?

 

We would like to say thank you to all our customers, business partners and employees for your loyalty and the trust you have once again placed in us over the past year. Through our combined strength, we have mastered all of the challenges and made the best out of the situation.


From the bottom of our hearts, we wish you a wonderful holiday season and a joyous celebration with your loved ones.


This crisis has shown us the importance of health.
So, we wish you above all good health and great optimism for the coming year.

Corona-vacciation Polar-Form

Impftermin_002_en.jpg

Many vaccination centres and general practitioners are at full capacity regarding an appointment for the COVID19 vaccination. That is why we at POLAR-FORM Werkzeugbau GmbH would like to support our employees and, with the help of a company doctor, have offered persons who are interested the opportunity to make an appointment for the first vaccination on 21 June 2021.

"The health of our employees is very important to us!" says Dieter Göppert, Managing Director, and assures that the date for the second vaccination is already fixed.

Mr Dieter Göppert is one of the lectures on the DIF

INJECTION MOULD FOR HIGH-TECH MASKS

Bild_001.jpg

The high-quality and long-lasting masks made from flexible LSR and PP were developed at the request of Arburg from Lossburg in Germany and in cooperation with several partners. One of the partners, POLAR-FORM, built and supplied the special injection mould for the LSR component in a record time of around just five weeks.

 

Normally, it would take almost six months to progress from an initial design to a finished product. However, time was in short supply at the end of March and the situation called for urgent solutions. The masks, which fit over the nose and mouth and are made from LSR (liquid silicone rubber) and PP (polypropylene), have been in production since 11th May. The aim is to mass-produce around 3,500 of these multifunctional high-tech masks every day.

 

Masks to be donated to facilities

 

The finished marks will be donated to facilities that urgently need them. POLAR-FORM wants to support care workers and staff at the hospital in the Ortenau district to thank them for their dedication and hard work. These masks will provide reliable protection and are more comfortable to wear than disposable or fabric masks. LINK:
