Once again GST was part of the career day at HTL Hollabrunn.

The participation at the career day of the HTL Hollabrunn has become a yearly tradition for GST, since many of our employees are former HTL graduates – a tradition we are trying to continue in the very same way for many more years to come: Introducing our company to future generations!

We would like to thank the school for the opportunity to present our company via presentation and give the students insights into all our specialist departments and job opportunities.

We had an exciting day and many interesting conversations, with promising future prospects.

We wholeheartedly want to say „thank you for that“!

Korneuburg’s 9th „Bildungsmeile“ brought interested people to GST yet again this year.

Participating companies opened their doors and showed interested pupils the training opportunities of the available apprenticeships within the respective company. The offer was well received at GST – Our visitors were asked what impressions they were able to gather during their visit and what was special about being able to visit a production company on site.

Many conclusive answers were given:
“You see behind the scenes and can get a picture of the field of activity.”
“Lots of times it’s the little things that you see in a company that contribute to your final career choice.”
“It’s the only way to decide for yourself if you feel comfortable in the working environment.”
“You get a first hand observation regarding the atmosphere within the staff and the ways they interact with each other.”

As a training company, we are glad that the annual initiative of the WKO Lower Austria was well received yet again by families and school classes this year and we would like to express our sincere thanks to all participants!

HTL students from OPAVA gain practical experience at GST

Students from the HTL for mechanical engineering from OPAVA – SŠPU Opava – úvodní stránka – are currently completing their Erasmus traineeship at GST.

Only the best students are allowed to apply this kind of internship. If the letter of motivation is convincing, they get the opportunity to complete their internship abroad. The students are accommodated in Vienna as part of the Erasmus program and commute to Sierndorf by train.

With two weeks behind them, the students were able to get acquainted with many areas of our company. GST offers practical experience in the production and mechanical design departments as part of the internship. They are coached and accompanied by our experienced designer DI Vera Sucha, who lives in Brno and travels to GST on a daily basis. As a graduate of the Technical University CVUT Praha – Czech Technical University Prague, she is a role model for the four young students when it comes to mechanical engineering.

Erasmuspraktikum bei GST

In an informal interview, the trainees were asked how they like working at GST:

“The activities in the mechanical design department are very interesting. The 3D program runs in German language, but thanks to intuition and experience, we are still able to work with it very efficiently.”

The two trainees who are currently working in the mechanical production department feel particularly comfortable because they can work together with colleagues of the same age who have also completed their training at GST. Because of everybody speaking English, there is no language barrier between them and if certain technical terms are unclear, translation tools make short work of problems of that nature. Many areas such as the “engraving area for machine plates”, the “spindle room” and the “assembly of assemblies” are presented and activities in these areas are taught.

Erasmuspraktikum bei GST

And what do the young trainees think about their stay in Austria?

 „We are fans of the ÖBB, it is always on time, well equipped and clean”, the way to and from work is rather hectic: „In Vienna, people are constantly on the run, whether on the way to the subway or anywhere else, there is hustle and bustle everywhere”. They enjoy their spare time, including weekend trips to i.e. the Technical Museum in Vienna, which they found to be quite interesting.

But not everything works perfectly: “The stove in the apartment always causes problems, but now it has been replaced” and “Unfortunately, the Austrian beer doesn’t taste as good as the Czech one”. 😉

All in all, the four young people find their stay in Austria very exciting and praise the internship very highly. Some of them could even imagine a life in Austria, although probably not in Vienne, but its more rural surroundings like Sierndorf.

We would like to thank the students for their interest, their cooperation and the overall great exchange!

As a result the machine produceses 3,101 processed parts per day at a cycle time of 22″ and an operation of 22.5 hours/day.

We would be happy to provide you with further information. Feel free to >>contact<< us with your requirements.

Students from the VS Sierndorf visited the production site of GST Grinder GmbH

GST regularly opens its doors to present the company to students and other interested parties. On March 7th, 2023 we were able to welcome our youngest visitor classes to date – the 4th grade of the Sierndorf elementary school, accompanied by their teachers Ms. Regina Stocklasser and Ms. Karoline Wolf.
The children showed great interest and there were many exciting questions to be answered

Passing on knowledge

It’s important to us to share the enthusiasm for our profession and activities. Passing on our company’s know-how to the younger generations is crucial for our future development. That’s why we also train apprentices in-house in the fields of “Metal Technology” and “Construction”.

Many young people do not know about certain occupational fields. The “traditional professions” are very popular amongst girls and boys. We would like to present the opportunities, which we – as a company – are able to offer. We wish to inspire interest at an early stage and – later on – share our knowledge with anyone who decides to apply to us.

Kinder für Technik begeistern

This year, as in the previous years, GST Grinder GmbH is following the motto “donating instead of making gifts” and is supporting the “We get help on its way” campaign with a Christmas donation. This campaign is in support of all people whose lives are in danger.

“Doctors Without Borders” is active independently and impartially in over 70 nations all around the world and brings medical care to needy people in crisis areas and war zones.

We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to our customers, business partners and employees for the good cooperation, that has always been characterized by trust, loyalty and commitment. Without their help, we would not be able to make this valuable contribution.

We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

GST Merry Christmas 2022

As part of the 30th anniversary, the employees and their families took a look back on the company’s history and celebrated together. The event was held in the company’s production hall. Speeches were held by not only GST’s managing directors Franz Hein and Günter Hacker, but also the mayor of Sierndorf, Mr. Ernst Kreuzinger.

On behalf of the staff, Mr. Leopold Fröhlich gave a humoristic review of the company’s evolution from his perspective as a longtime employee. Our sales representative in Germany – Mr. Rainer Balles, offered words of greeting and congratulations via telephone message. The Balles company is working for GST for 2 generations already and Germany still is the most important export market for GST.

The Lower Austrian Chamber of Commerce also congratulated for the jubilee and its Vice President Dr. Moser presented an award for 30 years of successful business activity as a company and employer.
After a leisurely lunch, the celebration turned into an open day starting at 1:00 p.m., at which our gates were opened for everyone interested in taking a closer look at our everyday work processes.

A particularly large number of young people took this opportunity to take a look behind the scenes. GST offers apprenticeship programs in the fields of “Metal technician” and “Construction” within our company. Accordingly, the company is an attractive employer for those looking for an apprenticeship.

But not only local people, but also business partners from other countries showed up to celebrate with GST. Long-standing suppliers over the years became friends of the company. In summary, we are very happy to say that the celebration was a big success and used by many sides for a relaxed exchange.

Fact sheet

In 1992, the GST company started overhauling machine tools under the name „GST – Gesellschaft für Schleiftechnik GmbH“. The first new machine was soon sold to Volkswagen AG Germany, and thereby secured our economic success.
The technical know-how was there from the very beginning, since the company was founed out of necessity, because the former employer of the GST’s founders quit the “Heid-AG” in Stockerau, thus giving up the areas of grinding technology and lathes.
Today the company operates internationally under the name GST Grinder GmbH. Around 100 people work at the Sierndorf production site. Customers are located primarily in Germany, but our high-quality machines are sold to places as far away as China and Mexico!

In the course of the “NÖ Bildungsmeile 2021” GST invited all students who are interested in apprenticeships.

Visitors were able to take a peek behind the curtain and get answers to various questions concerning our company and potential career possibilities at GST!

We would like to thank every one of our guests and hope to see them again in the near future!
