These operators are sponsored by companies who use our equipments. In the last couple of years, we have seen that many people are directly enrolling themselves to the operator training courses and before finishing their course, we are able to find employment for them with our customers. Many such trained operators have also gone abroad to countries like Libya, Kenya, Muscat, Afghanistan, Oman and Maldives.
One of the key initiatives taken by Schwing Stetter as part of its corporate social responsibility is the building of schools in villages near Sriperumpudur, Tamil Nadu, such as Kattrampakkam and Keevalur. Teachers have been employed in both the schools. The school plays host to 260 students and teachers. Basic facilities such as tables and benches, computers, etc. have been provided.
