NIEHOFF as an employer


Technology leadership, international projects, secure jobs, continuous training and professional education, and active responsibility towards employees, society and the environment – there are plenty of good reasons why NIEHOFF as a machine manufacturing company is one of the TOP employers and providers of trainee positions in Middle Franconia.

Current job vacancies, opportunities for trainee positions, work experience placements or bachelor degree theses can be found at our job vacancies area below.


There are plenty of good reasons.

NIEHOFF is the world market leader in machines and lines for wire drawing and has been developing groundbreaking technologies for cable manufacturing, covering the entire length of the value-creation chain, ever since it was founded in 1951. Our machines and lines are used all over the world in high-tech industries such as the automotive, electronics, tele­communications, aviation and aerospace, and transport industries. More than 960 employees, of which around 90 are developers and design engineers, are employed at the company headquarters in Schwabach or at one of the ten subsidiaries in three continents.

Our expertise in all aspects of wire drawing and cable manufacturing coupled with a comprehensive knowledge covering the entire length of our customers’ value-creation chain have made NIEHOFF an innovative premium brand with a worldwide reputation. To ensure that this continuous exchange of knowledge is maintained in the future as well, we provide our employees with support in the form of a comprehensive program of training and professional education courses. A large number of vocational training places are offered each year in commercial and technical vocations, not just with our own internal requirements in mind but as part of our responsibility to the community at the same time. In our modern training center we prepare the next generation of skilled workers to be fit for the requirements of the future. Top awards at district and regional level are testimony to the above average level of training qualifications attained by our young employees.

NIEHOFF is at home throughout the whole world but still has its roots firmly in Schwabach and the surrounding region. As one of Middle Franconia’s TOP employers, we have a responsibility for secure jobs, an intact environment and towards society in general. A responsibility which we are more than eager to fulfill, as it means we can count on loyal and motivated employees in return.

Our responsibility


Many of NIEHOFF’s employees have been with us for decades. That we take our responsibility towards our employees seriously is apparent not just from our low fluctuation rates, but also from the high percentage of long-standing employees who have been with the company for anything up to fifty years!


It is their motivation, identification with the company, knowledge and social skills that we have to thank for the quality of our products, innovative strength and the satisfaction of our customers. This level of commitment is only possible in a work environment which is open and motivating.


As a company with a sense of responsibility, we therefore believe we have a duty to assist our employees with the development of their careers by providing training and professional education and helping support a family/career balance and good health for every single one of them. Company management at NIEHOFF is committed to fair and respectful personal relations between everyone at the company.
