OPUS - News and
updates at first hand

Career evening at Neckargemünd secondary school

For many pupils, the question arises as to what to do after secondary school? That's why OPUS took part in the career evening at the secondary school in Neckargemünd on March 7, 2024.

After a brief welcome, the Year 9 pupils had the opportunity to find out about the various apprenticeships at OPUS. With a great deal of curiosity, they listened to the presentation by workshop foreman Peter Klötzl and design engineer Georg Beisel. They were supported by Joshua Glas, who recently finished his apprenticeship as a precision mechanic at OPUS and was able to give a first-hand account of the company's own “Zukunftswerkstatt”.

OPUS is currently training apprentices to become precision mechanics, office management assistants and technical product designers. OPUS also offers a dual study program in mechanical engineering. Our aim is to offer talented young people highly qualified training.

OPUS realigns itself.
Restructuring of the shareholder structure and the management.

Markus Weber has taken over the responsibility for the sole management of OPUS with effect from 01.04.2022. At the same time OPUS Formenbau GmbH & Co. KG was renamed OPUS GmbH and integrated into the ASW Group with headquarters in Wasserburg on Lake Constance.

By combining know-how from the areas of article design, tool and mold construction, plant engineering, as well as automation technology, we are henceforth able to meet any requirement, no matter how complex.

We are a member of the VDA

Due to our emerging brand OPUS Engineering and the resulting backwards integration in the process chain we are entitled to be a member of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA). This is because our concept enables us to create elementary synergies in the entire product development process of car body sealing systems by starting with article development.

The signs are set for growth!

Our young business unit OPUS Engineering is fully engaged in the concept development and article design of sealing solutions in the automotive industry at our Hamburg location. The special feature here is the close connection to mold construction, whereby a high focus on production-technical concerns represents the cornerstone of high-quality products. This enables us to offer our customers tailor-made solutions in the business sector of body sealing systems.

OPUS focuses on the future

In 2020 the Coronavirus pandemic has caused profound cuts in the economic activity of many companies. But OPUS focuses 100% on the future.

It has prompted us to continue taking on new staff in order to meet the high standards of our customers and to dedicate this time during the pandemic in order to emerge stronger than before from this crisis.

In 2020 we’ve recruited 9 new employees and we are on the verge of actively shaping our future.

Whether apprentices, dual students, commercial employees, engineers, sealing experts or managing directors - they all have the same goal: OPUS is & will be constantly improving.
