As Germany’s brand leader for armoured vehicles, STOOF attaches great importance to thorough training and optimal work–life balance. We’ll turn you into an auto professional!

As soon as you are onboarded, you benefit from the continuous communications and group cohesion of our team. At STOOF in Borkheide, we attach great importance to mutual respect. We are always willing to listen to your ideas and proposals. Your apprenticeship will take you through all relevant departments where you can familiarise yourself with the details of vehicle construction. After the regular apprenticeship period of 3.5 years spent in production and at vocational school, you’ll join the experts in the field of armoured vehicles.


You will be working with helpful, friendly colleagues and state-of-the-art equipment on 23,000 square metres of floor space in the Potsdam-Mittelmark district. In our well equipped facilities, you will learn everything about the dismantling and final assembly of custom armoured cars. Your assignments also include

  • welding and body work,
  • brake and lighting system configuration, and
  • repair and maintenance of air conditioning and safety systems.

You will be repairing renowned vehicle brands and working with materials like glass and steel armour plate. In addition, you will be documenting all of the provided services and be responsible for the care and maintenance of custom armoured vehicles. This dual education and training for a recognised trade is shared between production in Potsdam-Mittelmark and vocational school.


As a promising coachbuilder and vehicle construction mechanic (M/F/X), your routine work involves responsibility and diligence. A marked interest in vehicles and automotive systems is one of the prerequisites for this vocational training. The same goes for above-average manual skill. The apprenticeship also requires at least a certificate of secondary education.

And if you can verify in addition your fluency in written and spoken German and are a versatile and highly motivated team player, then your application to STOOF has a very good chance. Interested?
