reguse -  Our trainee company


Many of the electrical devices discarded by igus due to their age are still functional. But can't these products be used elsewhere and saved from electronic waste? The IT trainees also asked themselves this question at the end of 2019. The idea, coupled with the motto "reduce, reuse, recycle" and combined with the affiliation to igus results in reguse..

Consisting of the IT trainees who recycle the technology, the industrial business trainees who deal with the legal issues, and two media designers in training who take care of marketing and presentation, each has fixed tasks. 

reguse. offers all igus® employees the opportunity to purchase refurbished technical equipment at a favorable price. The proceeds from the sales do not stay with igus, but are donated to sustainable

Celebrating together - preferably real but also digital

As a Rhineland company, we like to celebrate - preferably joint successes: For this purpose, we use our annual summer party, for example, where all colleagues and their families can enjoy the beautiful weather with live events and catering. At the end of the year, our igus Ball invites to dance and get together in fine evening dress. With the Corona pandemic, we have become more creative in coming together digitally should the situation not allow it.
