DMG MORI recognizes that skills keep people and economies working. We are proud to partner with DMG MORI to enhance the WorldSkills vision of improving the world through the power of skills,” said Alexander Amiri, WorldSkills International’s Director of Sponsorship and Partnership.

“The WorldSkills Competitions are designed to motivate young people to perform at their very best. Since 2007 we have been supporting the WorldSkills Competitions. Our new role as a Global Industry Partner of WorldSkills International and the latest DMG MORI machine tools for the competitions underline our long-term support,” said Jan Möllenhoff, Managing Director of DMG MORI Academy.
