That we determine our success

Our drive
  • We consider ourselves to be an organisation that works to serve people and whose overriding factor shaping its success is people.
  • We see our main task as being to help our customers, our employees, our financial backers and their business partners to achieve success. This is why we seek to offer faultless products at a fair price and continuously improve our products, processes and services by further developing them in an innovative way.
  • We never want to just settle for what we have achieved and we give our very best every single day.
Our approach
  • We want to appear confident, be proud of our work and be one step ahead in everything we do.
  • We expect the employees and partners of our organisation to display a high level of dedication, personal responsibility, reliability, a self-critical demeanour, to strive for constant improvement and to act in accordance with our corporate culture.
  • We consider the individual person to be the most important factor dictating success in our organisation. This is why we expect all employees and every partner of our organisation to show a high degree of respect for other people that is reflected in a fair, open, tolerant and honest approach in working with one another.
  • We do not expect or demand others to do things that we are not prepared to do ourselves.
  • We respect the freedom and the needs of the individual. This is why we want to create a positive working environment in which all employees can enjoy their work, freely flourish and the creativity of our employees and partners is encouraged.
  • We want to conserve resources by developing environmentally friendly, reusable products and processes, using environmentally sustainable substances, preventing wastefulness and waste, disposing of waste materials in an environmentally compatible way, supporting measures that promote health, acquiring energy efficient machinery, goods and services and ensuring the safety of our employees whilst adhering to all applicable laws and binding obligations. We regard every risk on the way to achieving our goals as an opportunity for improvement. For this reason we want to identify the risks and opportunities in our business and process workflow and already take them into account at the planning stage to secure our path to success and safeguard the effectiveness of our management system.
  • We monitor our objectives in a constant KPI monitoring system.
Our success
  • Even in difficult times, we want to support each other and thus guarantee the continued survival of the company and secure the financial futures of our employees.
  • We want to ensure that our work makes a positive contribution to the development of society by creating and maintaining secure jobs, providing high-quality training and further development for our employees and supporting charitable organisations.
  • We are fully aware that we will only be able to get closer to achieving our desires, goals and visions if we work in a profitable way over the long term. This is the only way to secure the resources and opportunities to preserve our identity and independence and shape our future in a positive way.
