As a company steeped in tradition, a vision of the future and a clear self-image that is based on our values are particularly important to us. For generations, shared values have formed the basis for trusting co-operation and entrepreneurial success. For us, this primarily means that our group of companies not only champions its employees, but also the society in which we are involved.
The first company agreement from 1954 indicates that good working conditions have always been important to us - and they still are today. We have always been committed to social projects in the individual regions, which are both our home and place of work. Especially today, as a global player with around 15 locations and numerous representatives on almost every continent, we are well aware of the fact that our true competitive advantages lie with our dedicated and well-trained employees; after all, any company can buy the necessary technology.
Our jointly developed mission statement, which describes in detail our self-image and vision of the future, as well as the values to which we profess, should be used as a guideline and provide assistance for us all. It describes how we want to live and work together, and how appreciation and trust play a particularly crucial role. Because every person is unique. Praise and appreciation make us strong, efficient and self-confident.

A taste for performance
Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, flexible and responsible employees are our greatest asset and the source of our success. "We are as good as the sum of our employees". This reflects our corporate culture which we live up to in all our day-to-day dealings. To us, mutual appreciation, cooperation and loyalty are key virtues.
Management by objectives – the key to success
Our executives ensure that each member of staff knows and understands our mission statement and lives up to its aims. Each employee knows his or her tasks and objectives and pursues them under his or her own responsibility so as to make a real contribution to our company's overall success.
Tradition in the region
Being a traditionalist company, we identify with our region, its residents and local industrial history. Against this background, we are particularly concerned with securing jobs in Germany.
