Corporate principles

The foundation of success

The company's owners, management and workforce are united by shared values. This is reflected in our successful cooperation and social commitments.

1. The capability and cooperation of our staff harnessed to their goal focused motivation is a key asset of our company.

2. We recognise the correlation between skills and knowledge development, motivation and company success. To that end, we encourage and sponsor our staff in training and further education and to share in the overall company success.

3. We view our customers as partners who determine the success of the company:

  • We must satisfy our customers’ wishes and help to solve their problems for they are the guarantors of our future.
  • Our products and services must offer clear benefits to our customers in particular with regard to quality, technical capability, range and availability.

4. We must be quicker and better than the competition, and we must prove this to our customers on a daily basis.

5. Our inspiration and creativity result in our competitive advantage. We must, therefore, continually strive to generate ideas and initiatives that can translate into effective implementation.

6. Perfect mastery of our daily business secures our existence and positions us to meet the challenges of the future.

7. Our goal is to develop long term and meaningful relationships on a partnership basis with our suppliers. This requires a strategic outlook based on competitive focused quality, delivery service, price and cooperative problem solving.

8. We focus all of our energies on cost effective designing, developing and delivery of products and services in a professional and timely manner.

9. We are aware of our responsibility to the environment and the world in which we live. We want, therefore, to take part in shaping and improving it.

10. We power the system
– faster – better – worldwide.
