We are committed to providing our customers with quality products and services at all times. To this end, the company management coordinates and organizes quality targets that are derived from the quality policy in conjunction with the company’s overall strategic orientation and organizational context.

Corporate Values

Our employees’ health and safety are our greatest priority. We are convinced that a safe workplace is not only a moral obligation, but also an economic advantage. To ensure the well-being of our employees and provide our team with a safe and secure workplace, we have defined comprehensive safety measures in all areas.

Personal and Corporate Commitment

We act and think like entrepreneurs and are committed to the success of our customers, our company, our employees, our suppliers, and our partners.


We follow the highest professional standards across all company sectors to deliver outstanding products and services to our customers. We believe that professionalism can be traced back to innovative technologies, integrity, reliability and commitment. All areas of the company are driven by innovation. Our employees are trained on an ongoing basis to ensure that we maintain the highest professional standards on a permanent basis.


We are convinced that the best results can only be achieved in a cooperative, clearly structured, and organized unit. Therefore, teams are comprised of colleagues from different disciplines with complementary experiences to achieve outstanding results.

Pragmatism and Fast Moving

We focus on achieving innovative, yet pragmatic and actionable results for any challenge by emphasizing the essentials and reducing complexity in all areas. Our extensive experience and judgment are the basis for research and development, the evaluation and derivation of recommendations, and the implementation of customer-specific solutions.

Respect Among Colleagues

We work together to implement the company's vision and do not set arbitrary or unreasonable goals to be achieved within the available time and capabilities. We treat each other with respect and meet as equals.


To respectfully achieve a mutual understanding of the subject and consideration of different points of view, we expect and encourage clear, personal coordination with each other regularly. Coordination should always be prepared and efficient to move topics forward expeditiously. Communication also means expectation management, i.e., a clear and early exchange as well as planning regarding which results can be reasonably expected by when.

Risk-based Thinking and Action

We see risk-based thinking and action as an essential corporate responsibility. Risks are opportunities for improvement and we always work together to minimize identifiable risks. Therefore, minimizing risks is seen by all managers and employees as an important part of our daily activities. This is reflected in the fact that risks in our processes are proactively communicated and understood.
