Our corporate culture

Our values


Along with our partners and our employs, we endeavour to create a constructive personal and professional community of values. We offer all of our customers production quality, solutions and services, which are specially tailored to their requirements. In doing so, we are competent, committed and approachable with a global presence.


Through our own international specialists and strategic partnerships, we strengthen our expertise in ideas offering solutions to customer needs in all areas.

Future proof

We have the people, the ideas, the products, the partners and the size – but above all our way of thinking and living quality equips us for the challenges of the future:

Committed to quality

Our products satisfy the most demanding requirements: they are subjected to intensive testing before being launched onto the market. In close coordination with the state-of-the-art testing department, our test engineers at the technology centre push components, assemblies or finished products to the limit every day. Hard practical tests regularly take place on various test runs.

Management style

Excellent products and services can only be produced with an excellent team on board. We work with people who recognise opportunities and seize them: day in, day out, our employees demonstrate their high commitment to quality through precision, dedication, creativity and professionalism. Qualified and satisfied employees are at the heart of our business success. We inspire our employees through systematic and specific personnel development measures and a culture of transparent and open dialogue. In doing so, we rate ourselves and our employees based on our success factors:
