Our Guiding Principles


We offer a work environment that creates enjoyment of performance and motivates the individual to develop according to their qualifications and abilities. Flat hierarchies and a high level of social and economic responsibility of all employees are important to us.


We do our best to contribute to the success of our customers, thereby securing our own future and creating development potential. Consequent customer orientation is the basis for business success. To us, this means anticipating our customers' expectations and exceeding them.


We constantly optimize our processes and their interactions: Who stops improving, has stopped being good. For this reason, our goal is to ensure superior quality, high delivery precision and innovative solutions in all areas.


We can only remain competitive, ensure sustainable growth and provide secure employment if we operate efficiently and profitably. Gained revenue is therefore invested to strengthen our equity capital in order to guarantee the financial capacity of the company.

Cooperation Partners

We continually expand our network of strategical alliances, in order to further increase our problem-solving and implementation competencies. Partnership-based, respectful relationships with our suppliers and cooperation partners are the key to mutual benefit.


We attach importance to resource-saving technologies and manufacturing processes, permanently taking into consideration all sensible and feasible environmental aspects. Innovative lightweight construction solutions play a decisive role in our contribution to environmental sustainability.

Our Values


We assume responsibility by acting reliably. Commitment, self-initiative and a constant willingness to learn are the central elements to safeguard this aim.


We show appreciation by mutual respect, and find recognition in reliability, tolerance and genuine feedback.


We ensure reliability through honesty. An open communication style and a high degree of transparency create an attractive work environment.


We are aware that successful and fair cooperation can only be guaranteed if we support one another.


We treat all people equally, regardless of gender, orientation, origin and culture. For simplification, terms used in the generic masculine refer to all genders.

Our activities in the area of sustainability implement the aspects of our mission statement in concrete terms.
We are convinced that companies that meet their social responsibilities can make a major contribution to the future. We therefore review our sustainability measures and develop them further on an ongoing basis.

With the help of CheckN, a simple sustainability compass based on SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals, global sustainability goals set by the UN General Assembly in 2015), in June 2019 we assessed the state of operational sustainability against the 17 goals.
The 17 SDGs are internationally recognised and defined in the German Sustainability Strategy as the basis for assessing sustainability in Germany.
The 17 targets are applicable globally, nationally, regionally and also at company level. Measures are successively derived and implemented.
