We foster an atmosphere where employees and management can work together in a respectful and constructive way as partners, and strive for a constructive relationship to the Works Council.

Social Responsibility
We have strong considerations for each individual’s circumstances, both professionally and personally, and seek to build a long term employee-employer relationship.

Environmental Protection
We seek to continuously improve the use of resources and support environmentally friendly production and logistic processes.
