Our corporate principles

Customer satisfaction

The customer expects the highest quality from us by the agreed delivery date. Our position in the market directly depends on the fulfillment of the requirements and the partnership cooperation with the customer.

Product Development & Quality Planning

Technological innovation is the core of our company. From development to the finished assembly, it is a matter of planning and manufacturing the quality of our products.

Product quality

Our quality target is always "zero defects" or "100% correct". Quality is a prerequisite for economic success. Quality also means meeting delivery deadlines.

Error prevention

Error prevention comes before error detection. If errors nevertheless occur, the team analyzes the causes and effectively eliminates the problem. We strive for an open error culture: "Learning from mistakes."

Employee development

Based on employee surveys/interviews, suggestions and proposals are taken into account to ensure a healthy working atmosphere. The aim of our performance appraisal is to promote quality awareness and commitment.

Occupational safety

The health of our employees is our top priority. Measures to maintain health and prevent occupational accidents are an integral part of our organization.
