Quality, health & safety and environmental protection (QHSE) are, and will remain, important factors for us and for our customers

Corporate principles

In 1986 we established the "Principles of Occupational Safety" for the first time. This was seen as exemplary and advanced by many customers. In the following years these principles were developed further with our employees. They are revised every three years and updated if necessary. We view the principles of our company policy as a daily challenge, which we face with the aim of continuous improvement. They are binding for all of us.
