Close competition in world markets demands a lot from us. But the fact is: The greatest demands are those we place on ourselves. And that’s not without reason, because: As an innovative brand with our own research and development, we are already working enthusiastically today on the product innovations of tomorrow.
We also work closely with our clients to improve performance. Together with our customers, research institutes, and other partners, we work on groundbreaking developments and individualized solutions. In all of this, we use the entire know-how of our more than 130-year company history.
We analyze market developments with a watchful eye. The aim is to identify trends and incorporate them in our assessment of future developments. Coupled with our well-known innovation management, this analysis gives us a strong information base to improve our products and services. All innovations are based on our metallurgical and product-specific expertise.
In the long years of our existence as a company, we have succeeded in developing a relatively unrivalled knowledge management system. Every day we benefit from this knowledge. The carriers of this information are essentially our employees and their experience. It is also a good tradition for one generation of employees to pass on their individual knowledge and experience to the next, throughout the company.
This interpersonal support ideally complements the comprehensive qualification and training opportunities that we offer on an ongoing basis. The importance to us of our qualified personnel is reflected in our excellent personnel management. Despite demographic change, a targeted strategy enables us to find motivated employees who are willing to perform and who share our desire for innovative performance.
