We focus our objectives on steadily increasing profitability while taking into account economic and ecological factors to maintain and protect our business location as well as jobs. In our business activities we always strive to make a profit, in order to be able to finance investments for the future from our equity capital.
Partner-like relationship with our customersOur worldwide activities are aligned with the market. We want a partner-like relationship with all customers, offering them optimal and innovative technologies at economic prices as well as flexible service.
Employee involvementThe high standard of our products requires qualified and motivated executives and employees who feel personally responsible for the high company standards and are willing to safeguard and continuously improve them. Teamwork takes priority here.
Especially older employees are valued and respected. Their enormous wealth of experience and expertise are an important part of the company.
Management commits itself to comprehensive, forward-looking goal orientation while at the same taking the concerns of all employees into account. We create the prerequisites for this with our open information policy and the relevant key data we make available and rely on the individual commitment of all employees in the company.
Continuous improvementThe process of holistic, continuous improvement is at the center of all our efforts. The initiated company reform is continuing this improvement process and serving as the orientation for the entire workforce of our company.
Just in TimeOur just-in-time production system with One-Piece-Flow manufacturing creates the basis for economic production with demand-oriented stockkeeping and high flexibility for our customers.
The individual processes are fine tuned to each other with regard to their work content. Everyone is obliged to act in a way that ensures that the internal Customer Cycle is achieved and maintained. Fault-free delivery to the following work station is prerequisite. Only in this way can waste be avoided and cycle times reduced. Every employee in our enterprise must incorporate the Zero-Fault Principle into his consciousness. Our guiding principle is: We avoid faults, we do not pass on any faults and we do not accept any faults.
The Pull Principle is one of the mandatory guiding principles of our company. On the basis of trustful cooperation, every employee fetches the materials, information and support he needs to carry out his work assignment. This is the only way unnecessary waiting times, overproduction and misinformation can be avoided.
Suppliers as partnersBy choosing qualified suppliers and service providers, the management system ensures that the principles of the company policy and the quality of the items we purchase are realized to the fullest extent. The supplier is regarded as a partner.
Legal obligationsTo keep the risks emanating from our medical products within acceptable limits, we take into account all applicable national and international regulations and norms in our risk management process. The current state of the art in medical technology and the known empirical values are also taken into consideration. In addition to that, we make sure all company-relevant legal obligations are met. Work safety as well as health and environmental protection are among the most important ones.
QualityTo do justice to our own quality requirements and those of our customers, we fulfill all the requirements vital to maintaining the effectiveness of our quality management.
EnvironmentWe've committed ourselves to implementing an environmental policy that does justice to the future of our company. Continuous improvement of our environmentally oriented behavior as well as avoidance of environmental impacts have absolute priority. Subjects like energy, water, waste and the use of resources are integrated in our environmental policy.
We strictly observe all applicable legal obligations and requirements. Management, in cooperation with the respective departments, regularly defines and reviews the environmentally relevant goals and checks to make sure they are complied with.
We regard environmental protection as an all-encompassing obligation, which is why we integrate customers, suppliers and employees into the process and inform them about our company policy.
