As a modern company it is natural for us to take our social and ecological responsibility seriously and to turn it into practical action.
In the first place we define ourselves as a company that – on the basis of economic success – offers reliable work places to our employees. We believe in balanced economic growth. As a company that takes on trainees, social responsibility is a serious issue for us.
