Our customers are our partners. The success and continued existence of our company depend on our customers and thus on their satisfaction with our products and their business relations with us.

We want to continuously adapt and improve quality management to new circumstances. The quality policy serves to encourage our managers to take responsibility for the success of our quality goals and to derive our corporate and process objectives.
We perceive continuous improvement as a task and a challenge, to question the basics, to eliminate or detect errors before they occur, and to develop future-oriented solutions in our business area. Our aim is to continuously increase the quality and competitiveness of our products.
Our ideas and knowledge create new products and secure our future. In doing so, we aim to solve customers’ problems and meet their requirements and expectations.

For us, problems and recognized errors are opportunities for innovation and improvement. Every employee has the duty and the right to contribute to the detection and elimination of defects and to produce perfect quality as well as to avoid or reduce environmental impacts.
