Driving force

Competition is our driving force

Each of our competitors sharpens our senses, stimulates our creative juices and gives rise to innovative solutions. Fairness and mutual respect are important aspects for us.


utility models and patents have been registered since the company was founded, ensuring the company’s lead over its competitors for years. The utility model granted in 1923 for the “iron/concrete frame” was the proof first evidence of our enormous innovative strength.


Our suppliers are an important source of our success

When choosing our suppliers, we pay attention to the highest quality standards and reliability. Compatibility with our values is just as important as the quality delivered.

We rely on long-term, reliable and certified supplier relations based on partnerships to ensure supply reliability and spare parts availability over long time-frames. A well-functioning supply chain is a central component of our product quality.


Our environment is the source of our existence

In all our corporate activities, we act sustainably and are aware of our ecological, social and economic responsibility. We are convinced that a company can only work successfully in the long term if these three aspects are well balanced.


All stakeholders can rely on the fact that the company will continue to build on its solid foundations into the future. This creates a sense of security, not least when investing in our machines.
