Values and Standards

Progress in the automotive industry is our ultimate goal. We are making an active contribution with our products to more environmental protection, more safety and more comfort in road traffic. Despite current dynamic technological and commercial developments, customers, employees and business partners can trust that some things won’t change. They can count on the long-standing and consistent practices and policies of a family business and a company culture of values that has grown and developed in 150 years.

Satisfied customers are the foundation of our business. We focus our thinking and actions on products and services to help our customers and business partners to succeed.

Our employees enjoy great freedom. We constantly invest in training programmes. We promote talents, independent thinking and initiative. Sufficient resources are always available if people are willing to promote fresh ideas.

We value fair co-operation and strive to build stable relationships on all levels, both externally and internally. Loyalty, respect, tolerance and mutual trust are at the core of all partnerships for joint success.

In our philosophy, our corporate responsibility does not end at the factory gates but instead encompasses the entire production and supply chain. It is our goal to achieve a sustainable ecological balance in all our activities and products.
