Responsibility

As a family business, we are very aware of our responsibility for human beings and nature alike. We follow our vision of creating a better world for our children and grandchildren. Being aware of this vision, we use our position to provide positive contributions towards that goal and to set a good example to other companies regarding this aim. We maintain long-term relationships with our suppliers. These relationships are based on trust and respect for each other. Together with our suppliers we analyse the conditions at the respective production sites and improve the situation, if needed.
