We stand by our responsibility
Sustainability in all areas
We are committed to the safety of nature, people, the environment and production processes. This is why environmental protection and environmental management have been an integral part of our corporate policy since the 1970s and go way beyond fulfilling official requirements.
Prerequisite for sustainability:
Responsible use of resources
This connection is the basis of our daily actions. That's why our entire production process is based on an environmentally friendly cycle of recyclable materials. One example of this is the upcycling of metal scrap to keep the production process as closed as possible. With this and additional measures such as continuous monitoring of emissions, environmental audits and regular training of our team, we contribute our share to a future worth living. We act in a demonstrably environmentally conscious manner. The double benefit for you: robust and durable components from sustainable production.
Sustainability creates added value
In addition to the ecological aspect, sustainable, resource-conserving business practices also directly benefit our customers in financial terms. Although our industry is very energy-intensive, we have managed to reduce our energy consumption by as much as 20% compared to the standard. We are setting clear benchmarks with this. As our customer, you benefit from the additional cost advantage we generate. As a result, it's a win-win situation for both the environment and finances.

Digital technologies as a sustainability boost
For us, sustainability also means fully exploiting the potential of digitalization. For this reason, we have launched the Digital Excellence initiative, in which we bring together both areas.More on Digital Excellence
