Our Values –
From Tradition to Innovation
We as a modern and traditional family business strive to combine the best values from both worlds. This means for us to live stability and continuity as well as innovation and progress.
Stability and continuity are essential factors for customer relationships and employee development. Innovation and modernization are crucial factors when it comes to development and production.
Our customers are our future. We pursue to maintain our customer relationships in the long term and to satisfy our customers 100%. This is ensured by our well-trained employees and high-quality products.
We are open for new areas of activity and develop those strategically.
We intend to bind our employees in the long-run and provide the possibility for them to be able to develop as best as possible. Therefore, we always strive to implement and use the latest processes, working materials or production processes.
As a family business, we also think of the next generation, i.e. we try to implement reasonable and in particular sustainable solutions in any area. In the energy sector, for example, we not only try to decrease our specific energy consumption but in addition we built our own wind turbine with which we cover in, financial terms, approximately 1/3 of HegerFerrit's energy demand.
