We acknowledge our social responsibility and make our contribution to sustainable development. Our involvement in the economy, ecology, and social affairs is underpinned by our values and our culture.

Economics

Our goal: reducing energy consumption

Our goal: reducing energy consumption

We regard research and development as crucial. Countless patents are testament to our desire to innovate.

We have created many products and solutions over the last 90 years. All help the user to use energy efficiently, to save space, costs, and time, and to use new processes and materials. From an early stage we chose to pursue renewable energies and pioneering technologies and to implement them in new products and solutions.

Environment

Our goal: environmentally friendly production

Our goal: environmentally friendly production

A careful, conscientious approach to using resources informs all that we do.

We use rainwater wherever we can. We use geothermal energy and heat recovery to heat our buildings. We generate solar power for our manufacturing halls with photovoltaic systems. Our careful use of compressed air in machine building, lead-free manufacture and recycling of materials lessen our environmental impact.

Social

Responsibility for family and society

Responsibility for family and society

We acknowledge our social responsibility by the enabling sound, self-financed growth of our company and thereby creating safe jobs.

In projects such as the Aubikom project, we focus on furnishing disadvantaged young people and migrants with the necessary skills for education and training. We provide support for education and training for young people at an early stage. We enable our employees to pursue lifelong learning with our extensive development program and offer family-friendly working models.

We are also involved in the community beyond the factory gates. We support charitable initiatives and promote art, culture, and sport through sponsoring.
