Past performance

What is important to us

Our corporate values

Social Commitment

Actively helping to shape society and giving something back to it – that’s what we’ve made our mission! As a company, we support our employees in their voluntary work. We also make regular donations to local institutions and projects. Donating is not an end in itself for us. Instead, our goal is to contribute to the long-term improvement of the common good. That is why the three aspects of regionality, use for a specific purpose and sustainability are at the heart of our social commitment. For us, however, social responsibility does not end beyond the city borders. It also means that we are committed to ensuring decent working and living conditions for those who produce the products we consume on a daily basis.

Sustainability and environmental protection

Thanks to our voluntary efforts in the areas of climate and environmental protection, resource conservation, energy efficiency and social sustainability, we have been a member of the Thuringia Sustainability Alliance (NAThüringen) since 2014. The alliance includes Thuringian companies that have made a name for themselves through their achievements in these fields. Our achievements include, among others, the energetic renovation and operation of our company buildings, the purchase of an e-car as a company car, the purchase of materials from manufacturers in the region to avoid emissions and the manufacture of long-life products. In addition, we regularly donate to the Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union and other environmental protection projects, such as the organization I plant a tree, which planted 2000 trees in the Harz Mountains in our name.

Promotion of children and young people

Strengthening children’s natural spirit of research and discovery is very close to our hearts. We want to make them curious about technical professions and actively contribute to the promotion of mathematical, scientific, technical and computer science education (MINT) of girls and boys. We are therefore a member of witelo e.V. Jena, a sponsor of the MINT Festival Jena and are regularly represented with our own booth at the Long Night of the Sciences in our hometown Jena.
