Responsible utilisation of energy – efficiently and resource-friendly

Our company consumes a lot of energy. Therefore, our responsibility towards the environment is all the greater. In addition to the principle of always using energy efficiently and to not waste any resources, we utilise an energy management system in accordance with ISO 50001 that allows for company-wide transparency and precise control. It’s a good feeling to deal with our resources as carefully as possible.

Top priority: Safety

As the company with Europe’s largest electroplating plant, our operations are subject to the regulations of the German Federal Immission Protection Act (BImSchG – Bundes-Immissionsschutzgesetz) and the German Hazardous Incident Ordinance (12th BImSchV). We consider it our obligation to prevent any type of hazardous situation and not just from a purely legal perspective. In the instance that something does happen anyway, we already have a clear plan.
