Our Corporate Philosophy

  • We can’t do everything. – But what we can do, we do well. This has been the philosophy of our company since its foundation in 1990. Most of our staff have an academic or engineering background.
  • It’s the mixture that counts. – The expertise of our staff is one of our company’s assets. We rely on a balanced combination of practitioners with many years of experience and excellently trained young graduates.
  • A good feeling. – We consider dialogue and mutual understanding very important. They help us to solve problems and promote acceptance.
  • Demonstrating our skills. – While we certainly do not distain the advantages of modern communication technology, our Project Managers, Project Engineers and Support staff also demonstrate what they can do on site.
  • After Sales. - We don’t leave our customers out in the cold with our products. Successful project business requires a customer-friendly service policy. This is where our Support team comes into its own.
