Reliability, economy and high efficiency are the values of our products and to be superior in such values compared with our competitors is our main task, since this guarantees the lead for our customers.
Traditionally Europe is our major market. Our commitment, however, is on a world-wide basis and is strongly export-oriented. It is our target to take a leading position also in the 'new markets'.
Knowledge, experience and commitment are the values brought into the company by our employees in order to produce those products which in future are the basis for making profits.

Efficient use of resources and respect for the environment are paid attention to during our business activities. This starts with the responsible behaviour of each individual employee and continues in the product range.We are committed to environmental responsibility and provide our customers with technical process solutions in diverse application areas for economic and environmentally-compatible production. Examples of this are heat recovery from waste water or process air as well as metal recovery. The reduced consumption of operating materials reduces harm to people and nature, lowers operating costs and thus increases profits.
