Core values

Our core values are the cornerstones in developing our company culture. They are regularly discussed and form the basis of our code of conduct. These core values are human qualities that can be summarized in five words: respect, openness, innovation, honesty, and trust.

  • Respect

    Encounters with all individuals and organizations should be conducted with their unique ideas, beliefs, cultures, personal situations, resources, values, priorities, and objectives in mind. The act of listening is therefore critical. Respect requires empathy, consideration, and a willingness to help. We must be dedicated and patient in all situations to live up to our core value of respect.

  • Openness

    We believe openness can be expressed with four words: listening, communication, tolerance, and curiosity. By listening, we mean active listening – paying full attention and asking questions whenever something is unclear. Communication is not only about our rights but also our responsibility to share points of view and discuss different standpoints in a positive way. The ability to listen and communicate without judgment is our definition of tolerance.

    Staying curious means being open to new possibilities as well as challenging existing methods, which leads to innovation. Openness means being able to listen to criticism and being continuously prepared to evaluate all the options.

  • Innovation

    An innovative mind is one that can think critically to solve problems and think outside the box. As we deal with the latest technology, innovative thinking is central to everything we do. We must constantly look for new possibilities that arise from technological advances and challenge ourselves to deliver new solutions to our customers. Innovation can come in the form of streamlining and optimizing existing processes or being prepared to radically rethink things from scratch when the time is right. We innovate to stay ahead and create a better life for ourselves and our customers.
  • Honesty

    We believe that truly knowing “who you are” is the basis of honesty. To fully express oneself, and to give and take credit as well as criticism, we need individual courage. Honesty is also about being straightforward and realistic about the strengths and limitations of individuals and organizations. Clear and direct communication is essential in building an environment where honesty can thrive.
  • Trust

    Expertise and long-term engagement are key factors for gaining the trust of colleagues, customers, and suppliers. Everyone should demonstrate an active commitment to satisfying both personal and professional needs. This is achieved through training as well as a genuine interest in the specific needs of others. Acting reliably and providing correct, consistent information strengthens relationships and co-operation between all parties.

Honesty, openness and respect earns trust. Trust equals reputation.
Acting with these five core values in mind we aim to bring an all-important “human touch” to the technological world we work in.

  • WHY – A Positive Impact

    We want to make a positive impact with our daily work.

    We are dedicated to developing the full potential of our customers’ processes, our suppliers’ market positions, our corporate spirit and our staff.

    Positive Impact

    When asked why we do what we do, our response is:

    1. We want to improve the longevity of our customers’ process equipment, therefore saving on life cycle costs, increasing profit and reducing the strain on our planet.
    2. We want to improve production efficiency to minimize emissions and reduce any harmful impact on the environment.
    3. We want to protect your operators from exposure to dangerous substances with our containment solutions.
    4. We want to protect your products with our sterilization and containment solutions to minimize production losses.
    5. We want to promote environmentally friendly equipment, produced under fair conditions, to help contribute to our customers’ responsible business goals.

    And we want more! We want to become a role model by creating a true 21st century business with responsibility built into our company DNA, inspiring others to follow.

    WHY? To have a positive impact, that’s WHY!

  • HOW – One Region One Team

    We believe that our success is dependent on our ability to build trust with our customers and partners. Gaining genuine trust isn’t easy but we believe it is ultimately an emotional skill that can be nurtured. We run training programs to help develop our emotional capabilities and courage.

    We want to encourage ourselves, our customers and partners to all bring ideas and values to the table. We do this by nourishing a supporting and safe corporate environment where we can all grow and improve together.

    We believe in personal responsibility but build our culture on collective collaboration and teamwork. Success is achieved through teamwork – we win and lose together. Our people might work across different areas, but we are all part of the same team, working together towards a common goal.
