We are Moving Industries for Generations, and each phrase of this manifesto is meaningful and gets to the heart of everything we do, both internally and externally.
Moving means that we keep industries moving as market leader. In our region, we are trusted by 19,000 customers, whose quality and value-creating service is supported by more than 1,900 employees in 9 countries. Our 51 warehouses and sales offices are precisely coordinated to keep our inventory of 27,000 product types moving and managed throughout the supply chain. We strive for the highest certified quality in our work. We think in terms of resilient, complex, and sustainable supply chain solutions by bringing together, connecting, and continuously improving our systems and business processes. We are looking to the challenges of the future and, together with our customers, we are consciously preparing for the future.
The word Industries means that our materials and services are used in all sectors. As a large, mill-independent materials distributor and service provider, we play a key role in the economy and take responsibility for industry. With our products and services, we ensure that every day cars roll off the assembly line, buildings are built, plants and machines run, and electricity is used. We are already focused on making our digitalization solutions future-proof for our partners. Examples include the just-in-time delivery of materials to the production sites of many industries and the inventory management we have developed for this purpose, or our outsourced, Materials-as-a-Service-oriented contracted services, which are now a part of everyday life in industry. We build long-term relationships with our customers.
The term For Generations includes both our past and our future, as we build for Generations. Our knowledge base, our experience builds on previous generations and our compliance with the guidelines give us the stability we need in a changing world. It is on this foundation that we can confidently base our innovative solutions to meet our customers' challenges and support their development in a maximum and future-proof way. Our sustainability strategy is building our future.
