We could name many reasons why we are so good at what we do. One of them is the vast experience gained in more than 140 years that we have existed as a company. This is what has led us to adhere to the values we hold dear, combining ergonomics, ecology and innovative production methods.
Although trends are of no interest to us, we have been the first in many respects ñ simply because we believed in them. In 1925, for example, we launched the first spring-mounted swivel chair in the whole of Europe. This was not only a milestone for us but also for the whole of industry, whose employees no longer worked only in production but also spent many hours in the office.
What’s more, we did not suddenly discover sustainability as a marketing instrument that would help us to sell our products; we have been making careful use of resources for over 50 years and were the first European company in our industry to introduce an environment management and environment-auditing system.
In addition to the environment prize for companies in Baden-Wurttemberg, which we were given in 2012, we have been the recipient of 30 awards in the last ten years alone.
