We take our responsibility for people and the environment seriously and act according to this. This is why we prefer environmentally friendly materials and try to use mainly water-based lacquers in all areas. In our production we use thermal and regenerative post-combustion systems, thus protecting the environment and ensuring an optimised energy balance. All materials used by us are regularly checked for compliance to new legal regulations.

With our suppliers, we prefer those who are ecologically forward-looking and socially responsible. We minimise packaging waste by consistently recommending reusable packaging to our business partners for the transport and further processing of our products.
