Integrity and trust matter to us and are key to our success. This is also reflected in practical terms in our long-standing partnerships and customer relationships. As a locally rooted family business, we actively promote an open culture, which especially has an impact on compliance: Each of our employees is encouraged to contribute to this within their area.

An open culture, where any colleague and any external partner feels able to address even unpleasant issues, is crucial for this. That is why we have established a system that makes reporting non-compliances very straightforward. Because compliance requires more than certification and high standards, it must be practiced every day. We know this.

As an international family company, VITRONIC has built up an outstanding reputation with the public, its business partners and employees. It means so much to us to have achieved this.
Matthias Pörner CFO
