Three words that describe who we are, what we do, and how we go about doing it.
… is part of our identity. It characterizes the way we think. In the plant, in the office, at every site throughout the world. It means developing solutions for our customers – big and small. Today and tomorrow. As an international group of companies we supply reliable products, services and solutions – on schedule, in premium quality, and with a convincing price-performance ratio. In the spheres of mechanics, plant construction, and materials. We know our customers and their markets. We invest in relevant technological innovations, and in doing so make the world a little bit better. We are a reliable partner – that is our pledge.
We have written over 200 years of industrial history. That is the source from which we draw our strength and competence. But a great past is not sufficient for coping with the challenges of the future. Which is why we are thinking today how we want to be tomorrow. And we know today what the world of tomorrow and our customers need. We develop sustainable solutions that are also capable of meeting future challenges. We improve what already functions. And we revolutionize industries if they make people's lives easier and create a competitive advantage for our customers.
We share our knowledge, combine it and use it to create something new – across companies, industries, and countries. Our business activities benefit from the fact that we in our Group network think and work on a cross-company, cross-functional basis. "together" is a pledge we give our customers, our partner companies, and ourselves. We trust and are trustworthy. We are a team. We work together. We learn from each other and advance ourselves together. After all, the really big objectives can only be achieved together.
We belong together, at every workplace, in every plant, in every country. We can all be counted on.
We are thyssenkrupp, around 101,000 people with thousands of different lifestyles and cultures. But one thing unites us all: We are a team. We work together, learn from each other, and grow together. We are fair. We respect each other and communicate openly. We do what we say and say what we do. This value structure unites us and makes us successful.
