Sustainability is in our DNA.

As a family business, it is natural for us to keep the next generation in mind. We therefore take our social responsibility for climate protection particularly seriously. This applies to both, our production and energy supply. For example, our photovoltaic system enables us to cover almost our entire electricity needs for the year.
