Since 1934, the KÖTTER Group has operated on the market as an independent family business and will remain so into the future. Today, the corporate group is managed by Friedrich P. Kötter and his sister Martina Kötter, the third generation.
The strategy of the family business is aligned for the long term. Our approach and investments are consequently not aligned with short-term market success; rather, we are interested in long-term partnerships with our customers.
We are firmly convinced that only long-term partnerships bring sustainable success.
In order to achieve our goals and ensure the desired success of our group of companies, it is of great importance to the KÖTTER group of companies that all our managers as well as every single employee act responsibly in their dealings with business partners, but also with each other within the company.
On the one hand, our corporate philosophy defines the basis for a uniform way of dealing with each other.
On the other hand, it is also intended to communicate our values to the outside world - to potential employees, customers, suppliers and the general public. Because we are proud of our values. They have been the basis of our success for decades.
We deal openly and honestly with the public and government institutions. Conduct that complies with the law and is morally and ethically correct is a matter of course for us.
Based on this, we have written down our corporate philosophy on the opposite page.
We act according to these principles - we live these guidelines.
Always in the lead
As a future-oriented company, we are always looking ahead. We are familiar with the innova-tions of the sectors, use the opportunities the markets present and are open for everything suit-ing our core competences. Thus, we secure our clear lead that ensures further progress for our customers.
The joy good quality provides lasts much longer than a brief reminiscence of a cheap purchase. Therefore, we deliver best quality: from consultation via concept development to the perfect im-plementation. You can count on it.
Our employees use their brains: They come up with new ideas and suggest ways to optimise routines which we examine and implement. Thus, our customers benefit from a continuously in-creasing range of services, efficient processes and innovations.
Open communication distinguishes our conduct with employees, business partners and the public. The advantage: We establish partnerships based on trust.
The cooperation with our employees is based on fairness, trust and reliability. We live team-work, mutual consideration and appreciation.
Securing training and jobs, fairness in competition, environmentally responsible behaviour: We accept social responsibility and are actively involved in the social, cultural area as well as in sports.
Our standard is based on the wishes of our customers: As an independent, family-owned enter-prise we hold firm to this tradition. Therefore, we always offer customised solutions to our cus-tomers. Today and in the future.
The companies of the KÖTTER Group and their employees always act with the understanding and goal of acting in accordance with legal regulations and in compliance with ethical and moral principles in all business activities. We take possible violations by superiors, colleagues, suppliers, etc. of legal or collective bargaining provisions, regulations on equal treatment and non-discrimination, or other requirements of our Code of Conduct very seriously.
The code of conduct KÖTTER VALUES forms a joint guideline to realise our corporate values and goals. The code is aimed at all employees and serves as an implementation compo-nent of our compliance guidelines applicable group-wide. Strict observance of its rules, all other laws, directives and internal instructions are expected of every person. You can find more information in our publication KÖTTER VALUES.
