We operate according to our self-developed PQD company philosophy. This PQD company philosophy takes as starting point the flexibility that the customer needs to be distinctive in its market, where P (price) and D (Delivery) are variables and (Q) quality and 100% reliability forms the basis. Essential to our approach is that we ensure our sales (price), operations (delivery times) and production (quality) departments always cooperate fully with each other and we afford employees the freedom to develop initiatives and to excel across inter-departmental boundaries. Our lean production process ensures that we constantly focus on quality as basis for our business operations.
