It is our goal

to develop resource- and energy-efficient products both in their manufacture and subsequent operation. We are uncompromisingly oriented toward the needs and requirements of our customers, with a high degree of innovation and a reliable standard of quality.

Kermi employee

The areas of responsibility for quality, environment, occupational safety, and energy

are clearly assigned within our management system. All employees are collectively accountable for achieving the performance and functionality of our products and the efficiency of every process operation. As a consequence, we challenge them with assignments carrying a high degree of responsibility and systematically advance their understanding of our processes, products, and services with regard to their safety, energy, quality, and environmental aspects. We attain corresponding behaviour from our employees primarily through information, instruction, and training suitable for all employee levels. Through goal-oriented personal and technical development, we promote team spirit, commitment, and loyalty, as well as excellent market, process, and product know-how throughout the hierarchy.

Our products, production processes, and operations

are designed in such a way that the health and safety of employees, customers, and users, as well as the environment, are not compromised. Together with government agencies and emergency organisations we develop concepts, emergency action plans, and other measures for the protection of employees, the public, and the environment. We consider legal requirements to be minimum requirements.

We show our commitment by establishing appropriate goals

and measures to continually improve our performance and as a result the effectiveness of our management system. When we make investments, we prize careful use of resources. We regularly evaluate the achievement of objectives and the remaining risks on the basis of key performance indicators in the areas of quality, health, safety, energy, and environmental protection. Mistakes present us with opportunities to innovate and improve. All of the financial and structural prerequisites necessary for implementation have been established. We conduct internal and external audits for measuring and monitoring purposes at regular, fixed intervals.


In keeping with integrated resource management

we are constantly recording and analysing our material flows. On this basis, we are constantly taking steps to increase material efficiency and our recycling rate, as well as reduce the amount of waste. Waste disposal is managed with a waste management concept.

Our partners

along the entire supply and disposal chain are requested to apply our standards in the areas of quality, health, safety, and environmental protection and to promote them in the process.
