to ensure sustainability
Our commitment to the future
As the leading manufacturer of plating chemicals and equipment for the electronics and surface finishing industries, sustainability is at the very core of our business. Finding the balance between industrial innovation, sustainability and economic viability is what inspires us. It’s what moves us forward.
Our systems are designed to use water, energy and raw materials very efficiently, which means less waste and greater savings for our customers.
Ultimately we seek to remove all of the following from our products:
- CMR substances (carcinogenic, mutagenic and reproductive toxic)
- Toxic substances (e.g. cyanide, hexavalent chromium, nickel-compounds)
- Heavy metals (e.g. lead, mercury, cadmium)
- Allergenic substances (e.g. nickel)
reduction in toxic raw materials since 2010 equals 1,700 t
of our R&D projects were devoted to sustainable goals (2015)
collaborations with OEMs, Tiers, customers, institutes and universities
A clear goal
We have set a clear goal for ourselves: to be the leading supplier of sustainable plating systems. To achieve this we rigorously invest in sharpening our expertise to offer leading edge and cost-efficient products. At the same time, we strive to stay at the forefront of promoting environmentally sound technologies.
“Our goal is to not only comply with chemical regulations, but to raise the standards even higher.”
