Trust and integrity as the key to our corporate governance
We have developed from our beginnings as a “workshop for medical technology and orthopedics” into an internationally active medical technology company. Since the company was founded, trust and integrity have been the base of corporate management. Behind this is the awareness that a company that is to survive and grow sustainably on the market is also dependent on the trust of its environment, i.e. its shareholders, its customers and suppliers, and its employees, both locally and globally.
Trust can only be gained through compliance with existing rules and laws. This requires everyone’s attention and willingness to point out possible serious breaches of rules if there are concrete indications of such breaches. Our whistleblower system serves this purpose. It guarantees the greatest possible protection for whistleblowers and those affected. An investigation is only initiated after careful examination of the information and if there are concrete indications of a serious breach of regulations. It is carried out in compliance with the highest levels of confidentiality and data protection.
