Our values
We are there for you if you need us.

As a long-term general contractor for the companies VM Motori S.p.A in Cento, Italy, and Telma S.A. in Cergy-Cedex, France, we know our specialty. And we know your needs. That is why we are well-equipped for specialty work and operations on short notice. In addition, we also have a complete inventory of replacement parts with a high degree of availability and replacement aggregates.
Every single employee is of importance to us with their individual personalities and abilities. Our employees contribute significantly to the success of our company.

We create a comfortable working atmosphere that provides a wide range of opportunities for every employee in order that they may bring their own personal qualities and skills to our team, thus enabling us to concentrate always on our common goals. We are very proud of our employees, many of whom have worked for our company for many years.

We certainly also invest in our youth and we are presently offering an apprenticeship for a commercial trainee.

 
Within the scope of our possibilities, we engage on behalf of disadvantaged members of the community. The annual Christmas donation to the Swiss Alp Aid has already become a tradition. In 2017, we made a donation to a young family from Weissenburg,  so that the problematic living situation could improve.
 
Environmental stewardship and protection of our resources are important. We commit ourselves to handle our resources in a sustainable manner.

With our photovoltaic solar power plant on the roof of our workshop building, we contribute to the advance of renewable technologies. In April 2012, the 200 m2 photovoltaic solar power plant has been put into operation. The roof has a perfect position for the production of solar power. Therefore, we are able to harvest 3000 kWh of solar energy on average. We are consequently covering the entire demand for our workshop and we can additionally supply our administrative building with current.
