The Matthäi Declaration of fundamental values

Guidelines for
responsible action

As a faithful partner to its customers, the Matthäi group of companies sees itself in a position of special responsibility. Our employees practice this responsibility in their daily work - which reflects the quality standards that the company upholds, in their day-to-day dealings with customers and partners, and in implementing company values that have always been intrinsic to the Matthäi organisation right from the start. These concepts are expressed in the Matthäi Declaration of Fundamental Values; both the group as a whole and every single employee undertakes to uphold and promote these values.
