Quality values - People & sustainability

This means that we enter into the kind of relationship with our partners, that as reliable in good times as well as difficult ones. An open and honest approach is just as self-evident as the fact that we live sustainability in social and environment.

Warehouse Management System – Launch

On the weekend of 2016-10-1 to 2016-10-3 our Warehouse Management System viad@t was successfully implemented by the company viastore. The WMS manages every process in logistics which when looked at more closely makes it a stock-administration system.

At the same time, the new quality management software CASQ-it by Böhme & Weis was also launched. With CASQ-it, a modular quality management system, we are able to oversee every aspect of our quality management, quality surveillance and quality securance from all angles. By interfacing with our ERP-system (central company software) the WMS and CASQ-it are “working” together.

The first weeks with the WMS in so called “real-time operation” were a huge challenge for everyone involved in the project. As expected, in the first days the WMS had one or the other, both little and big, surprises for us. Several processes required some readjustment and dealing with the new technology had to be learned and turned into a routine.

Without the outstanding commitment of our employees the successful launch of the WMS would not have been possible. We don’t take this dedication for granted and see it as proof of what a great team we have.


Social involvement

„Engel connects“ – we do not only apply this company motto to our business!

For decades, we have been commited to charitable and cultural activities - for people, the environment and animals.

Both in individual projects, as well as by regular promotion of charities - not only as a company but also as individuals. For example every year we donate the proceeds from our Christmas raffle to children's homes.

We have been able to contribute to the support of the following organisations and bodies, among others:

Um diesen Anforderungen gerecht zu werden, sind die Integrations-Werkstätten Oberschwaben seit vielen Jahren unser zuverlässiger Partner bei individueller Montage und Verpackung
verschiedener Verbindungselemente.

Mit der IWO haben wir einen kompetenten Partner, der schnelle Lösungen und Reaktionszeiten anbietet. Wir schätzen außerdem sehr, dass über dem wirtschaftlichen Aspekt der Mensch im Mittelpunkt der Zusammenarbeit steht.
