The five cornerstones of our philosophy
Quality and technical perfection
What we do doesn't happen by chance. Our aim is to develop and produce high-quality and technically perfect products, so that we can offer our customers the best possible solutions. This top quality is ensured thanks to a consistent quality management system which doesn't just begin with production, but starts as early as the development phase.
At the forefront of everything we think and do are our customers. Our activities are geared towards their needs, their requirements and their wishes. The results of customer requirements and experience are constantly factored into our product development process. We develop new products in close cooperation with our customers.
Innovation and change
Innovation and change are our guiding principles. Everything we think and do is characterised by the quest for the constant, ongoing improvement of our products and the search for new technological solutions. Our goal is permanent, continuous innovation, both in terms of our products and our organisation as a whole. Our conviction is this: ongoing innovation is the basis of long-term success. Only through constant renewal can the challenges of the future be faced.
Our most important strength is the people who stand behind ASM. Our success is based on their commitment, their skills and their ideas. Open communication with each other, respect for and recognition of others and the challenge of professional and personal development at individual level are all crucial for ASM.
We live in, from and with nature. For this reason, it is our goal to act conservatively with natural resources when manufacturing our products, and to use our products to contribute to a reduction in environmental pollution, thanks to the resource savings that our products bring with them.
