Achieving goals together

The foundation of our everyday processes and decisions are customer-specific requirements and in-house arrangements. However, entrepreneurial action requires tolerance. A common value-system supports employees to correspond to ethic and legal requirements at the daily work and act with responsibility.

Due to the continuous expansion of the production sites it is necessary to define which values affect the common and cross-site acting. Our values and principles reflecting the specific needs of an ethic and corporate orientation as well as the principles of the automotive industry.

With our values and principles we want to support the integrity and corporate culture referring to the increasing complexity of the judicial and social framework. This is the basis for a transparent, efficient and a legal conform corporate management. These principles are an essential element of the management system of the Hirschmann Automotive Group.


Our common values – respect, preparedness for reaction, results – are the principles, which we incorporate in our work and on which we focus in our behavior. They define our responsibility to the whole environment of the company (customers, owners, colleagues, suppliers…) and are relevant for the whole organization. We live these values – day after day.

We act frankly, honestly, and fair. We take for granted that everybody acts on one’s own responsibility and keeps with our agreements. Thereby we establish long term trusting relationships.

We treat people with dignity and respect. We openly share information among each other, give feedback and listen to each other. Our environment embeds us in a continuous learning process. This enables all employees – independent of their cultur al background, gender or status (oder social ranking) – to unfold their full potential. Everybody contributes with its individuality to our variety. This represents our understanding of social responsibility.

We aim for innovation and quality in all our processes. We commit ourselves to a zero-defect philosophy (see also „Quality Approach“).

By using modern technologies we consider the attentive utilization of the natural resources. The defined methods of production and established checks help us to abide and continuously enhance our environmental ambitions (see also „Environmental Approach“).

We consider our technology not as an end in itself but as an instrument for efficient production and to achieve a unique selling proposition. Thereby we aim for maximum standardization (e.g. technology, processes, energy efficiency, material efficiency, software…). We want to continuously optimize our value creation with interdisciplinary and proactive participation in continuous improvement processes (CIP).

We admit to an active risk management based on the identification, evaluation and rating of known risk potentials. To proof our Company Group from damage we derivate acceptable actions.
