Ein Traum vor Augen

“Eye to eye with a dream”:

Today, the rapid pace at which change, globalisation and virtualisation occur is an ongoing challenge, which make  our company values and a solid corporate culture all the more important. Yesterday and today, the corporate values defined by Heinrich Grieshaber Sr. more than 50 years ago, among them diligence, persistence, reliability and customer orientation, are still cornerstones of our daily work. A productive combination of tradition and progress is our formula for a successful future.
