Year of foundation
The vitality of our Company is based on hard work, technical inspiration and down-to-earth economics. Vitality means independence. Only a healthy company can actively shape the future as the reliable partner of its customers and its social environment. Another guiding maxim is: the healthier the employees, the healthier the company. Vitality is key.
Our corporate history is family history. It lives from the community of the people at GP and organically developed relations with our customers. For us, "family" means pursuing the same path and standing for a common target. We aim to make a noticeable mark – In the past. Today. Tomorrow.
We keep our word and stand by what we do. We think not in quarters, but in generations, and we aim at long-term targets and enduring partnerships. We bear special responsibility toward our customers, our employees, our environment and our Company.
We are receptive to what happens around us. Recognizing that the world is changing helps us to act appropriately. We listen and clearly express our objectives and interests.
We are receptive to new impulses and capable of questioning our own viewpoint. We evolve from successes and failures. Learning and flexibility are the precondition for continuous development in a rapidly changing and complex world. Learning also means learning from each other.
We implement agreed targets, guidelines and provisions precisely and consistently. The interests of our customers, of our Company and of our natural and social environment are the standards that guide us. From our employees we expect commitment and motivation, and the determination to act for the achievement of GP's aims.
In a world of continual and radical change, we can prosper only together with our customers, our partners and our employees. Together, we generate impulses that help shape the development of our industry. We focus not only on our previous successes, but aim at new thinking and new paths. Our target is not only to improve existing routes, but develop superior ones that help us and our customers to achieve outstanding results - together.
