Many of our employees have been with us for many years. This is a great advantage for our customers. We also foster relationships with most of our customers over many years. We hereby take the term 'foster' literally. Starting with the great employee loyalty through to the strategic alignment of our research and development work, we are always very close to our customers and their requirements. We supply our customers with individual solutions for every conceivable film application - either from our broad product range or as a tailor-made development.
We concentrate on our core competence.
Also in future we shall only be active in market sectors in which we shape and advance the developments. Because that is the only place we are able to move something. For the same reason we delegate as much responsibility as possible to the countries. Our people on site know best what our customers on site need and want. This strategy has a positive effect on our customers worldwide - because we gain access to an extremely broad spectrum of experience and products and are able to thus develop the next leading film solutions.
Excellence in films, quality awareness and commitment for our customers through individual solutions have a longstanding tradition at POLIFILM. Decades of customer relationships and continued positive corporate development are living proof. We have been increasing our turnover on average by 16 percent every year since the foundation in 1972.
