Quality, environment, information, safety and energy policy

Schulte & Co GmbH is a family-owned company in its third generation with around 800 employees at four locations and processes mainly metallic materials and plastics through industrial activities. As part of our corporate responsibility towards all social stakeholders, in particular towards our employees, customers, business partners, suppliers, authorities, other interested parties and also future generations, we define our quality, environment, information, safety and energy policies with the Integrated Management Manual. These take into account the entire product life cycle.

Customer focus

Our corporate goal is to create customer value. The customer is recognised by all employees as the centre of our company's
efforts and is the focus of everything we do. Only the highest quality and the complete fulfilment of customer requirements
ensure our success and our lead over the competition.


We pursue a consistent zero-defect target for our products and 100% delivery reliability. The necessary and economically
justifiable measures are taken to achieve these goals.

Continuous improvement

The continuous improvement of all processes is a central component of our actions. We regularly measure and improve the
quality, energy, safety and environmental performance as well as the economic efficiency of our processes using suitable key
figures. We evaluate the results and, in case of deviations, initiate measures to ensure success. We focus on innovations and
efficiency improvements. We also place this requirement on our suppliers.


Our employees are the key to high quality. The targeted selection, induction, training and sensitisation for quality,
environmental protection, energy and occupational safety ensure the necessary qualification and motivation of our employees.
We encourage every employee to actively participate in the continuous improvement of occupational health and safety and
provide the necessary and appropriate tools for participation and consultation. Protection against reprisals, discrimination or
punishment, or the threat of such, is a matter of course for us.

Personal responsibility

Only through the personal responsibility of all employees, together with their managers, can the quality, environmental, energy
and safety goals be achieved. All employees are responsible for avoiding hazards to people and the environment and for
strictly complying with regulations and laws on occupational safety, health and environmental protection as well as energy
management. Scenarios of possible incidents are regularly discussed with our employees in order to be optimally prepared.


We are happy to make our contribution to society by attaching special importance to the conservation of the environment and
resources. We are committed to sustainable management of resources such as the consumption of energy, water and the
generation of waste, and we accept our responsibility for the environment. We work in compliance with standards, legal
regulations and environmental and energy-relevant specifications. Our integrated management system meets the
requirements of ISO 9001/ IATF 16949, DIN EN ISO 14001, DIN EN ISO 45001 and site-specific DIN EN ISO 50001, as well
