Principles

+ Environmental Responsibility
Environmental protection and the careful use of natural resources are a high priority for us. Erdrich's environmental and energy management system provides assistance in this respect. Environmentally friendly design and technical safety are fixed targets while our products are still being developed. We replace heavy cast and turned parts with considerably lighter formed parts and thus contribute to a lasting reduction in fuel consumption and CO² emissions. We are actively involved in the development of environmentally friendly drive systems.
+ Product Responsibility
With our products we are making a contribution toward tackling the central challenges of our time and also of the automotive industry. Precision is the highest goal in everything we do. We allow only small tolerances for our products so that they meet the highest demands of our customers. We achieve this through efficient procedures and the use of state-of-the-art technologies.
+ Responsibility for Quality
Our formed parts are quality products. We have been working at a consistently high level of quality for decades. This is ensured by our quality management, which covers the entire value-creation process, and by our employees, who are aware of their responsibility - day after day. For this we have received numerous certificates and awards from our customers.
+ Employee Responsibility
Our employees at our five locations around the world are the basis of our success. We take particularly good care of them. The diversity of our employees is essential for our corporate success as a global player. Erdrich does not tolerate any kind of discrimination, harassment, or bullying - and is committed to equal treatment and opportunity for all employees. We improve the satisfaction of our employees by promoting professional qualifications. The Erdrich Academy offers a variety of seminars. Erdrich ensures occupational health and safety in the workplace in line with the applicable national regulations. Erdrich maintains and promotes the health, performance, and job satisfaction of its employees through continuous improvements in working conditions and a variety of preventative actions and health promotion programs.
+ Corporate Social Responsibility
For us, social responsibility is an indispensable component of value-oriented corporate management and a key factor for sustainable success. The social development of the respective region of our locations is close to our heart. That is why we are involved in many charitable projects worldwide. For example, we support local associations, participate in aid projects (e.g., Malaika's children's home in Kenya), or actively support pupils and students in local schools and universities.
