Our value framework goes beyond legal regulations, it is based on the principles of personal integrity, family togetherness, willingness to learn and entrepreneurial spirit.

Code of Conduct
Röhlig's corporate culture has developed on the basis of values and principles since the company was founded in 1852. Every employee embodies this culture and contributes to its continuation in the future by acting responsibly and ethically. Our Code of Conduct is both an expression of appreciation and an incentive to see and accept one's individual responsibility in the workplace. Personal integrity is the basis for this. It promotes trusting business partnerships and a positive working atmosphere. It starts with external appearance and professional manners and continues with respectful interaction without discrimination, belittling or even harassment. Similarly, we expect the highest integrity from our employees with regard to bribery, confidentiality and conflicts of interest. This standard also and especially applies to the members of the Röhlig Global Executive Board, who set a good example. > Code of Conduct

Our values: Truly Reliable, Forward Thinking, Eager for More
Our way of working is characterised by these three corporate values. Even and especially as a company with a long tradition, we always look to the future and question our daily actions to see how they can be improved. Out-of-the-box thinking is encouraged, as this is the basis for all innovations. Entrepreneurship means fully identifying with one's work and its results and always being ready to ensure the customer's full satisfaction. The basis for this is a working environment at Röhlig that tolerates mistakes and sees them as an unavoidable intermediate step in the pursuit of excellence. We value our employees' share in the company's success and reflect this back with corresponding appreciation.
