Our path to the future
Our goal is long-term, sustainable growth. Today, HOERBIGER is broadly positioned in various industries with a clear intention to take a market-leading role in the respective business areas. We will continue to adhere to this in the future and further develop today's business fields and establish new business fields, both organically and through M&A activities. Many of our traditional businesses are undergoing fundamental change. We are facing up to the challenges in order to actively shape change in the coming years.
In order to successfully shape the change, we will orient ourselves even more consistently to the requirements of our customers and markets. Our values, our rules of conduct, and our striving for sustainability - supported by the HOERBIGER Foundation, which enables us to plan and act for the long term - serve as a solid foundation for this.
In addition, as a Group we create the conditions for change. In doing so, we rely on our four enabling platforms of customer-centric innovation, talent management, digitalization, and operational excellence.
Change and growth can only be achieved if we place a strong focus on the topic of innovation. We would like to significantly strengthen HOERBIGER's innovation capability in the coming years and, in doing so, orient ourselves even more consistently to the requirements of our customers and markets.
HOERBIGER can only successfully shape change if we continuously develop our employees. In order to achieve this, we will invest massively in the topic of personnel development and the expansion of leadership skills in the coming years.
The aim is to make the best possible use of the leverage of digitization in all areas of the Group's activities: both in our customer solutions, such as the smart repair assistant VISTRA®, and in increasing the efficiency of our internal processes, such as through the introduction of robotics solutions in the finance area.
To further expand our strong market position, we must continuously improve and increase our cost efficiency. Operational excellence is central to this and is being driven forward in both the business and the corporate functions through initiatives such as lean management and automation.
