Our corporate culture: strong values, satisfied customers
Have you heard the term “honorable merchant”? Historically this referred to a tradition of values and virtues such as integrity, respect, honesty, loyalty, reliability, conscientiousness and long-term thinking. It is precisely these values that underlie our understanding of work. We see ourselves as “honorable merchants of the modern day” who think long-term and value responsible dealings with our colleagues and business partners. At the same time, we promote a working environment that is characterized by creativity, trust, open communication and respectful cooperation.
New ideas welcome: we provide space for the exchange of ideas
Dedicated and skilled employees are crucial to the company’s success. We provide space for new ideas and learn with and from one another. Our Coffee Lounge and various meeting points at our Hamburg location invite our employees to quickly get to know one another and contribute to an open and cordial working environment through the regular exchange of ideas.
At the same time, we encourage new colleagues to bring new impulses into our daily work. We believe that team spirit and continuous further development are at the heart of a long-term successful collaboration.
A global product, an international network and mid-sized structures – what an exciting mix!
Thanks to our unique intercultural network with locations in 28 countries worldwide, both our work and our thinking are shaped by different cultures, nationalities and perspectives. We are proud of our multiculturalism and promote the continuous exchange of a wealth of ideas and new perspectives. We learn with and from one another and thus create opportunities for professional and personal development. We regard visits abroad as an important part of our employees’ vocational training and further education. Because we see coffee as an international product with a virtually unique global distribution – as a commodity that is firmly anchored in so many different cultures.
Encourage and challenge: we place great value on continued training and education
