ifm – close to you
"High product quality and accurate technical data are unimpeachable values of ifm." (Extract from ifm's philosophy)
Quality and performance of the products from ifm electronic gmbh are exemplary. These requirements also apply to our own value-added process. Together with our partners we are working every day on becoming better.
Reliability and flexibility
"ifm wants to offer outstanding product quality, service, and reliability." (Extract from ifm's philosophy)
We offer our customers absolute reliability, adherence to delivery dates and high availability of all catalogue products. To achieve this high degree of reliability and flexibility we need partners that also have this requirement on themselves.
Competitive costs and prices
”Low costs without quality and service are as bad as quality and service that cannot be financed...". (Extract from ifm's philosophy)
The material costs have a very large influence on our product costs. To be able to offer our customers highest quality at a favourable price we involve our suppliers in the development of new products at an early stage. We expect this transparency also from our suppliers, for example when it comes to pricing.
Compliance and environment
"ifm intends to be a moral company."(Extract from ifm's philosophy)
Suppliers are selected objectively in the interest of ifm. In particular, quality and price have to be taken into account, but the sense of social responsibility and the working conditions of the supplier also play a decisive role.
ifm also demands compliance with European standards with respect to health and safety at work and child labour from ifm suppliers worldwide.
We assume the responsibility for the effects of our activities. Thinking globally and acting locally - that is the principle of our commitment. In accordance with our corporate principles we tolerate neither corruption, nor bribe nor child labour. Our partners share the same ideals.
Furthermore we are striving for qualitative growth, i.e. ensuring that an increase in production does not entail exploitation of natural resources and pollution of the environment at an equal rate. Setting up and implementing a holistic environmental management is therefore an integral part of securing the future of our company. We want to produce in an environmentally friendly way and be successful by doing so. We have these expectations also towards our suppliers and service providers.
