"We have a well-known product that has seen success all over the world. Dependability, quality and sustainability are the key to our success. Our customers and suppliers are first and foremost our partners, with whom we're determined to work closely with in the long timer. With the purchase of the company we are now able as owner to practice trans-formational leadership", says Stephanie Holzmann.
Maria Barthels, the technical systems planner, who has been in Derichs since 2009 optimises the engineering and development functions in the company. "We have the technical know-how. We hope to hit the ground running, showing our passion and enthusiasm for our work to inspire our partners. Getting along together well, promoting harmonious co-operation and thus jointly creating the ideal technical solutions are our principal objectives. Customers buy today no longer just products or services, they are looking for solutions to their problem or
an emotional experience." affirms Maria Barthels.
