Hidrostal stands for Independence, Sustainability and Quality. For the Hidrostal Group with its global production network and its approximately 20 sales and service companies, high ethical standards and unrestricted commitment to compliance apply. Our compliance perception goes far beyond adherence with laws and regulations in all business activities and contracts.
Our Corporate Values have been our success factor since 1957.
Our values are deeply rooted in us and form the basis for satisfied customers and our corporate success.
Since the beginning, Hidrostal has been an independently operating, family-owned company. At Hidrostal, we’ve always believed that being independent is the best prerequisite for reaching our own goals and that financing ourselves forms the basis for independence. Our independence allows us to make free entrepreneurial decisions for the benefit of our customers, employees and the company.
Sustainability and protecting the environment have been an integral part of Hidrostal’s philosophy since it was founded. This is reflected not only by our strategies and decisions as a company, but also in the values practiced by the company’s owners and employees. Hidrostal products are intended to be used for sensible purposes, to promote human health and protect the environment.
High-quality products and a continual commitment to improvement form the basis of our company. We achieve this with our qualified and motivated employees, the best possible work materials and in-depth quality controls. That’s why we also invest in an exceptionally high level of vertical integration.
When it comes to developing our products, we also strive for utility value such as service life, cost-efficiency and natural energy efficiency. Hidrostal pumps boast an above-average service life and are also low-maintenance.
Climate protection is important to us. In 2015, the United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At Hidrostal, we are committed to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in all business areas.
In the context of its business activities, Hidrostal has a particular impact on Goals 6, 8, 9, 11, 13 and 14.
Our quality policy is based on our corporate values of independence, quality and sustainability.
It forms the basis for satisfied customers and our corporate success. We are guided by ISO 9001:2015 (quality management) and the EN ISO 14001:2015 standard (environmental management) as well as the following aspects:
As part of our commitment to sustainable and responsible business practices, Hidrostal has embedded the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact into strategies and operations, and committed to respecting human and labour rights, safeguarding the environment, and working against corruption in all its forms.
In order to emphasize the importance of "human rights", the Hidrostal Group voluntarily restricts deliveries to countries with a The Economist democracy index < 1.5 and delivers to countries with a democracy index between 1.5 and 3 only with the greatest restraint / only in exceptional cases.
Legality and integrity are top priorities at Hidrostal - worldwide. We demand this of ourselves - and of our employees, executives and management - but also of our customers, business partners and all other stakeholders of the company.
Our Code of Conduct summarises the essential content of our guidelines and instructions for our activities. It serves as a guideline for our conduct in day-to-day business. All our employees must be familiar with it and live it in their daily work environment.
