We regard the long tradition of our company as a solid foundation for shaping the future. The corporate character at KEIM is still influenced by the spirit of its founder. His name stands for vision, drive and the courage to pursue something new. The innovative achievements of A.W. KEIM are carried on in our striving to continually set new standards when it comes to mineral structural protection through the technological advancement of silicate technology. Our clear specialisation makes the best use of our unique skills and knowledge when it comes to mineral structural protection. We are convinced by the added-value of mineral construction products, and we consequently and actively implement our conviction.
We want to expand our leading role on the market and in terms of skills and knowledge in relation to mineral-silicate structural protection by concentrating on our core skills. We want to consistently inspire with above-average performance, and use our flexibility for short-term and customer-oriented activities.

Our products and services are orientated around being sustainable, something we ourselves feel obliged to do. In this sense, we pay particular attention to the economic efficiency, ecological compatibility and social responsibility of the services we offer.
Quality is the key to our success. It is the basis for our customers' trust in the products and services that we provide them and, as a result, their trust in our company. That is why we place long-term quality assurance ahead of short-term success. Quality is something concrete for us. This means we bring together a long-term time horizon in the sense of the life-time of products, economic efficiency and customer satisfaction. Being the clear leader when it comes to quality is a fundamental aspect of how we see ourselves.
We strive to find holistic solutions that are in harmony with our environment. Ecological aspects are an integral fundamental element of how we design our product range. We see an opportunity to increase our company's success through considerate and responsible interaction with our environment. A conscious environmental orientation supports the frugal use of raw materials, energy-efficiency and, as a result, cost-optimisation processes. It also fosters the search for innovative, future-oriented and competitive product solutions.
We consciously, and with conviction, also face up to our responsibility around the social issues associated with our actions. Externally, we see our social responsibility as an obligation to produce construction materials that are completely harmless to health. We want to maintain and create values, without passing on any limitations to coming generations. Internally, we see our responsibility as an obligation to promote positive relationships between people, as well as the respect for other cultures and nationalities. We feel obligated to secure the jobs of our employees and to work together to create further new jobs.n.
Our employees are our most valuable resource. Our daily work is characterised by mutual support and appreciation. This manifests itself in listening, sharing information and being ready to help. Being different is something we regard as a welcome aspect of human individuality. The success of our company is our joint and shared success. Each and every single employee contributes and is constantly aware of their responsibility.
Leading means carrying responsibility. Our management staff members are role models, they display team spirit and practise fairness. They motivate employees by giving clear tasks and responsibilities. They are duty-bound to care, to ensure equal chances for everyone and to develop commitment. Where people work, mistakes are going to happen. We use mistakes as a chance to learn. Practical, technical and people skills are more important to us than titles and ranks.
We regard our customers as partners to our success. Partnership is like a contract for us. We pledge openness, honesty and fairness in communication and within the working relationship. Our customers deserve the best we have to offer. It is up to each and every one of us to make a partner out of a customer. We work efficiently and in a goal-oriented manner, we take chances, think long term and act proactively. This is how we ensure our income. With the added value of our services, we contribute to our customers' and partners' economic success.
