The company thyssenkrupp

We are a diversified industrial group.

We are a diversified industrial group.

But what does that actually mean?

We are a community of more than 156,000 colleagues on all continents. Openness, transparency, mutual respect and commitment – these important values form the basis for the way we work together, our relationships with our customers, and our business success.

Our corporate strategy

engineering. tomorrow. together.
Three words that describe who we are, what we do, and how we go about doing it.

engineering

engineering

… is part of our identity. It characterizes the way we think. In the plant, in the office, at every site throughout the world. It means developing solutions for our customers – big and small. Today and tomorrow. As a diversified industrial group we supply reliable products, services and solutions – on schedule, in premium quality, and with a convincing price-performance ratio. In the spheres of mechanics, plant construction, and materials. We know our customers and their markets. We invest in relevant technological innovations, and in doing so make the world a little bit better. We are a reliable partner – that is our pledge.

engineering. tomorrow. together.

tomorrow

We have written over 200 years of industrial history. That is the source from which we draw our strength and competence. But a great past is not sufficient for coping with the challenges of the future. Which is why we are thinking today how we want to be tomorrow. And we know today what the world of tomorrow and our customers need. We develop sustainable solutions that are also capable of meeting future challenges. We improve what already functions. And we revolutionize industries if they make people's lives easier and create a competitive advantage for our customers.

engineering. tomorrow. together.

together

We share our knowledge, combine it and use it to create something new – across companies, industries, and countries. Our business activities benefit from the fact that we in our Group network think and work on a cross-company, cross-functional basis. "together" is a pledge we give our customers, our partner companies, and ourselves. We trust and are trustworthy. We are a team. We work together. We learn from each other and advance ourselves together. After all, the really big objectives can only be achieved together.
