Checking customer satisfaction
For successful additional expansion of business relationships with our customers, we rely on an open and trusting dialogue. Although we did not conduct a comprehensive customer satisfaction survey in the 2020 reporting period, we do receive a great deal of feedback and suggestions in daily dialogue with our customers worldwide. The corresponding customer surveys of recent years have also confirmed that our customers are very satisfied and loyal and appreciate the high level of expertise of our team as well as the good service and our high level of reliability. In addition, we regularly carry out customer satisfaction analyses with the help of external consultants.
Free competition characterizes global business life. This benefits us and all our companies worldwide. A competition characterized by fairness and respect is a key pre-requisite for this: We consider it a matter of course to comply with laws, regulations, standards and codes of conduct towards customers, partners, suppliers and competitors – just like we expect the same vice versa. It is important to us that we emphasize our strength without discrediting competitors. Thus, no cases were reported in 2020 in which our company had infringed the competition rules or failed to comply with law.
