History

We don’t like to look back. Company anniversaries are not our thing. What we do find exciting is the future. Finding out what will come, what will change our world and our lives, what offers companies new opportunities: that’s what moves us. Since our foundation 50 years ago. Today we make an exception to this rule. It’s a beautiful, round number that is anything but self-evident. And we are also a little proud. Proud of how we have developed yet remained the same. Curious, partnership oriented, entrepreneurial, innovative. Only bigger, more international and broader. For our customers.
