Our values

Corporate culture - What we stand for

"We are all on very familiar terms with each other."

"On my first day at igus, the way things were done seemed somewhat unusual. Instead of closed office doors, there are only open spaces, supported by yellow pylons. Anyone can talk to anyone else. We are all on very familiar terms with each other. And the CEO sits right in the middle. This ensures easy and fast decision-making channels. I had never experienced anything like it before but I was immediately taken by it."

The igus® "solar system"

At igus, the customer is at the centre of all activities. For us, the customer is as important as the sun is for life on earth: it is a source of light, heat and energy. The customer gives us ideas and work, and enables us to grow and make progress. The "igus solar system" is firmly rooted in our corporate philosophy. Employees and teams orbit our customers like planets, make a note of their wishes and find solutions for their problems. If the customer is satisfied, so are we.
Even the architecture of the igus headquarters reflects the idea of the solar system. From a distance, the sun-yellow pylons can be seen pointing up into the sky. They support the factory building that surrounds them. This is why it does not have walls and ensures a high degree of flexibility.
