A compliant and ethical fastening systems partnerA century ago, when Adolf Böhl started the production of screws and nails in Berghausen, it went without saying that everything he did was in line with the law. It would have been unthinkable for him that, many years later, the obvious would need to be written down in form of compliance guidelines.
Why does EJOT see a need for this now?Whilst the service quality should be the convincing factor to partner with EJOT in a competitive environment, we must also acknowledge that assurances in respect of unfair working practices should also be stated clearly and unambiguously. Any hint of corruption, price-rigging or other unethical activities will never be tolerated by EJOT.
We want EJOT to be a reliable and fair partner for all its customers and establish the company as a well-respected fastening technology business. But we will never get complacent, so we work continuously to maintain and develop our position in the future.
Our compliance guidelines are the ethical and legal compass at EJOT. They contain the most important rules for conduct within the EJOT Group as well as with our business partners and the public. Shareholders, management, and advisory board expect all employees to strictly adhere to the compliance guidelines.
Everything we do is driven by our commitment to EJOT® being The Quality Connection. This underpins EJOT's success and enables us to convince our partners with quality. The EJOT compliance guidelines help us to offer the best service for our customers and ensure our reliability as a partner for our suppliers.
