Strategy and Goals

An insight into our profile, our culture and our values.

STRONG PARTNERSHIP Schweiter Technologies develops business in the composites panels segment. 3A Composites manufactures materials and composite solutions in lightweight construction through the combination of suitable materials for specific applications and industry segments.

FOCUS ON INNOVATION AND CUSTOMER PROXIMITYThe core of each strategy consists of innovation (starting point for all success to date), proximity to customers via inhouse sales companies and distribution partners, as well as concentration on sustainably successful value creation. Schweiter Technologies promotes lean structures and direct communication.

LASTING SUCCESSThe holding company is not interested in buying and selling businesses, but aims to develop them beyond the timespan of those currently in executive posts. Acquisitions are primarily intended to strengthen current positions – divestments take place if there are better owners than Schweiter Technologies, or ifthere is no prospect of market leadership.
SELF-SUFFICIENT UNITSThe individual business units are global market leaders in their segment – or at least have the potential to become global market leaders. Each is autonomous – including financially.

PROMOTION OF THE CULTUREThe same care is applied to management development as to business development. A management culture is promoted which goes beyond product or even company cycles.

STREAMLINED STRUCTURESThe structures of the holding company are lean. Apart from supervising executive functions, the Board of Directors is mainly involved in preparation and implementing the strategy.

INVESTMENT IN THE FUTUREAs far as possible, the substantial cash holding is to be used for future-proof acquisitions in existing and/or new areas of business.
