From ZUP to SIP
As early as 1991, the General Management decided to provide the leadership of the company – which had grown considerably since the beginning and even had a production site abroad in the meantime – with a scope for further development. The target setting and planning process (ZUP), in which not only the General Management, but also the rest of the company’s managers took part, was called into being.
The first step and basis for this forward-looking approach was the creation of company guidelines. These guidelines have with few modifications and updates remained in place until today, and will continue to be used in the future.

Dynamics create technological lead
