Clearly defined values, which are shared and implemented by the entire BECHEM Group, play an important role in our joint success. Our values provide a framework for our daily decisions and guide us in our interactions with each other as well as with customers and partners.

Our company, family owned for generations, excels in continuity and reliability. The extensive experience of our employees is the foundation for our continued development and guarantees the proximity to our customers. Independence offers all of us the certainty and opportunity to permanently realize our common objectives. 


Proximity to our customers means the global provision of our services and the individual assessment of our customers’ requirements. We take a targeted approach to the continued development of our offer for our customers and markets. We pay attention to the sustainable and sparing use of resources to generate profitable growth. 


Trust and responsibility are the basis for fast decision-making paths and open up competitive advantages for us, our partners, and our customers. For us, as a family-owned company, the responsibility towards all employees lays the foundation for the future. Openness and tolerance in our interactions with each other and with our customers are a natural feature of our actions within the company.


Cooperation – appreciation and honesty are the foundation of our close-knit cooperation. Agile and flexible – we act efficiently and work across departments. We support creativity and innovation with a culture that accepts mistakes. Be human – we accept and respect one another. As a member of the BECHEM family, we treat each other fairly.
