Our Common Goal Is Customer Satisfaction

Collaborations With Suppliers in a Spirit of Partnership Are the Key to Freudenberg Sealing Technologies’ Success

Our customers expect the best possible performance from us. That is why we set the bar high for supplier quality and service. As part of the value creation and supply chains, they are key factors in our success. We see our suppliers as partners with whom we wish to work long-term toward our goals on the basis of trust.

To accomplish this, they must fully share in our quest for customer satisfaction and continuous improvement, in a spirit of cooperation and partnership, and they must demonstrate this again and again – regardless of whether they supply Freudenberg Sealing Technologies with high-quality manufacturing or supporting materials or whether we depend on the quality of their services.

Supplier Code of Conduct

Legal compliance, integrity and sustainability are deeply embodied in Freudenberg's corporate culture. The Freudenberg Group's Guiding Principles and our Code of Conduct reinforce our permanent commitment to adhere to laws, to promote fairness, respect cultural differences, to assume social responsibility and to protect the environment and the well-being of the people who work with and for us along the supply chain. As a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, Freudenberg has commitment to upholding the ten principles relating human rights, labor the environment and combating corruption. These principles create the framework conditions for an atmosphere characterized by trust and confidence, which promotes teamwork, innovation, customer-centricity, and the long-term success of our company.
