Integrity and consistency concept

Danaher Corporation is committed to standards of excellence in every aspect of our business with the goal of ethical and responsible conduct in all operations, with respect to rights and respect for the environment. The company expects suppliers (as well as subcontractors) that do business with Danaher subsidiaries to share these same responsibilities.
Ensuring these high standards is supported by Hengstler, which relies on its partners to operate in accordance with Danaher's standards and codes of conduct.
Hengstler products are made to order, in other words, the company does not accumulate standard products: they are made according to the customer's individual order received and its specification.
The necessary parts are also manufactured in accordance with the kanban system, according to the Japanese principle, which is able to reduce storage costs to a minimum. The supplier delivers the required quantity of products at the appointed time and at the agreed place, and, in addition, provides its customers with the necessary, verified level of quality of goods.
All of these activities are based on the Danaher Business System, simply referred to as DBS. The system itself is also based on Japanese principles - in essence, it was created by Toyota and developed by the Danaher group. DBS is a management system that strives to improve quality, reliability of supply, a clear cost and profit structure based on the wishes of the customer.
It should be noted that DBS provides effective organizational tools and planning with the aim of engaging company employees in the process of achieving business goals. Hengstler provides intensive and regular training for its employees in all aspects of DBS, and also takes a leading role in training employees from other companies in the Danaher Group.

It should be noted that employees are able to resolve environmental troubles on their own or notify the responsible manager of the relevant details. Protecting the environment requires all employees to take decisive action.
By defining, implementing and adjusting its goals, the company can ensure a continuous process of improvement in all sectors of the enterprise. The special responsibility of management is related to the dissemination of information, training, motivation and responsible actions on the part of employees.
