The values such as the open-mindedness, the consideration of our peers, the perseverance and the transparency are the pillars of any collaboration, within the company as well as with our outside relations. We expect from our business partners a code of ethics resting on the same values.
The environmental protection, the thrifty management of the resources such as the water, the grounds, the air and the energy, the respect for human rights and for the 2004 / 113 / CE directive (in regards to the equal treatment between men and women) are for us an obvious fact.

Our internal policy is to have the widest possible customer portfolio in order not to depend on any "strategic" customers. Accordingly, there is no "small customer". We make a commitment in the long-term supply of our customers, including and especially in period of strong activity. Our vision for our business relation is to favor agreements based on trust.

The customer satisfaction is generating value for the company; thus it is a top priority lever. The measure of the monthly indicator called IRD (Index for the Deadlines) allows to ensure a good quality of service.

Except for the existing indicator IRD (Index for the Deadlines) the customer satisfaction is measured during visits as well as by means of satisfaction surveys sent by our customers.

We improve, continiously, the relevance, the adequacy and the efficiency of the quality management system.
