What’s important to US at KRONEN

We aim to maintain a cooperative corporate culture in which employees, customers and partners work together as equals. To find out more, you can read about our mission & vision here. And these are our values:

We consider sustainability to mean taking ecological and economic responsibility when developing our solutions, for example with regard to energy and water consumption or the longevity of our machines and systems. For us, sustainability also involves establishing customer relationships on a long-term basis.

The development and success of KRONEN mainly depend on our employees, their individual abilities and potential and their team spirit. We value, use and promote the different strengths of our individual employees, all in line with the motto of “Purposefully using existing potential to tap into new potential”. What’s more, both KRONEN employees and our international representatives are responsible for qualifying our customers so that they can use and operate KRONEN products in the best and most profitable way, for example by running training sessions on servicing and using our machines.

We create a synthesis of products, services and expertise that enables us to meet every customer requirement. When confronted with limits, we find ways to overcome them, even if it means transcending boundaries between countries and cultures.

For us, being innovative is all about precisely understanding our customers’ new demands and using new approaches to find a customer-fit solution. We also consider being innovative to mean using our own resources when working together with our partners in the worlds of research and industry to look for ground-breaking solutions for the processing of fresh produce. In cooperation with our partners, we want to provide our sector with a better, safer future.

As a family company, we place high value on fair play. KRONEN is appreciative, loyal, open-minded and down-to-earth. We consider ourselves to be a partner for our customers and our suppliers, who put their trust in KRONEN, rely on us and expect us to do the same with them. We approach everyone involved in our company, both in-house and in the field, in the same way – working together as equals. When confronted with challenges, we tackle them with an objective and solution-oriented approach. We are a cooperative, committed, reliable and responsible team. All in all, KRONEN is defined by its friendly working atmosphere, fair treatment and culture of dialog.

We take a responsible approach to our staff, our customers and the environment. We strive to always provide our customers with services and machines that are consistently of the highest quality. In addition to function, we also place a strong focus on safety and hygiene. KRONEN keeps its promises. If we make mistakes, we admit to them, correct them as quickly as possible and learn from them. We are driven by our commitment to supporting the production of healthy, fresh foods.
