Quality & Sustainability

Quality and sustainability are indispensable pillars for responsible and future-oriented development.

Achieving more Together

SGF has developed into a market leader with its products in the more than 70 years since it was founded as a family business. We offer our customers intelligent solutions for decoupling and damping vibrations and noise in technical drive systems in stationary and mobile applications.

Our core competence, defined in this way, is closely linked to mastery of the specialized materials, tools and machine technology used to manufacture the products.

Always one step ahead
In a wide range of automotive and mechanical engineering applications, our products meet the highest requirements in terms of functionality, safety, service life and comfort. Their constant further development, including processes, in close cooperation with customers and partners, ensures that our technical solutions are always up-to-date and competitive. In this way, we also sustainably secure the economic future of our company.

Fair comes first
The management and all employees of SGF are committed to responsible and lawful conduct. This principle has been anchored in SGF’s internal rules of conduct for many years.

High customer satisfaction, safety and health of our employees as well as the protection of the environment are priority corporate goals for SGF. Therefore, we consider the continuous improvement of our products, processes, environmental and occupational health and safety performance to be both an obligation and a central task.

Demanding quality, environmental and occupational safety targets in all areas, as well as compliance with all relevant legal and regulatory requirements are driving forces for us. These principles also include the contractual obligation to implement environmental protection management systems and to comply with labor and social standards. They prohibit bribery and corruption and oblige us to pass this prohibition on to subcontractors as well.

Corporate culture makes the difference

Appreciative leadership, trust and tolerance in our dealings with one another characterize our corporate culture and contribute significantly to our success. Hereby, SGF also assumes its social responsibility and is committed to respecting and complying with internationally recognized human rights.

To implement this corporate policy, SGF maintains an “Integrated Management System” for all plants, certified according to IATF 16949, ISO 9001, DIN EN ISO 14001 / 50001. This system also meets the requirements of the European Automotive Working Group on Supply Chain Sustainability. This makes us a preferred partner in the automotive and other industries. 

These principles determine our behavior towards our customers, shareholders, employees, suppliers and our environment. 

Quality

SGF’s quality policy was developed and defined by the company management in cooperation with the management team. It is understood by the managers at all levels and is supported, exemplified and enforced by them. All SGF employees and suppliers are informed about our quality policy. It is part of the company policy.

Customer satisfaction is one of our highest corporate principles. We achieve it through the high quality of our products, their delivery on time and in the right quantity, and cooperation with our customers on a partnership basis by all SGF employees. The benchmark for quality is defined by the customer. Therefore, his evaluation of our quality is also decisive.

Each individual employee contributes to the quality of our products, services and public perception through his or her personal conduct and performance. This also means that all activities relevant to quality and product safety are consistently planned, controlled and monitored.

In this way, we meet the defined requirements as they are presented to us in the form of customer specifications, rules and regulations or other requirements.
