Our quality claim.
Questioning what we have, stabilising the tried and trusted, creating new products.
“A chain is only as good as its weakest link.” This saying is not only applicable for our chains, it can be used just as well for the process chains in our company. It requires care to be taken by each and every employee. Our integrated QM/EM system forms the basis for this and is part of our company philosophy. The certified quality management system makes a decisive contribution to the quality of our RUD products. In connection with the two other certified systems for environment and energy management, we secure process quality and the careful and efficient use of resources. Our products are characterised by top quality and environmental compatibility.
Our claim: top quality, excellent customer orientation.
Innovation, perfection and the drive to create added values for our customers: that is RUD’s passion. Our thinking is focused on fulfilling customer needs and maximum benefit for the user. The long-term partnership with our customers, their satisfaction and their trust are our priority.
As a technological and innovative trendsetter, we manage to implement new technologies, new product features and even new standards for our products and services in the market for the branches and market segments focussed on. Many of these standards will become generally accepted at a later date.
Our powerful technology position is being expanded continually, consistently, focussed and systematically. This is particularly valid for the so-called key and pacemaker technology which define our competitive advantages both at the present and in future.
As an innovative think tank we offer our customers products and services which stand out due to their distinction from those of our competitors, thus creating decisive added values for our customers. All our products and services are system packages which represent technologically smart, high-quality solutions and can thus solve the concrete tasks of our customer partners to their economic advantage.
