As a manufacturer and distributor of lubricants, cooling lubricants and anticorrosion agents as well as functional fluids and process materials, FUCHS SCHMIERSTOFFE GMBH has defined quality as the main component of its long-term corporate success in its corporate mission statement. Quality is thereby placed at the very top of the hierarchy of objectives in every business segment.
The philosophy of "continuous improvement" culminating in the zero-error program applies both for our products and for the performance of every single employee in all company segments. These objectives are qualified by the setting of short-, medium- and long-term planning measures through the top management. At the same time, the management assesses the quality management system with a view to suitability and effectiveness at regular intervals in order to safeguard the quality policy and its objectives.
Our work provides the basis for our customers' and employees' trust in the quality of our products and services. However, the goal of all our quality activities is not merely to acquire trust, but also to constantly maintain and strengthen it. In particular, this requires all employees to be systematically informed of the goals pursued through the quality drive and to be trained in suitable methods for achieving these goals.
Our understanding of comprehensive quality can be described as follows: We want to achieve and maintain: (external goals) product quality service quality with the following means: (internal goals) personnel quality plant quality
