Our philosophy

Vision

We want to delight our customers with innovative system solutions for sink centres featuring professional design, top quality and great user benefits. We want to be the most appealing and preferred supplier, and achieve an internationally significant market position through excellence and dependability, particularly when it comes to customer service. We want to attract committed, talented employees who can work with our partners in a responsible and value-oriented way. We want to achieve profitable growth and sustainable stability for the company.

Sustainability is important to us

All aspects of corporate Social Responsibility and indeed sustainability are an integral part of BLANCO’s company culture. Responsibility, whether for our employees, customers or partners, our environment and society at large is part of this approach at BLANCO, and informs our actions and thinking on a day-to-day basis.

Individual accountability
One of the distinctive characteristics of working at BLANCO is that employees are given plenty of scope for self-responsibility, as we place a great deal of faith in them. However, this freedom goes hand-in-hand with the expectation that every employee will assume personal responsibility for making the most of this scope in the interests of the company. Employee satisfaction and BLANCO’s attractiveness as an employee are largely based on this coupling of the values of trust and responsibility.

Collective responsibility
Companies have a particular responsibility to society. BLANCO welcomes this responsibility and lives up to it in a large number of ways. As a family-owned company, BLANCO has prized sustainability and the the appreciation of values from the very outset. Since 2008, for instance, BLANCO has published a sustainability report every two years, and is committed to respecting ethical business principles.
