Quality & The Environment

Responsible treatment of resources

The Distrelec Group consistently complies with statutory and normative guidelines. We also regard ourselves as a pioneer and we implement state-of-the-art knowledge directly: We have frequently integrated the content of many rules and regulations into our business procedures well in advance. We are aware that our habitat must be protected sustainably and participate in numerous environmental projects in line with this philosophy.

Protecting the environment – while serving our customers

Numerous environmental management measures established by the Distrelec Group make the processes of our customers' everyday business much easier: We ensure that substances in goods or packaging which could potentially harm the environment or health are not used at all or remain well under the statutory maximum limits. We comply with the packaging and returns regulations, and much more. For you as a customer, this means not having to carry out time-consuming and cost-intensive approval procedures.

Current information on the subject of environmental management constantly on hand

In the event of questions on substances used – whether for preservation, during despatch or construction of appliances themselves – we make several different possibilities available to you: The online catalogue contains colour-coded symbols indicating the use (or non-use) of any harmful substances. The online info-centre provides current information for easy downloading at all times. As personal contact partners, our employees will be pleased to provide information on site and by phone. Journalists can also find out about everything of interest from our press office.
