Five values that lead to a vision.
Our corporate values act as guiding principles for the entire organization, as well as for our employees. They define how we work together, how we treat each other, and how we interact with our customers.
By defining clear values, we create a uniform culture as a company. This way, we ensure that all employees are moving in the same direction. As a result, at imat we are more motivated, more productive and even more committed to our mutual goal: to be the first choice for our customers.
Corporate values strengthen the trust of our business partners because they show that we at imat have a clear idea of how we work and what goals we pursue.
Our values convey what imat stands for:
First choice in automotive validation & consulting.
"We must create a corporate culture where outstanding products and services are created naturally by the mindset of our employees."
(CEO, Hans-Willi Müller)
