Commitment to sustainability

is part of the corporate culture

Pfleiderer Deutschland GmbH operates sites in Arnsberg, Baruth, Gütersloh, Leutkirch and Neumarkt, where it employs around 2,000 people. Under the umbrella brand Pfleiderer, the company combines the product ranges of Duropal and Thermopal. Sustainability determines not only our internal processes, but also our relationship with our customers and the society in which we live and operate.


Throughout Europe, Pfleiderer has been able to establish itself as a leading supplier for furniture and interior design, the specialist wood trade and for structural timber construction. We inspire our partners with tailor-made service offers, unique consulting competence and a maximum selection in the field of decorative surfaces. With raw chipboard and fibreboard, further improved decorative products, laminates, HPL elements and postforming elements such as worktops, we supply perfect materials for every project – fire protection, shipbuilding, timber construction, integrated hygiene
protection or eco-certification included. At our locations we produce in a particularly resource-saving, low-emission and energy-efficient way.

Commitment to environmental protection

and labour protection

We are committed to constantly improving the protection of the environment by making the best possible use of the raw materials and energy used and by complying with applicable regulations.

We also undertake to ensure a high standard of product and process quality at all times. We are also responsible for the safety of our plants. We achieve this by always keeping all components up to date with the latest technology and by using effective maintenance strategies. We take a wide range of measures for labour protection and implement safety at work regulations with the aim of preventing all accidents at work. Our employees receive regular, practiceoriented training on all aspects of labour protection.

 

„Pfleiderer has always lived sustainability at all locations and at all levels – not only in ecological terms, but also in social and economic terms.
