Our conviction is that being quality-oriented, protecting the environment, being safety-conscious and risk-aware is a substantial success factor in global competition for our customers and for our company and its employees as a result.
Therefore, our company places the highest priority on ensuring the quality of our products and services and taking environmental and safety requirements into consideration. These are an integral part of our corporate philosophy.
To live up to this standard for the long term, we pledge to operate a management system in accordance with the DIN ISO 9001 and DIN EN ISO 14001 international standards and to integrate the requirements of workplace safety (specifically those in accordance with OHRIS or othe standards e.g. 45001) and to continuously evolve the system.

MR wants to differentiate itself in the marketplace with the superior quality of its products and services, and thus of the superior quality of the underlying processes as well. Quality generally means meeting the requirements that are in place. The specific requirements are defined by the sales market, but also by the law and the corporate targets and objectives.
The quality policy is characterised by the following guiding principles
Customer Orientation (value chain MR – customer)
The customer sets the benchmark for the quality of our products and services. The customer is the recipient of the respective good or service who is directly downstream in the process chain. We measure ourselves by the degree of customer satisfaction we attain and the customer benefit we generate. This also applies to services rendered in our name by dealers and in after-sales service.
Zero Defect at customer (responsibility of each employee as part of the chain)
The objective of "zero defects when the customer receives the product" requires safety, reliability and stability throughout the entire process chain (from the supplier to the shipping department). The factors of quality, costs and deadlines determine our everyday efforts in striving towards optimum customer satisfaction. In order to accomplish this, we conduct surveys at defined cycles to determine customer satisfaction and to derive process and product improvements where necessary.
Continuous improvement (reduce complexity, efficiency)
Continuously improving products, services and processes (innovative force) offers the customer long-term added value over the competition and ensures corporate success. The required level of expertise and motivation of our employees makes a substantial contribution to keeping jobs safe. To do so, we use professional training programs developed in-house (professional training catalogs) as well as external programs.
as well as the corporate strategy, which is binding for all employees.
The qualification and dedication of all employees is the prerequisite for a successful quality policy.
Management has pledged to provide the resources required for this purpose.
As a manufacturer of durable capital goods, we handle natural resources in a responsible manner within the boundaries of technical and economic possibilities. Laws and regulations form the basis for our Actions.

It must be oriented towards the derived corporate objectives and is binding for all employees.Long-term protection of our environment is a binding corporate objective.
More than just legal assurance
We pledge to comply with laws and regulations for environmental protection. Where financially reasonable, we also want to make use of opportunities to protect the environment that go beyond this. We expect our suppliers and contractual partners to support us in this effort.
Preventive environmental protection
Where possible, the environmental responsibility of individual decisions is determined starting in the planning stage and taken into account as part of the overall evaluation. This applies specifically to planning investments, procedures and development. Preventing waste takes priority over disposing of it. Waste that cannot be avoided for technical or economic reasons is recycled where this is financially responsible; otherwise, it is disposed as stipulated by law.
Continuously reducing environmental impact
We strive to continuously improve corporate environmental protection. We measure the success of introduced measures accordingly and motivate our employees to treat natural resources, waste and emissions responsibly.
