Lumberg – Our Mission Statement

Time and again, values make up the foundation on which the specific resources of family businesses depend: their long-term strategic orientation, their strong ties with the region, the responsibility for their employees’ well-being, their social commitment as well as passing their heritage to the next generation – all of this is anchored in specific values. These values, however, mirror a pool of resources which often define the frequently stated advantages that family-run enterprises enjoy in comparison with other companies.

Lumberg is such a very family business in the third generation and we are proud of our roots and tradition, of a mindset that allows us to think, lead and work within present-day – but not trendy – professional structures.
We are part of a powerful economic force. 91 percent of all German enterprises are family-run businesses. They generate 48 percent of sales and provide ap-prox. 56 percent of all jobs in Germany registered for social security contribution.

We offer interesting challenges in pioneering projects, congenial colleagues and the space for personal development. Our company distinguishes itself with its almost family-like atmosphere, short decision-making channels, innovative pro-cesses, precision products, the concentration on specific business fields only – and our passion for connections.

Lumberg defines sustainability as strengthening the company’s future proofness for generations to come. This explains why we consider sustainability to be a ma-terial innovation driver and continuous process that aims to improve the compa-ny’s economic, ecological and social performance. Sustainable and responsible management at Lumberg is a fixed element of its corporate culture and has been practiced for more than 91 years.

As a technology company with a clear focus, Lumberg offers innovative product solutions worldwide which secure the lasting success of our customers while con-tributing positively to a globally sustainable development. The basis for this is a responsible corporate management that targets a long-term value creation. Lumberg therefore aims to achieve a sustainable value creation – for our custom-ers, for our company, and for our employees.

Our Code of Conduct: Social Responsibility

As a globally-operating company, Lumberg is committed to its social responsibility.

For us, this means that we assume the responsibility in relation to the conse-quences of our entrepreneurial decisions and activities from an economic, tech-nical, social and ecological perspective. Within the context of our possibilities and scope for action we voluntarily contribute toward the well-being and the sustain-able development of the global society at our international sites. We orient our activities toward universal ethical values and principles, especially toward integri-ty, honesty and the respect of human dignity.

As a globally active company, we are also committed to complying with the provisions of foreign trade law, which regulates, among other things, the cross-border transfer of goods (merchandise, software, technology) and the provision of technical support at home and abroad. Through the responsible actions of our managers and employees, we support international efforts to prevent the proliferation of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons and the uncontrolled transfer of armaments and to combat international terrorism. Compliance with human rights in relation to both internal and external business processes is essential for us.

As a member of Germany’s Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association, the ZVEI – Zentralverband Elektrotechnik- und Elektronikindustrie e.V., Lumberg has adopted the Code of Conduct on social responsibility developed specifically for our industry. The ZVEI Code of Conduct is oriented toward internationally established standards and covers all relevant topics.
