We are happy to report that the 5S program already shows first results for all employees, and we would like to thank all employees in the areas that first implemented the 5S method for their fantastic work. As a next step, we are looking forward to jointly expanding 5S throughout the whole company.

A brochure with all the information on 5S has been produced to support our employees. In the near future, each employee will be provided with a short training and the brochure, which is easy to use and read, visually identifiable and practical (simply put it in your pocket). All employees will have the opportunity to take the brochure with them to their workplace and use it effectively.
