Our cooperate policy

Hellma cuvettes have been the world-renowned benchmark for quality for many years. This high standard of our products is a great commitment for the management and employees. We are aiming to expand our market leadership for cuvettes and set the same goal for our new product groups. Our manufacturing processes have a high degree by the education and skills of our employees. We are aware of the associated requirement for continuous personnel development.


Cornerstones of our quality management


Our high-quality standards do not only apply to our products. Every single service we provide to our customers – whether support and consulting, information and advice or the handling of complaints – follows the same principles. Our goal is a consistently positive image, all over the world.


As part of the continuous improvement process at Hellma, every employee is encouraged to participate in the further development of the company. In addition to our general employee suggestion system, we also specifically support a constant process improvement scheme in one's own work area. Improvement teams of different composition are working actively on the optimization of their own work processes. Thus everyone gets involved and a continuous flow of new ideas will be created that helps us move forward together.


To achieve this, we also live this approach within the company. The internal customer-supplier relationship between company divisions or individual employees follows the same quality standards. Only this way, the sum of the individual company processes can achieve the desired high quality for our customers.


We are certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001. The calibration of certified reference material is performed using state of the art technology according DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 and under consistent adherence to impartiality. Together with the quality management representative, a skilled and motivated team of internal auditors monitors the continuous execution of the defined management system. But the auditors do even more: Together with all employees they fill the system with life, maintain it and continuously develop it further. This makes certified quality a vivid part of the Hellma identity.

We take responsibility for our environment

Entrepreneurial actions have always an impact on the environment. That is unavoidable. Our concern is to shape the consequences of our actions as positively as possible for the environment. We treat natural resources sensibly and sparingly. When optimising our processes we always also look for economically viable alternatives, in order to reach the same goal in an environmentally-friendly way. We monitor our business practice and our products according to the effect they have on the environment. Wherever we recognise potential for improvements, we implement these consistently.

Acting responsibly towards the environment requires a holistic approach. Making this comprehensible is one of our primary concerns in the initial training and further training of our employees. A comprehensive environmental management system according to DIN EN ISO 14001 is firmly integrated into our management system DIN EN ISO 9001. In this way we commit ourselves to adhere to all environmental regulations and to communicate openly with the authorities: our environmental manager monitors the implementation of our environmental policy as well as our adherence within the company to current environmental laws. Together with our management team, he continuously develops the environmental management system.

That is how we understand the big picture of entrepreneurial actions.
