Business principles


Everyone respects our family culture and contributes to this in a positive manner. We take our work–related responsibilities seriously and are fully committed to the quality of our work. We respect any decisions that have been made. We are proud, but at the same time we stand firm with both feet planted firmly on the ground.


We work together professionally, respectfully and on an equal footing, regardless of our position. It’s important to share successes and results with one another and to inform one another properly and in good time. We can talk to each other in person. We listen to one another’s arguments. We dare to be vulnerable and flexible. For us this means being open and honest, being straightforward, showing emotions, expressing crazy ideas, being innovative etc. If you are offended by someone's behavior, do not be afraid to discuss this with the person.

Customer First

Everyone realizes that our own attitudes and behavior are as important for our customers' success. We treat all customers with respect. We are aware that delivering parts is not a "nine-to-five business" for Kramp, so we adopt a flexible approach. We are easily accessible, both internally and externally.


This makes us pioneering and enterprising within our markets. We achieve this by thinking outside of the box, by being proactive and by taking the initiative. We also have the courage to take measured risks. We take responsibility for our own actions and accept that things can sometimes go wrong, as long as we always learn from our mistakes.
