For professionals

Welcome to
the 200 percenters

We knuckle down to the job.

We give 200% commitment to achieve 100% precision – because our work determines whether or not our customers can use their components. That is why we are looking for professionals who not only know what they are doing, but who enjoy it.

As a family business in Medebach, we are as deeply rooted in the region as we are with our colleagues. Yes, we are a business. But we are also a community. Therefore, although we value résumés, we are also interested in the characters behind them. 

And that is exactly why we are looking forward to getting to know you.
