Das QMH-Prinzip

We are there for you

We clearly analyse the needs of our customers. What they need and what they don’t.

You can count on us

We are specialists for the German and international market. We have refined our portfolio down to four product groups. But we are happy to say no. To orders which cannot be properly fulfilled to our standards.

These are your benefits

We don’t attempt to maximise profits by spending maximum time on-site. Our back office allows us to spend less time on-site. This reduces costs and drains on your time.

More than just a job

We enjoy our work and look forward to a sincere thank you.

Das bedeutet uns Arbeit

Mit Arbeit meinen wir flache Hierarchien, kooperative sowie projektbezogene Führung, eigenverantwortliches Arbeiten unserer Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter, mit dem nötigen „Blick über den eigenen Tellerrand“. Das setzt bei uns allen ein hohes Maß an Qualifikation und Verantwortungsbewusstsein voraus.

Wir lernen immer gerne und immer weiter. Bei QMH sind regelmäßige Weiterbildung und lebenslanges Lernen echte Prinzipien. Alle sollen ihre individuellen Stärken und Kompetenzen in das Unternehmen einbringen können. Alle sollen sich bei der Arbeit wohlfühlen. Spaß, Ehrlichkeit, Wertorientiertheit und eine aufrechte Feedbackkultur prägen unsere Arbeit ebenso wie persönliches Engagement.

Und noch was: Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter, Kunden und sonstige Geschäftskontakte werden niemals aufgrund des Geschlechts, der Rasse, der ethnischen oder kulturellen Herkunft, der Religion oder Weltanschauung, des Alters, geistiger, seelischer oder körperlicher Beeinträchtigungen oder der sexuellen Neigung diskriminiert. Ein ehrlicher und respektvoller Umgang aller miteinander ist die Grundvoraussetzung für die Zusammenarbeit im Unternehmen.
