It’s all a matter of organization.
The Hengst organization is structured in a classic model, but also in a clear and consolidated way. It was established in 1958, and it is still today managed as a family business in the third generation. Particularly over the last few years Hengst Group has undergone rapid growth. Currently our organization includes 19 locations in 11 countries. Together with our 3,000 employees, we achieved a turnover of around €435 million in 2018.
"I like professional structures, a start-up spirit; I enjoy the success and seeing a purpose in what I am doing. If these conditions are present, you grow with your business."
"It motivates me to encourage executives and employees to enhance and develop themselves on a daily basis. This is the foundation for customer satisfaction and international growth."
People who have worked with me know my simple business philosophy – People, Planet, and Profit.
• People first, because it is the greatest resource of any organization that has to always grow and develop.
• Planet, because it is everyone’s responsibility to assure sustainability and protect our environment for the future.
• Profit – through continuous improvement of every process in the organization – not only operations – we assure a future for our people and the company.
"It is important to me that this company continues to be financially independent and healthy as a family business. I like lean organisations that are flexible, liquidity oriented and do not lose sight of cultural aspects."
