The main focus in the development and further development of our product range is on the use of natural and mineral raw materials. For example, maxit mines the natural raw material lime in surface mining through the company Bergmann Kalk at the Azendorf site. At the Krölpa site, maxit extracts the natural raw materials gypsum in surface mining and anhydrite in underground mining from its own strictly controlled deposits.
For 45 years, the high-quality mineral building materials have proven themselves very successfully in a wide variety of construction projects. Environmental protection is a central point of maxit's corporate policy. We regularly review the optimisation of energy-related services. In this way, we want to continuously reduce energy consumption and increase energy efficiency. To achieve these goals, we have introduced an energy management system in accordance with DIN EN ISO 50001. We comprehensively integrate our employees in the implementation and execution of this energy management system.
At the maxit Group, we don't think in quarters, but in generations. As a medium-sized company, the maxit Group enjoys very short decision-making and communication channels. More than 130 employees in the field service, in construction and architectural consulting are available to our customers at any time with help and advice. Our customers appreciate the personal contact with their contact persons, from the field staff to the managing partner. It is not unusual for maxit to honour employees who have been committed to the success of our customers for 40, 30 or 25 years - both in the office and in the field.
The concentration of our 9 locations in Bavaria, Thuringia, Saxony and the Czech Republic plays a decisive role in our company's success. The aim is to reach our customers in the shortest possible time and to guarantee a constant supply capability 365 days of the year.
Quality is the basis of our business success. By quality we mean the quality of a product, its ease of use or a service with regard to its suitability for our customers. National and international standards and regulations are always taken into account. All work processes are geared towards the goal of increasing quality. In this way, we can secure our future with innovative strength with the aim of successfully opening up new markets and maintaining our market position.
Our quality aims are always customer-oriented, which is why we check the effectiveness of our QM systems at regular intervals. The particular strength lies in the high technical level that maxit has established over the last 45 years. The newest technology and computer-controlled mixing plants for dry plaster, dry mortar and screed provide the guarantee for the best product at a consistent quality.
The maxit Group meets this challenge anew every day. Qualified specialists ensure appropriate product safety in the in-house laboratories, continuously develop new materials and thus take into account the requirements in terms of energy saving and environmental compatibility.
With our quality management, we pursue the goal of continuously improving the quality of our products and services. We want to adapt them to the technical and economic requirements of our customers in the best possible way. We believe that customer satisfaction only comes from the repeated delivery of flawless and reliable, yet value-for-money products.
