Corporate Values sustainability, courage, open-mindedness, appreciation, innovation, creativity
We all benefit from innovation
Our mission statement
One step further - since the company was founded by Josef Konrad, a courageous inventor and visionary, the values of courage, openness, appreciation, innovation and creativity have been an essential building block of the company DNA. There are very flat hierarchies and even with apprentices a warm culture is cultivated.
Since forest harvesting is a particularly dangerous area, Konrad Forsttechnik has made it its mission to enable safer timber harvesting. In the future, we even aim to approach full automation.
Sustainability, a modern term that originally comes from forestry, also plays a major role in the entire company. Based on the three-pillar model of sustainability, ecological as well as economic and social factors are taken into account along the entire value chain.
