Ferro stands for ...

F Fortschritt (Progress)

We are driven by progress – that of our customers as well as our own. Making a difference and actively experiencing solutions: As today's technology leader, we are at the top. We thrive on complex challenges and are inquisitive. We have fully understood that learning new techniques and adopting other perspectives are the best ways to increase our own efficiency and effectiveness. We always keep our eyes open and are curious about the approaches of other experts. To this end, we cooperate with institutes, universities, colleges and suppliers and regard the companies involved in production as partners in order to combine added value and modern materials to create an ideal product for our customers.

E Empathie (Empathy)

For us, people always come first. We invest time and interest in other people – because building a genuine connection with customers, cooperation partners and employees, being close to people and, above all, at eye level, is what sets us apart.

Always in focus: An appreciative approach. Effective communication beyond the spoken word, meeting people with a smile, praising and giving constructive feedback, asking for help, sharing knowledge and a solution-oriented approach.

With more than 200 highly valued employees, we are a rather big FERRO team ... and see ourselves as a part of your team. With flat hierarchies, conversations at eye level and cordial togetherness, we rise high.

R Rahmen (Framework)

Each of our and your projects creates ideal conditions for visionary ideas and innovative solutions.

No sooner said than done! For us, it is the word that counts, preferably, despite or perhaps because of the high level of digitalisation, still sealed with a handshake – that's how we tick as a company from the Münsterland. We keep the framework, provide you with clear competitive advantages in terms of prices and delivery times, and maximum security in the supply of the requested materials.

How do we like to stand out? Quite clearly: By being the technology leader, setting new standards, always thinking in superlatives, making the impossible possible, increasing market share through innovation. We like to show greatness-humanly, technically and with our metal sheets – and are way ahead of others.

R Reife (Maturity)

With Ferro, we look back on at least 25 years of business experience – not to mention life experience. If we were to add up the years of professional experience of all current employees, it would amount to 4,788 years. 4,788 years of profound knowledge, skills and competence in the construction, processing and finishing of sheet metal. Plus, thoughtful action and careful deliberation of decisions. We take new, complex challenges in our stride – because we know what we can do. Our orders have shaped us – and innovative solutions around components show the results. We have evolved from a pure parts manufacturer based upon external drawings to a component manufacturer giving support for production documents.

O Offenheit (Openness)

Independent thinking, accepting challenges, breaking out of routines, trying out new ways of acting, enjoying experimentation, living imagination, mental flexibility, creative thinking, sharing knowledge: Our openness to other people and unusual ideas and dealing with challenges in an unbiased way ensure the quality of our solutions and promote togetherness.
