Compliance at EJOT

100 years ago when Adolf Böhl started the production of screws and nails in Berghausen, it went without saying that everything he did was in line with the law. It would have been unthinkable for him that, many years later, the obvious would need to be written down in form of compliance guidelines.


Why does EJOT see a need for this now?

Everyone agrees, that the service quality should be the convincing factor within a competitive environment, and not corruption, price-rigging or other measures that cannot be tolerated. EJOT wants to be a reliable and fair partner for all its customers, because this is the reason EJOT is a well-respected fastening technology business. EJOT wants to maintain and develop this position in the future.

The compliance guidelines are the ethical and legal compass at EJOT. They contain the most important rules for conduct within the EJOT Group as well as with our business partners and the public. Shareholders, management and advisory board expect all employees to strictly adhere to the compliance guidelines.

EJOT® The Quality Connection. This slogan explains EJOT's success. EJOT convinces with quality. The EJOT compliance guidelines are going to help us offer the best service for our customers and ensure our reliability as a partner for our suppliers.
