Our values

What we stand for as a company

Julius Hoesch stands for high product quality and outstanding services. 150 years of experience and success of our company are based on the special corporate philosophy of medium-sized companies. Shared values determine our daily actions, which include in particular a strong awareness of quality. Effective and fair competition are basic values for which Julius Hoesch stands. These are manifested in a code of conduct and are lived by all managers and employees.

Contribution to society

With the largest transshipment warehouse for industrial chemicals and specialties on the left bank of the Rhine, JH is an important regional employer. Hoesch is committed to society, especially to young people and the older generation, and is therefore involved in various charitable institutions and supports projects in the fields of youth sports, education, and care for the elderly. The company is also involved in the cultural projects of the city of Düren, most recently in its support of the Industrial History Paper Museum, which is affiliated with the Leopold Hoesch Museum.

What we want to achieve together

We are passionately committed to our customers, because we not only want to satisfy them, but also to inspire them. Above all, Hoesch's products and services are characterized by customer-oriented sales, the associated service concept and the highest level of quality. At the same time, we are continuously working on how we can support customers even better with creative solutions. Achieving optimization in every area of activity is one of our most important principles. New tasks are approached dynamically and pragmatically, with the aim of offering our customers the optimum service and the best price.

Demand and promote performance

At Hoesch, the focus is on people. Being inquisitive and dynamic, breaking new ground - that is the corporate culture in action at Hoesch. This includes the willingness of all employees to commit themselves fully to the company, to tackle new challenges and to realize goals pragmatically. At the same time, we give employees the freedom to develop their creativity and implement their ideas at their workplace. Responsible tasks should be delegated as far as possible. The following applies: The greater the success, the greater the independent action in the daily challenges. Above-average performance is recognized and rewarded, because we strive for perfection in every area of our activities.

Permanent training

We want to inspire our customers again and again. To do this, we need qualified and committed employees. Hoesch conducts intensive and extensive training activities and offers its employees various programs for in-service and personal development. Seminars and training courses are offered to develop personal and social skills.

Fit for management tasks

Hoesch gives priority to filling management positions with its own junior staff. To provide employees with optimum support in this career step, external training is provided on an ongoing basis. In this way, Hoesch prepares junior staff for management tasks in middle management.

The HOESCH NEXT strategy program

Our goal is to lift Julius Hoesch into the age of Chemistry 4.0 by 2027 and position the entire organization for the future. The starting signal was given in February 2022 when we presented the Hoesch NEXT strategy program to the entire workforce for the first time. The program provides the framework and ensures the coordination of joint project work in the coming years.

This was preceded by the involvement of all employees by means of a survey and the intensive development of the future corporate strategy with the heads of various specialist departments. The result of the workshops was, among other things, the definition of a vision of Julius Hoesch in 2027 with which everyone can identify. Every initiative and every project in the coming years will pay off in the fulfillment of this vision.
