FKM sees itself as a leading developer and manufacturer of rolls with coverings made from polyurethane, nonwoven and high temperature resistant materials. FKM mainly but not exclusively addresses producers and processors of sheet metal and the car industry. FKM covers the most important economic regions with its own businesses in Germany, the USA and China and a network of partner firms.
FKM aims for a partnership with customers so that we can meet challenges and solve problems as effectively as possible. The foundations of this partnership are our detailed technical knowledge and open communication with the customer. We often develop new materials for customers which are specially adapted to their specifications. As a conscientious and innovative supplier, we contribute to the economic success of our customers.
FKM has a central management team which has the final say in all important decisions. However, for most decisions, we follow the principle of subsidiarity: what can be decided at a local level is decided on a local level. Team spirit plays an important role here. The best solutions are found in open and cooperative discussions.
FKM believes that it has both an internal and external responsibility. Our employees are responsible for their own work and have a right to fair pay, further training and occupational safety. We do not tolerate any kind of discrimination or bullying. We place great importance on being seen as a good neighbour in the places where our facilities are located. We avoid products and procedures which put the environment at risk or harm the safety of others.
FKM is a family-run business. With this ownership structure, it is possible to develop strategies which favour the long-term survival of the company rather than short-term success. This strategy is put into practice with continuous investment in new products and procedures but also in the expansion of a network of partners, both at home and abroad. Our customers and employees have been benefitting from our stability and power of innovation since 1967.
