Economy & tradition

After 25 years we are still a relatively young company and it is perhaps a little premature to speak of tradition. After all, the history of our production facility dates back to 1965, i.e. half a century, and the second generation has been leading the company history for a long time. But the economy has changed completely in the last 25 years. And it is in this time that we at Südmetall have recorded our success. We meet the highest requirements worldwide with well-tried, German quality goods. And this is exactly what we have committed ourselves to from the very beginning. The fact that we satisfy these demands is proven by our success, which has made us one of the market leaders in the German-speaking world and increasingly also on a European level.

Employees & future

We are happy to talk about the overall social responsibility of companies, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the term used for New German. And it is right to do so. At the same time, internal structures and stable, positively developing profitability must create the necessary success for a company. So what is needed is entrepreneurial skill and good team spirit, out of which a corporate philosophy grows and is supported. This is not just a theory, but a basis from which the value of a company grows. This is the basis for the willingness of the employees to get involved with commitment and the trust of the customers in reliability, quality and partnership. This in part gives rise to a passion for genuine innovation and for products and services that ‘get there’. It is a part of our world of Südmetall, where the employees still know each other by name and remain loyal to the company and identify with it.

Employers & training

Südmetall is still a young company and lives from its assertive and innovative products and the employees who stand behind them. Teams from development and production to logistics and sales do their part and we are proud of it. Great people with unique skills and backgrounds contribute every day. Together they create innovation and support the company culture. This begins with the apprenticeship, during which our trainees pass through all business areas. Almost all of the ‘Südmetallers’ who have completed their training stay with the company and see prospects and a professional future for themselves.
They are paid according to the collective agreement for employees in the Bavarian wholesale and foreign trade companies of the LGAD (Landesverband Groß- und Außenhandel, Vertrieb und Dienstleistungen Bayern).
