Philosophy of SWIETELSKY

Decentralised organisation in profit centres, delegated responsibility as well as employee participation in success mean that our motivated and competent employees can act as "entrepreneurs within the company".

The constant enhancement of services and the willingness of our employees to continuously develop their skills are responsible for this positive development. The experience gained through numerous construction projects feeds into new projects and helps SWIETELSKY to improve its performance constantly. This is reinforced by the company's own development work and active participation in research projects.
