Our mission statement

Living responsibility has always been the basis of our corporate culture. Active responsibility creates an atmosphere of trust. To deal with customers, suppliers and employees in a trustworthy manner, combined with courage, diligence and careful work have been the basis of the success of our family business - for more than 240 years now.

Family business

We are an independent family business managed by the 7th generation of the Butting family. Our aim is to hand over a healthy company to the next generation!


A family of employees

We are a well-trained, international family of employees and we understand ourselves as people who learn something new every day. We owe our innovative strength and ability to find solutions to many years of experience and teamwork, as well as to new ideas and unique personalities!

Sense and quality of life

We support the success of our clients and with our corrosion resistant products we support sustainability and quality of life. With our economic success we assure our future as an independent family business and contribute substantially to the living standard of our employees and their families.


A valuable cooperation

In order to make our cooperation successful and joyful, we represent the values of our "House of Cooperation":

Mutual esteem

Esteem is the basis of our successful teamwork. We are convinced that every individual deserves consideration and respect. This means, for example, that we cooperate positively with one another, stick to good manners when sending e-mails too, and talk with rather than about one another. We support people who contribute to the company’s well-being in fulfilling their potential.

Commitment to perform

Performance means for us that every individual commits himself 100 % to the success of the BUTTING Group. Here it is not only important that every individual diligently takes on the tasks assigned to him. We also support one another as a team and are successful together. If we cannot provide the performance expected, we clear up the causes together and find possible solutions. In this way we are committed to progress, growth and ensuring the future of the BUTTING Group.


Honesty means for us that what we say is in line with what we do. We know the limits of our own actions and don’t make promises that we can’t keep. We stand up for our convictions, face up to difficulties and admit our own mistakes openly at an early stage.


Openness means for us that we are open towards other people, new technologies and new forms of teamwork and organisation. In order to continue to be competitive in future, we must as a company regard changes as opportunities and take advantage of them. That is why we see ourselves as learning every day. We question existing interdependencies and develop new ideas for our own tasks, processes, the department or the company. In so doing, we take arguments and ideas of employees and colleagues into account when reaching decisions.


Reliability means for us that we build long-term relationships. We succeed in this when we live the values of care, discipline, reliability and loyalty to the company. That is why, for example, we complete our tasks and appointments reliably and on time, or communicate difficulties and possible delays to the downstream departments at an early stage. Discrete handling of personal information and corporate expertise is crucial to us.


Courage means for us that every individual takes decisions independently within his area of responsibility and implements new ideas. We therefore try out innovations on our own initiative if this benefits our corporate objectives and progress. Every individual fulfils the tasks allocated to him responsibly and stands up for the consequences of his actions. But we also stand up for our own ideas even if they do not directly affect our own area of responsibility.


A powerful, global network

We create a powerful network with worldwide cooperation partners and through global market presence with BUTTING companies.


Healthy, safe and environmentally friendly

In organizing the workplaces of our employees we take care of health and safety of our employees and visitors on-site. The safety at work has first priority in our daily work. We save resources, protect the environment and act in accordance with man and nature.


Progress by Tradition - for our customers and our staff, for this and the next generation
