Supply Chain Management
As reliable company, ARNOLD is firmly convinced that the best support to the society and the corporate objectives can be achieved by reliable behaviours and practices. We consider it to be a minimum requirement that a company has to be managed by full compliance of all applicable laws, regulations and instructions.
This declaration on principle defines the general environmental policy of the ARNOLD Group.
It represents the framework for activities and procedures, according to which the ARNOLD Group commits itself to sustainable management, taking into account the interaction of economic, ecological and social aspects.
In addition to environmental protection based on government regulations, the goal is to improve the company's environmental performance through the far-sighted and systematic integration of environmental aspects into business decisions.
The policy statement applies to the entire ARNOLD-Group at the location 35781 Weilburg / Hessen. The evaluation of the topicality of the environmental policy and the corporate goals resulting from it as well as reviewing the effectiveness of the measures and procedures carried out, are the responsibility of the management.
The ARNOLD Group, hereinafter referred to as the ARNOLD company, combines the company divisions Herbert Arnold, Glastechnischer Maschinen- und Apparatebau GmbH & Co KG (founded in 1950), Helmich Automationstechnik GmbH & Co KG, B + C, Heathway Limited as well as Arnold Motion GmbH & CO KG, all centrally managed from the Weilburg plant.
The goal of the special machine construction company is the implementation of innovative production technologies in the areas of cold and hot processing of laboratory glass and quartz glass, optical fibre production and silicon processing.
A wide range of self-developed gas burners, plasma technology, induction heating or innovative laser technology is used for hot processing.
The company division Helmich Automationstechnik GmbH & Co KG has many years of experience in the planning and production of customer-specific system solutions in assembly automation in automotive engineering and robotics.
ARNOLD is fully aware of the different cultures and challenges, existing in connection with the global interpretation and application of these principles. Although ARNOLD is strictly convinced that these principles should apply everywhere, it has to be considered that methods to fulfill these expectations can be different and must be in conformity with the laws, values and cultural expectations of different societies of the world. We declare our solidarity with the principles of United Nations Global Compact (UN GC) and the declaration of the International Labour Organization (ILO) regarding fundamental principles and employment laws.
ARNOLD is of the opinion, that implementation of these principles can be done best by continuous improvements, pushing the supplier performance forward as time goes on.
