We believe in the strength of small and medium sized companies.
Business of our Group Members is based on small hierarchy, trust, openness, team spirit, and employee responsibility. As part of the Group our companies can use synergies, offer broader services and act globally.
Looking at books from E.F. Schumacher and Salim Ismail we feel that we already have some characteristics of their business models of the future.
