Company Philosophy

Company Strategy

Concentrated Competence
The Schreiner Group umbrella brand consists of three business units that possess specific market knowledge and assist their customers as a productive development partner and reliable quality supplier. Those who work with Schreiner Group also benefit from the expertise and solutions possibilities that the special Competence Center offers.

Schreiner Group’s Competence Center concentrates on special technologies and their further development as well as customer-specific added-value services. Through the close cooperation of the business areas and the Competence Center, every customer is provided with the full consulting competence of Schreiner Group.

Corporate Values

Our corporate identity is characterized by the four values: innovation, quality, performance and enthusiasm.

Innovation 
Our idea of innovation does not only refer to the development of unique products, but also to intelligent processes and creative solutions. Every employee is motivated to contribute new ideas and see the bigger picture beyond his area and the day-to-day business.

Quality
Quality is a basic attitude. Schreiner Group has focused on quality always and everywhere - in the building facilities, the machinery, the continuing education of employees, and even in the food in the canteen. The aspiration to continually improve in all areas is reflected in our high-quality products.  

Performance
With a modern and extensive range of machinery, varied special competences, our own research and development, as well as highly competent employees, we fulfill even complex customer requests quickly and reliably.

Enthusiasm
We offer an environment in which working with colleagues, customers, suppliers, and partners brings enthusiasm. The positive cooperation is promoted at Schreiner Group through a multitude of small gifts, events, and celebrations, for example, for Valentine’s Day and birthdays, on the occasion of an anniversary, or on Christmas.

Employees

People make the difference. Of that, we are firmly convinced. In order to ensure that valuable contributions can emerge, we at Schreiner Group create a positive environment, a friendly company culture, as well as optimum working conditions. For years, we have been awarded for our contributions as an attractive employer. 

Training enjoys a particularly high priority at Schreiner Group. We train young talent in ten apprentice positions – and we do this with proven outstanding success. In the past ten years alone, five of our apprentices had the best examination results in all of Germany. Ten percent of our employees are former apprentices.

Environment

For decades, we at Schreiner Group have been committed to being ambassadors and pioneers for environmental protection Despite our strong growth, we have reduced our carbon output by 70% over the past four years. Our portion of renewable energy has increased from 15% to 51% in the last three years and should continue to increase. By using solvent-free printing ink and automatic cleaning systems, the consumption of solvents was able to be reduced significantly.


Our years of activity in the field of climate protection have been honored with numerous awards, including the silver medal of the “Munich for Climate Protection Club” and the “Lean & Green Efficiency Award.” We are one of the only mid-sized companies that belongs to the exclusive Klimaschutz-Unternehmen e.V. (registered association of climate protection companies).

Social Responsibility

We at Schreiner Group are strongly committed to our home municipality of Oberschleissheim near Munich. As the largest employer at the Oberschleissheim location, we support numerous social and cultural projects at preschools, schools, sports clubs, or church congregations.


Above all, we believe that encouraging qualified junior employees is an important aspect of social responsibility.

Maintaining Tradition

But also centuries-old traditions such as the Coopers’ Dance and the “Printers’ Baptism Celebration” continue to be practiced sincerely by us. Schreiner Group has supported the old tradition of the Coopers’ Dance, which according to legend originated in 1516. Back then, Munich was overrun with the plague. To bring pleasure to the people and to bring life back to the streets, the coopers danced throughout the city. Every seven years, most recently in 2012, the barrel makers of Munich perform the dance of their guild in their colorful costumes as the guests of Schreiner Group.

Another tradition from the craft guilds dating back to the middle ages lives on with the “christening” of young printers after the completion of their apprenticeship – the so-called “Printers’ Baptism Celebration.” By taking a bath in a wooden tub, young printers are symbolically cleansed from the “mischievousness, propensity for mistakes, botched jobs, and sloppy work” of their apprenticeship.
