Verder Group is a family-owned business founded in 1959 in Vleuten, the Netherlands and has grown into a successful manufacturing company employing over 1,600 people based in 28 countries.
Our mission is to have a strong know-how of niche market technologies in the field of manufacturing so that we can offer our customers the right solutions tailored to their specific needs. Our extensive product range can currently be found in almost all sectors of the industry.
As a company, we are passionate about technology and innovation. Every day we are devoted to identify and market new solutions for our customers. We are analytical, open and engaged. We are continually broadening our knowledge and expertise. This continuous search for impact on our customers is not only realised by implementing technical innovation in our products, but also by responding to increased demands in terms of data and speed. This encourages us to improve our processes and structure in order to seize the opportunities when they arise.
We take initiative and are entrepreneurial, but always with attention to the people involved. In an international organisation where diversity is a high priority, maintaining our corporate culture is of enormous importance. Therefore, we pay close attention to the way we treat each other, our customers, our suppliers and other stakeholders. We also pay close attention to the way we operate. Everyone must know what we, as an organisation, stand for. That is why we have a clear code of business principles. These are written principles that offer guidelines on how to act, but there are also powerful ‘unwritten’ informal characteristics that strongly determine our culture.
We go to the source by working together as a family and by communicating with each other honestly and openly. We go to the source by talking directly to people, not about people. We feel best in an informal working environment. Straightforward respectful communication, avoiding politics. Working together to reach the same goals where the total interest always outweighs the self-interest.
We go to the source by taking responsibility even in the most challenging situations. We work hard to find solutions for challenges and do not give up. By taking ownership, we understand that we are the source of related decisions and we will tackle arising problems and will not leave these issues to others. Both in case of successes and challenges, we work using a ‘can-do` mentality.
We go to the source by working with passion and commitment in everything we do. Working with passion means that our work is the source of our satisfaction and has true impact on our lives and the lives of our customers.
We go to the source of the data directly in order to have both overview and detailed knowledge. We know the details, so we will not be surprised, and we always keep the end goal in mind. We love personalities but no egos, go-getters and problem solvers. We are pragmatic and focused. This way we keep the company resilient, now and in the future.
We go to the source by valuing a proactive and competitive attitude, showing initiative and entrepreneurship and the will to encourage each other to act in the company’s best interest. There is room for trial and error, as long as we are able to learn from it and continuously improve ourselves. Therefore, we are the source of original ideas and solutions.
Working at Verder is more than just having a good job. You become part of our family, which means that we work as a family and we trust and support each other. Go to the source. That summarizes our corporate culture perfectly. We know who we are and where we came from. We know what we stand for as a company. We know each other and know where to find each other when needed. We can and will always refer to that. We always go to the source.
This is Verder Group and this is our DNA.
