Success needs a permanent culture of change

Those who wish to remain on the road to success should not just look to the past. The management team of BHS is experienced in breaking away from past success patterns and breaking new ground – and therein lie the roots of BHS tabletop AG.

Sometimes it makes more sense to swim against the current. Besides careful management of standard processes, we make sure to allow room for new and unexpected things. We exceed limits – both in our minds and within our organisation. This starts with us not condemning mistakes but instead seeing them as an opportunity and continues in permeable structures that openly communicate with one another – from the company management to the employee on the assembly line. New ideas can only arise from cooperation beyond the departmental boundaries.

As the Executive Board, we see ourselves as a key player whose mission is to establish a harmonious collaborative effort, which is the prerequisite for our business model as a modern service and logistics company serving extremely heterogeneous target groups. This has allowed us to grow to become the world market leader in professional porcelain. The future of our company lies in the sustained capacity for change.

Rainer Schwarzmeier

Member of the Board for Production and Logistics

“Excellence in ceramics can only be achieved by those who implement their ideas with meticulousness and the state of the art. We have the world’s most efficient production process thanks to our continuous research and development work in the area of machine technology and annual investments running into the millions.”

“We don’t have a crystal ball to see into the future. But we do have the right systems for anticipating the scope and nature of future events. This expertise is a key success factor for BHS. If you like to break new ground, like we do, you need to keep an eye on and assess risks and opportunities, figures, experiences and current business trends.”
