Paths to Globality

Welcome to the Annual Report 2008

...// WACKER generates nearly 80% of its sales outside Germany and is thus already today a globally-oriented enterprise. Our products are sold worldwide. We work to the same standards of sustainability, environmental protection and occupational safety throughout the world.

When it comes to individual markets, products or customers, we think locally. Our philosophy is that the focus of responsibility for day-to-day business lies within the region – with the people who know their customers. The better our understanding of markets, customers and cultures, the better we are able to recognize and meet their requirements. We are convinced that businesses which operate according to this principle will enjoy long-term success.

This annual report takes four examples to illustrate WACKER’s global orientation, the routes we have taken along the way and the understanding with which we are meeting an increasingly globalized world.  mehr
