Sustainable. Attentive. Responsible.
Out of respect for people and the region
As an automation partner that operates across the globe, Grenzebach bears particular responsibility. We are well aware of this fact and therefore exploit our opportunities in a responsible manner – in harmony with your objectives, society, and available resources. We keep the individuals involved in mind at all times, and our working environments serve the people, not the other way around.
We want to offer our employees a place where they feel comfortable, safe, and valued. As a result, we prioritize occupational health and safety measures that make a lasting impact. As a family-owned company, we are also deeply rooted in the regions our sites are located. We play an active role in the local communities and have done so for decades.
Occupational health and safety considered right from the start
A sustainable workplace
Working at Grenzebach means cultivating a reliable, respectful, and collaborative relationship. Our employees are the heart and engine of our company. It is their in-depth expertise and unwavering focus on our products and customers that allow us to develop high-quality solutions and high-performance technologies that add genuine value. Because we care about their well-being, we promote holistic health management and implement effective occupational health and safety measures.
We are our employees’ partner. As such, we strive to offer workplaces that are as safe and healthy as possible – for our visitors as well as our employees. A variety of programs designed to promote active preventive health care are a matter of course for us.
Humans and machines – a sustainable unit
- Robots can take over dangerous, heavy, and ergonomically demanding tasks
- Driverless transport systems make workplaces more ergonomic – they often save employees from having to take tedious trips and, for example, handle the transport of heavy goods
- We constantly develop work, fire and health protection. Since 2019, the control elements of our automated guided vehicles are galvanically isolated from the battery voltage and person-safe due to a Lidar laser scanner 360°
- Interacting with innovative topics develops skills and creates new fields of employment
We assume responsibility for our employees

“As diverse as we are as people in our work together at the Grenzebach Group, as diverse are the ways in which we as an employer support our colleagues in their training and further education. At home in the regions of our locations, at home globally in our international offices. Family cohesion and global cooperation are the foundation on which our employees can grow personally and professionally. We actively support this. Because this is the key to creating ideas that inspire, advance, and change the world of tomorrow.”
