The progress of the steel industry in the past 300 years has influenced life, economy and culture more than ever. The Zapp family has been rooted in these developments since 1701 and has always shown particular interest in novelties. "On the basis of tradition, to pursue the new", wrote Engelbert Zapp Sr. in 1730. This joy in new developments has developed into an essential part of the company's philosophy.
»Crises and unpredictable developments are defining our environment ever more. After the pandemic, it is now energy supply and supply chain disruptions that have an impact on our activities. Significantly higher inflation, combined with increased interest rates and demographic change, are shaping the challenges of our industrial environment.
The Zapp Group has weathered these difficult times well. Our aim is to minimize the impact of these effects on us and, thus, also on you – our customers.
When it comes to steel, there have always been some hurdles to overcome – this is normal for a global operating company. Facing up to new tasks and realities, discovering new products and applications, or navigating safely through crises has become a special feature of the Zapp Group.
We live in a modern management culture, with employee-oriented human resources. Our thoughts and actions are positively oriented towards the future. Exciting tasks and projects shape our work. All this helps us to make the Zapp team attractive to our customers and employees.
We all – every single one of us – have made this our DNA and have carried the company this far. In the future, we will continue to stand by your side as a reliable partner.«
