What does our brand embody around the globe? In which areas do our thermoplastic solutions deliver added value for our customers? What do we have to do to ensure that we can continue to deliver this added value? Why do people work at SIMONA? What does “A company like a friend” mean to them? Why do shareholders invest in SIMONA?

The result: interesting insights into our corporate DNA and compelling profiles of our key stakeholders.
