THINKING FORWARD, ACTING AHEAD –
Our Sustainability Strategy
As a family business, we think across generations. Sustainability and social responsibility are part of our DNA. Three principles shape our daily actions: we think and act in a cycle, we behave in a manner that protects the environment, and we create sustainable growth. Thanks to this agenda, sustainability is securely anchored in our business model – and our strategic goals are oriented on the UN’s measures of sustainable development.
Christof Industries is at work across the globe as a partner in the development, construction, and servicing of industrial plants.
To date, our 4000 employees have successfully implemented some 4500 industrial plant projects in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and North America.
Our recipe for success:
A passion for innovation – for more than 50 years.
Johann Christof, CEO
It is not the contribution of any one individual that defines the strength of Christof Industries. The competencies that each individual brand brings to the mix and the fusing together of separate links in the chain as units make Christof Industries both strong and flexible
– and provide our customers with a comprehensive 360° range of services covering the entire life cycle of an industrial plant.
Natalie Christof, Director of Company Culture & Change Management
At Christof Industries, we think it is safe to assume that our society will continue to produce waste in the coming decades. We have drawn on our years of experience, the competence of our research department and support from universities to develop an efficient concept for both municipalities and megacities:
ZERO LANDFILL – a clean environment for us and for future generations.
Oliver Christof, International Affairs & Investments
Only those who know how to build on proven foundations can create lasting new things. This ability is particularly characteristic of Christof Industries. Every day we make our presence felt on the international markets with our reliability, quality awareness and innovative spirit. In this way, we secure
high-quality jobs for our employees - and excellent quality for our customers.
Günter Dörflinger, COO
These days, building highly complex industrial plants requires the ability to react quickly to new challenges, be these country-specific requirements in target markets such as the USA, Russia or South Africa, or bespoke tasks – such as time-critical work that does not disturb ongoing operations. It is in precisely this kind of situation that our company can show its true strengths:
Flexibility. A passion for quality. And absolute punctuality.
Thoralf Kickuth, Managing Director
We have a significant technological edge over the competition in the development of waste heat recovery systems. We are also a pioneer in methods for making use of waste products and in the circular economy. The combination of technical perfection and a passion for innovation are the hallmarks of everything we do. In keeping with our motto:
Excellence through Tradition and Innovation
Monique van den Boogaard, Managing Director
The operation and the manpower-intensive process of maintaining pipe yards bring with them a series of potential dangers. For this reason, the rigorous implementation of safety standards and the implementation of our own preventative measures are our absolute priority. The results speak for themselves: The accident rate was almost always zero in the past few years.
The safety of our employees is our utmost concern.
Bernhard Friedrich Renner, Managing Director
Christof Romania is the “THE” partner for highly complex oilfield logistics. As an innovative outsourcing partner for the oil and gas industry, we are able to achieve rapid increases in efficiency. A methodical hands-on approach, adaptable project management, years of experience in the repair of large machinery and not least a high percentage of female leaders have ensured quick but healthy growth for our company – also in during times of great economic challenges.
Christof Romania – the safe, fair and reliable partner for your business!
Markus Gran, Managing Director
Whether we are producing, installing, servicing or upgrading waste gas cooling systems, we support our customers across the globe with a “one-stop-shop” of complete solutions. We aim to be able to offer our business partners the best service at all times. We achieve this thanks to the solidarity and mutual support within our team. Thinking forward, acting ahead is our guiding principle.
This allows us to identify potential problems before they occur.
Peter Baláž, Managing Director
The top-qualified team at Oschatz Bohemia covers the complex portfolio of engineering services required during industrial plant construction. Experience, teamwork and flexibility are the three founding pillars on which our company’s success is built. Our approach is confirmed by the high levels of customer satisfaction that we achieve. This is why we are convinced:
A friendly work environment guarantees that companies develop in a sustainable and positive way!
Marek Matějka, Managing Director
In Christof Industries’ research and development laboratories, we are hard at work on the technologies of the future. Our focus: environmentally friendly and low-impact processes that achieve the highest degrees of efficiency and profitability. How can, for example, excess electricity from wind power be stored in form of a gas? In Christof Industries’ research projects, we are developing revolutionary answers to such questions.
Inspired by a sense of responsibility for the future. A passion for innovation. And entrepreneurial vision.
Alfred Friedacher, Head of Innovation, Research & Development
Solutions that inspire: if you ask me, that is what Christof Industries does best. Because we don’t lumber our customers with one-size-fits-all services; we provide tailor-made solutions. That means we face new challenges all the time. Overcoming these challenges is our passion:
with decades of experience, cutting-edge expertise, absolute reliability – and inspiration.
Rudolf Wagner, Director Maintenance & Plant Servicing
Building custom-made industrial facilities is a dream come true for every engineer. We develop products from the germ of an idea all the way through to full-scale production. What is different about Christof Industries? A team with exceptional qualifications – a team that really works together. And the close contact to our customers, who we involve from the very start.
Together with our customers, we create innovative products that are characterised by the highest degree of quality.
Heinz Kaller, Managing Director
If you want to sell efficiency – in the form of industrial plants, individual systems or services – then you have to apply the principles of efficiency to your own internal processes. That applies both to internal organisation and to the relations between employees. Teamwork is a prerequisite for optimal processes, and our teams have precisely the right attitude:
One for all, and all for one.
Manfred Ferlitz, Senior Financial Director
Human resources departments hold extraordinary responsibility, particularly in globally oriented organisations.
We foster visions and support the profound human needs for challenging activities, recognition and development. Furthermore, we ensure efficient processes and attractive working conditions. In this way, we contribute significantly to the successful and sustainable growth of our company.
CHRO Dr Petra Spreitzhofer
Our team's drive is to provide the best technical solutions focused on waste heat recovery and thermal power plants. This wouldn't be possible without internal transparent communication and our EP competence and experience. We commit to our customers, take care of our team, work safely, and keep investing in the future to deliver 100% satisfaction.
Innovation, resilience, and teamwork is what drives us to expand and bring sustainable business solutions worldwide.
Stella He, Managing Director
