Vision and values

„Why not! move different“

To us this is more than just empty words – it is the vision we are living for every day! All employees can share their ideas and get involved. Our employees are often the source of new research projects. Through our high investments in research & development we are constantly working on new, future-oriented projects.

Our employees took part in a workshop to develop 5 different values and one corresponding statement, which are important to AVL:
