Business philosophy


The business philosophy of IM GmbH is very clear. The objective is to create a link between the needs and wishes of our suppliers and those of our customers. IM GmbH is able to realise this through the available expertise and the direct contact with our customers. We know our markets and our business. We are constantly present in local and international markets. The latter combined with state of the art business resources and expert employees gives IM GmbH the possibility of offering the best possible standard of service and products worldwide. We constantly motivate our employees to remain critical in respect of all outcomes within the company, both administratively and at the yard. Only as a complete team can we take a competitive position in the highly competitive market of metal trade. Every link within the company is of fundamental importance.

Throughout the years IM GmbH has developed further, inter alia through the implementation of ISO 9001, 14001 and OHSAS. These norms provided the foundation for an improvement of the efficiency of the company. In addition OHSAS has become a favourite topic of the company. And nothing is more important than the wellbeing of our employees. In the past years considerable steps forward were taken in this area through the intense cooperation with an external agency, i.e. Keese & Hahne from Soest (Germany). They also provide for the necessary contacts with the environmental authorities in Münster in order that all statutory aspects of our trade are respected. Our objective is to serve as an example to the entire industry.

Another important component is represented by the machinery. Here IM GmbH also made the necessary investments in the past years in order that our employees can also deliver the performances that are expected of them. A close cooperation with our loyal transporters and the company BSF as the forwarder for our export provide for a fast and correct handling of all our transport movements. Here we basically have the same objective, i.e. develop a long-term relationship with our transport partners.

All of the above ensures that we are a reliable and respected partner for many companies in the whole world. A continuous critical look at our business processes ensures that we are continuously looking for further developments and this can only result in a better relationship with all our partners.
