Corporate social responsibilty
We actively take responsibility for our employees, the environment and society.
Every day we prove anew that economic and fair working conditions are possible in Germany:
In our plastics production we employ men and women from different cultures and want to meet their needs and abilities. That is why our employees receive language training free of charge and support them in developing their potential so that they can contribute optimally to ikusto GmbH.
Since environmental protection and sustainability have the highest priority for ikusto GmbH, an energetic concept was implemented for the construction of the production hall in 2017:
With the installation of a combined heat and power unit and a photovoltaic system, the electricity for the injection moulding machines is generated by the company itself. The waste heat generated during the injection moulding process is used to heat the buildings for assembly, storage and the office. In addition, the combined heat and power unit generates heat, which is converted by modern absorption technology to cool the injection moulding machines, so that a continuous 15° water cooling circuit is created, which guarantees a stable production process.
This concept contributes significantly to the reduction of energy consumption. In this way, we make a significant contribution to covering our own energy requirements more gently and thus actively accept the challenges of the energy transition.
The message of ikusto GmbH "Competence and Creativity in Plastics - Made in Germany" includes the development and production of plastic articles in Germany. Despite high occupational safety requirements and higher hourly wages than in low-wage countries, we are able to produce competitively with 45 employees. Our social responsibility is just as important to us as our economic goals for a future-oriented company. We are also involved in promoting young, innovative companies, such as Pazls (www.pazls.de), in order to create opportunities and potential in our region.
