Empowered by FRIWO

Our responsibility

Join us as we consider that responsibility means

As an international company, we employ some 2,000 employees and consider ourselves responsible for them and their families. Finding the right work-life balance is of paramount importance at FRIWO. Our focus on this ensures that we and our customers are served by a highly motivated and committed workforce.

Continuous innovation is a way for us to break new ground when it comes to sustainability. Optimizing the use of resources in the manufacture of our products is key for this. At the same time, we continuously reduce the amount of energy our devices consume and involve our products in sustainable markets such as electromobility. To this end, we maintain and cultivate an open knowledge exchange network and learn from one another and together every day.

Through our ecological, economic, and social commitment, we counted as one of only eight companies in the German electrical industry to receive an award from Focus Money magazine in 2019 in the “Germany’s Most Valuable Companies” category.
