To justify the trust others put in us and in GEA, we must live and defend our principles – among our customers, suppliers, competitors, shareholders, our own employees and with the authorities and communities in which we operate. We count on our workforce to protect GEA’s good reputation. – Stefan Klebert, CEO, GEA
