Our Values

At the heart of our company culture are the values we share, giving the success of our company a common, solid basis. These values – laid out already in our predecessor companies and developed further - are fundamental to all our doing and have a profound impact on all other areas of our business, like a house that cannot rest safely without reliable foundations.  

In this sense, the basis of everything is the value of Collaboration going together with team spirit and respect, openness, transparency and trust, i.e. overcoming organisational lines and taking on challenges as one team. Based on this foundation HENSOLDT rests on three pillars: Excellence, Ownership and Innovation. Bearing the roof of the entire building is Entrepreneurship.
