6 swisspor Group | The swisspor values The swisspor values keep us moving forward, day in, day out Many ingredients go into the swisspor Group's recipe for success. Of these, the most important are our values. For more than four decades our values have been our constant starting point. Our clear sense of identity makes us a trustworthy partner and provides us with an unmistake­ able face. We take responsibility towards society and our environment in a sustainable way by using our resources carefully and adding value. Our ambition is to strive constantly for progress and continuous development. All this results in a first-class, indispensable product. Our everyday actions are guided by these principles. Our values charac­ terise our strategy, both in Switzerland and in Europe. Our customers also reap the benefit of this: they can count on products and services that are above average. Both now and in the future.

swisspor Group | The swisspor values 7 Identity Our roots are in Switzerland. Our identity is shaped by Swiss values. They make us what we are. Our thinking and our actions are led by modesty, conscientiousness and attention to detail. We are spurred on time and time again by the awareness that extraordinary achievements only become possible through an above-average degree of commitment. We do not view our “Swissness” as a product quality. We view our “Swissness” as our mindset. We consistently adhere to this mindset, and it has helped us over the last decades to turn into a reliable force. Furthermore, our home provides us with outstanding framework conditions for working successfully and progressively. We make the most of these conditions as a fertile breeding ground for functionally impressive innovations.

8 swisspor Group | The swisspor values Responsibility To us, it stands to reason that resources need to be used sparingly. We consistently design our products and solutions such that they also provide long-term benefits in terms of environmental protection. In this regard we look well beyond our production processes. We take our responsibility as a supplier seriously: the fleet of vehicles we use for transporting our products meets the highest energy efficiency standards. For the benefit of the environment we keep transportation distances to the minimum. And we never cease developing ourselves, our products and our processes so that we can continue protecting the environment in years to come.

swisspor Group | The swisspor values 9 Ambition We always want to offer our customers the perfect solution. With great engineering expertise and a highly developed sense of conscientiousness we provide added value of Swiss quality. Ambition means the will to improve constantly and to never let up searching for improvements in our future endeavours. And that is exactly what we have been doing zealously for many long years. We are quite certain that only a willingness to initiate changes can open up genuine prospects for the future. We are pursuing a vision. Namely, the challenge of coming up with an all-round product to produce a building shell that works in a sustainable way. Watchfulness and a keen eye for future deve­ l­ op­ ments enable us to recognise trends at an early stage and to orient our corporate thinking and actions accordingly. That is how we create room for innovations. That is how we take advantage of sustainable growth potential. And that is how we create a successful future.

14 swisspor Group | You and the swisspor Group You and the swisspor Group – a strong team With the fierce competition that exists today, no one can any longer afford to offer only average service or tolerate avoidable idle time. Our customers appreciate our professionalism, delivery reliability, quality and accessibility. This is why people authorised to make decisions can be contacted directly at all times at the swiss­ por Group. We see this as a prere­ quisite for an efficient working relationship. We do not believe in leaving our customers' satisfaction to chance. We take the experience and expectations of our partners extremely seriously. And that's not all: you act as our barometer and also spur us on. Professionalism Day in, day out, we aspire to communicate with our partners on equal terms. We succeed in this thanks to our know-how, constant ongoing development and willingness to enter into dialogue. This is the only way for us to identify and analyse market requirements and meet our customers' needs accordingly. The customer and their project are always the first priority. Successful outcome to a construction project is most important to us. In this field we know precisely where our strengths are. And we put our strengths together, turning them into core skills. This makes us a proven quality partner for the entire building shell. Quality As a group of companies with Swiss roots we feel obliged to strive for highest quality. After a painstaking development process, our products then undergo various stringent test procedures. That is how we can be confident that the pro­ ducts we offer are always of best quality. We also make every effort to constantly continue developing and improving our existing solutions for building shells. We are quick to identify new possibilities and exploit them in order to keep on coming up with new premium products for the market. Thanks to our close working partnership with professionals and partners we don't settle for compromise. The term “quality”, after all, means a lot more to us than a mere word. To us it is no less than a commitment. This is the only way for us to reach a position of creating Swiss added value for building shells. Delivery reliability Time is a scarce and therefore valuable resource in the construction industry. Careful coordination of separate processes therefore brings significant advantages and greatly enhances the efficiency of construction projects. Idle time and unnecessary stock levels are to be avoided. The ability to always supply our customers with the required material in the right place and at the right time makes the swisspor Group a supplier that can be relied on at all times. The four subsidiaries swisspor, swisswindows, Eternit (Schweiz) AG and Eternit-Werke Ludwig Hatschek AG (Vöckla­ bruck, Austria) deliver on a “just-in-time” basis, ensure that their scheduling is carried out transparently, and communicate directly with all involved parties. Thanks to our concentrated network of production sites we can guarantee maximum flexibility and delivery reliability. Our customers can therefore always access the right product – whenever and wherever they may need it. Availability At critical moments, each individual customer becomes our most important one. Quite rightly, our customers insist that we offer maximum flexibility and seamless availability. Our technical specialists are available for customers to speak to at any time. This ensures that all issues are dealt with immediately and allows us to maintain a close relationship with our partners. Advisers are assigned permanently, which means that they have a sound understanding of the customer, the project and the portfolios entrusted to them; as a result they are able to act quickly and authoritatively. This close relationship with our customers enables us to meet their needs at all times and provide them with the support of a dependable partner. The support of a strong group of companies.
