What we hold on to

Our vision

Our vision

    We are and want to continue to be experts for overvoltages. We want to continuously improve our position, our know-how, our quality and expertise for the benefit of our customers.


    We look for the best possible solutions, we innovate and modernise. We digitise and automate to meet the high quality of our products, and we continue to invest in equipment and people.


    We attract and develop talented people, we pass on our values and support them in their development, we listen to their ideas and let them take responsibility. We create a relaxed and inspiring working environment.


    Innovations are essential - they improve the lives of our customers, improve the life in our company, generate profit and allow us to create new innovations. But innovation is all about people.

What we appreciate

Our values


    We protect people's property and lives. That is why quality is important to us in all areas. We uphold standards, plans and agreements – and when they are at risk, we say so loudly and immediately.


    We create and grow together. We try untrodden paths and work on ourselves. We can extract value from good ideas and thus win over the competition.


    We are humans, not machines. We develop relationships to work as a team. We appreciate a job well done. When something doesn't work for us, we ask for support and look for a solution together.


    Each of us is responsible for the common results. The way we make it, the way we have it. We actively seek opportunities and do not shy away from solving problems. No one else will do it for us.

How we live

Team life

Here at SALTEK, we live actively and there is never a dull moment with us. We are building a great team ourselves. We don't want to be united only by work, but also by shared experiences. Over time, we have built several traditional events that we organize every year. And because we enjoy joint events, we have created our own WE for US program, through which we enjoy a variety of cultural, social and sports events devised by our colleagues for other employees.
