Dräger is Technology for Life. Every day, we live up to that responsibility by putting all of our passion, knowledge and experience into improving lives with outstanding and innovative technology that puts life first. We dedicate our efforts to those who depend on our technology the world over, to the environment, and to a better future.
“Our work has a deeper meaning: We are dedicated to turning technology into “Technology for Life”. This goal drives us to achieve our best. And that's something to be proud of.”
We build on our strengths. They are our solid foundation.
A family-run company
“Lever Schaden as Schimp”—better a loss than a disgrace—is the guiding principle formulated in Low German by the mother of our company founder. It guides the company to this day and aptly sums up Dräger’s sustainability-oriented strategy: we would rather lose money than risk the company’s good reputation and the trust that people place in it. That remains our guiding principle and commitment, especially in our dealings with customers, for whom we want to be the first choice. We all take responsibility every day—for the quality of our products, which protect, support, and save lives. For our environment, so that future generations will be able to live well. For our employees, who we support, and whose safety we ensure, just as we ensure the safety of our customers. And for society, which we want to serve.
“As a family-run company, we have one goal above all: successful longevity. For me, this means that one day, when the time is right, I would like to pass the company on to my successors in an even better state. Everything we do, we do with passion—and we do it for people’s lives!”
Our social commitment worldwide
Our social commitment contributes to greater security and health around the world. We would like to make life a little bit better every day—namely beyond our technology. This is why we are involved with different causes, to which we make donations in cash and in kind. Dräger is committed to social projects and activities around the world. Our medical and safety products give us the opportunity to help people in need, reduce suffering and make rescue workers’ jobs easier. Dräger predominantly supports projects with a focus on education and social causes. We also provide humanitarian aid to crisis areas and help our employees to get involved with social causes themselves. We place special value on sustainability. Ideally, the projects are connected to our business activities and our guiding philosophy, “Technology for Life”.
