Hydraulic Partner for Innovative Product Ideas
The ability to come up with ideas and turn them into reality that is what sets us humans apart from all other creatures on this planet. TRIES in Ehingen has been developing and producing hydraulic elements since 1964. Back then, just as today, resourceful engineers create well-engineered, functional products to the highest technological standards. Innovative technologies, reliable quality as well as partnership and collaboration with our customers allow us to produce the most sophisticated creative solutions. Our development engineers always strive for more and never settle for the second-best solution. This is also part of the TRIES company philosophy. We adopt this attitude when supporting and advising customers, and we encourage our employees and trainees to think in the same way. This allowed us to become one of the leading suppliers of hydraulic components. A range of very interesting, standard solutions solves many of our customers’ hydraulic problems immediately. Various valves featuring different designs and different functions, hydraulic units with hydraulic or electrical control, control units made of aluminium, cast and steel depending on the specifications, rotary distributors, joysticks (electrical and hydraulic) as well as high-performance compact cylinders available in several sizes can all be supplied in a short-term.
Our tools are know-how and high-tech. This allows us to produce top-quality, well-engineered products for individual problem solutions, as well in small-series production, in medium-sized batches as in large-scale production. Uncompromising quality can only be achieved through the latest technologies and state-of-the-art production machinery. Quality assurance is our top priority. Superior to avoid malfunction rather than make troubleshooting. We have an effective control system that immediately picks out errors before they can create, even theoretical damage.
Strictly geared usage and ecology are no contradiction for us
Just because a product is developed by excellent engineers, it is not necessarily guarantee of the success of the product. An important requirement for success is the ability to recognise customers needs and problems. Only focussing strictly on customer requests and requirements makes it possible to generate product quality. On the one hand, quality relates to the performance of the product, its secure functionality and reliability, and on the other hand it relates to reliable supply and service.
At TRIES, environmentally-friendly engineering starts in the minds of the development engineers, who are used to do things in a solid and accurate way, and also looking at all designs from an ecological point of view. This way, little by little, the bigger perfect picture emerges from the finer details and the large gap between usage and ecology is bridged.
Nature and the duty to protect it?
Since environmental protection is an important part of our company policy and philosophy, it is important that there is a continuous process to reduce the unavoidable effects on the environment caused by production of goods, and at the same time this should be linked to seeking out the best possible quality. Our environmental management system proves that this is the case: the successful ISO 9001 certified quality management system has been integrated in the environmental system since 1997. It is geared towards the Community Eco-Management and Audit Scheme and ISO 14001. Together, these two are aimed at continual improvement of the environmental performance and also allow for quality improvement measures to be implemented at the same time. The certified management systems are continually developed and optimised through control and correction measures. Preventative environmental protection in harmony with man, machine and nature - we see that as our responsibility and duty. We are confident that quality orientation and environmental protection will lead to success for our employees and products.
The observation of standards, guidelines and laws form the bases and represent the minimum goal. Quality orientation and environmental protection thus also ensure future protection of our company.
The focus is on man, and a future worth living?
There is no doubt that a healthy environment is an important requirement for high-quality lives in the future and the health of future generations. In dealing with this challenge, it is not just environmental policy that is important. Bare profit-making and a lack of environmental awareness will not only lead to irreparable environmental damage but also serious economic damage.
Therefore, environmentally-friendly operation has always been an important part of the company policy at TRIES. Another, just as important part is the social responsibility with regard to employees and their families. Having a meaningful role within a company creates satisfaction. And recognition can be obtained in various ways, including fair pay, the offer of training and development for qualifications and promotions. That is what TRIES offers its employees.
The results of our efforts can also be seen from the outside, a really good working atmosphere - like a big family is not just a cliché. This has positive results such as highly motivated employees, a low turnover of staff, high productivity and last but not least, very low levels of sick days taken compared to Germany as a whole. TRIES staff bring this philosophy to life. You can feel it in the way they work, in the professional communication and in the willingness to take responsibility beyond their own working area.
