At a time when farming is undergoing constant change, this company profile provides a clear indication of KWS’ forward-looking position as an independent seed company. KWS principles provide a framework and a living “signpost” for our daily work.
We create a foundation for the farmer’s success
With our quality seed, we offer farmers a crucial means of production for more than 150 years – a must for successful farming. Our customer relationships are characterized by expertise, continuity and dialog.
We make better seed
Our seed is precisely tailored to our customers’ needs and demands. We will continue to steadily improve the varieties and the technical quality of our seeds. Plant breeding means to us: Understanding and tapping into the natural processes of life.
Our goals are innovative, our work is transparent
Research & Development form the core competence of KWS. Every year we invest a portion of our earnings – considerably more than the industry average – in research and development. Transparency in our actions and openness in our two-way communications are the central features of our dealings with each other, with ourcustomers and with the public.
Our actions are independent, co-operative and return-oriented
Cooperation with reliable partners is as important to us as our own independence that enables us working fast and flexible. Strong profitability is both the precondition and the objective. Our co-operation is always governed by mutual respect of each other’s cultures and corporate philosophies.
We like working for KWS
The success and strength of KWS is built on the ideas and performance of each and every employee. Personal initiative and independent action are as self-evident for us as a sense of personal responsibility and open-mindedness.
Responsibility toward humankind and nature
We invest in the continued development of in-house measures to protect the †environment and ensure quality. We wish our daily actions to be measured by the fact that, at all levels within the company, they are founded on a sense of responsibility toward humankind and nature.
Seeding the future – since 1856
