Our Corporate Philosophy: Foundation of success and guidance for the future

For Gebr. Heinemann – a globally active, family-run business – a distinctive culture of values forms the basis for effective working relationships rooted in trust. Gebr. Heinemann employs 6,000 people around the world; the corporate philosophy serves as a guide, and as the foundation of success for their shared efforts.

It not only lays out the principles of cooperation and work practices, it also defines the mission and vision of Gebr. Heinemann. In a constantly evolving market environment, Gebr. Heinemann aims to be the first choice on the travel retail market by virtue of the vitality and long-term outlook of an independent family-run company. The result is a clear framework of reference that enables us to create the conditions for preserving our identity, enacting our values and, above all, establishing long-term partnerships based on trust with our employees, customers, suppliers and other market players. In short, we deal with our market participants in the same way we treat each other. The trading firm therefore supports customer journeys with the best multi-channel offers. Service and the shopper experience are continually enhanced, driving customer-related developments with innovative services spanning all sales channels.  

Our Vision 

The Heinemann Family. First Choice in Travel Retail. Worldwide.

Our Mission

We live and breathe service, and we create value in an inspiring and emotional way.

Our Principles

The first principle is We are one family. Gebr. Heinemann is a family-run company, and we want to bring that family feel into the workplace. We are guided by family
values, we support and respect one another and we enjoy working with each other.

We lead through trust is the second principle. This principle not only applies to the managers, but also to the way each individual works and their basic attitudes. We are reliable, open, honest and we take responsibility for our actions. Trust must always be based on give and take.

Our successful development as a company over the years is down to the fact that we have always stuck to our course persistently, even when times were tough. Our goals are clear, and we understand that when you stop trying to get better, you stop being good. With this in mind, guiding principle number three in our mission is: We persevere.

We delight our customers is the fourth principle. This applies to our clients in both the retail and distribution areas. The principle implies that we are consistently personally committed to meeting customer demands, delivering unrivalled service and establishing long-term relationships.
