We know that successful collaboration is based on respectful interaction. That is the only way to make our customers feel comfortable with us in the long run. To make this work, we put our faith in a spirit of partnership, and straightforward cooperation on equal terms.
There are numerous and, above all, good reasons for the growing success of Waldeck: specializing in the healthcare market and always close to the customer, this middle-sized family business managed by Wilhelm Wahlig is in particular characterized by its personal commitment, its great affinity for changing market requirements and its proverbial high quality and soundness.
Meeting the challenges of our time and those of the market has also been the top priority of our company management.
According to Mr Wahlig it proves beneficial that Waldeck is not one of the really great service providers in the healthcare sector. In this way, he says, the company is able to respond to customer requests quickly and flexibly at all times. He is convinced that short communication channels, maximum flexibility with regard to the processing of orders as well as modular packages tailored to the customers’ individual needs are guarantees for a high degree of customer satisfaction and continually growing demand.
With his proverbial preference for IT-optimized, lean processes in the company, Mr. Wahlig wants to achieve the objective of ensuring transparency along the entire value chain, in order to provide customers with a trustworthy basis for performing their business transactions. This produces the fine result of long-standing customer relationships that are built on a safe and solid foundation.
“We meet challenges with our expertise, a good portion of passion, and plenty of inventiveness,” as the boss says. “Our highly qualified employees and a network of valuable partnerships that has developed over decades make it possible for us to continue our tradition-steeped history of success while making a profit”.
