We believe in the power of collaboration—with our colleagues, with our customers, and with our partners. We share our knowledge and ideas and listen to customers. It leads to better decisions and lasting trust.


We care about the work that scientists do and the progress they achieve. It makes us strive towards excellence in the characterization of new materials and chemicals and in the development of a more rational use of energy.


We nurture an environment where people can explore possibilities, test new ideas and take measured risks—in science, in product development and in developing new business.
