Who we are

Our mission

In everything we do at Recticel, we always try to leverage our outstanding expertise in polymer applications, particularly in – but not limited to – polyurethane. We offer competitive high value added solutions to our customers, hereby creating day-to-day comfort and shared value for our customers, employees, shareholders and all other stakeholders.


Our vision

We aim to be the leading global provider of high value added solutions in all our core markets by supporting key worldwide trends such as environment protection, ageing and increasing population, energy conservation and water management.


Our core values

In 2016, we carefully redefined our Group core values to enable our organisation to fully align its actions and attitudes towards internal and external stakeholders. Today, our core values, which are linked to clearly defined underlying behaviours, can be summarised in five keynotes:

  • We strive for results
  • We innovate to create value
  • We act with respect and integrity
  • We cooperate to win
  • We take ownership and feel accountable

Living the core values

Our core values are much more than just slogans to be visualised and repeated. The exercise of defining a new set of core values would be futile if they were not implemented, shared and lived by all stakeholders, especially our colleagues. Our values are active and ambitious in nature. They help teams and employees to progress, create a positive corporate culture and give our entire organisation a strong stimulus for growth.


We strive for results

  • We think ahead, define goals and ensure that they are well understood
  • We focus, plan, align and cascade objectives
  • We are persistent and assure timely execution
  • We manage by facts, not by opinions
  • We communicate, share the progress accomplished, adapt plans if needed and celebrate success
