Christ corporate policy

Our corporate policy on health, safety, quality, environmental protection and energy management

Everyone who works for us is responsible for a successful implementation of the company policy. A good performance in these areas is a decisive prerequisite for the success of our company. 

Our aims can be formulated clearly and simply: no accidents, no damage to people and property, highest quality awareness, no impairment of the environment and the continuous reduction of energy consumption and the associated CO2 emissions.


To this end we have committed ourselves:

  • to create safe and healthy working conditions.
  • to eliminate accidents and environmental incidents.
  • to reduce waste, sewage and emissions from our plants.
  • to continuously measure and monitor the energy consumption, energy use and energy efficiency of our processes and activities in order to plan and implement energy-saving measures.
  • to produce quality products that can be used by our customers without risk.
  • to regularly assess the security risks we face and ensure that they are professionally managed.
  • to consult with our customers, neighbours and public interest groups, to listen to them and respond openly to their concerns.
  • to set goals and to provide detailed information on our performances.
  • to provide the necessary resources and information to achieve our operational and strategic goals.
  • to work together with our employees, partners, suppliers, competitors and legislative authorities to improve our goals.
  • to honour those who help us to improve our corporate goals.


With this self-commitment, we commit ourselves to comply with the laws and regulations of the countries in which we operate.

    Franz Christ builds the first car wash next to his parents' business in Dickenreiserweg. This was followed by an one-off production which formed the basis of the current production. The first wash tunnel is produced in 1968. The increase in motorization means that demand is increasing more and more.
