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.
In 1879 Anton Christ founded a handicraft business in Memmingen. Christ initially produced grain sieves, wire mesh and church grids-
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.
Christ Packing Systems
Foundation of the subsidiary Christ Packing Systems GmbH & Co. KG by taking over the Pietruska company (manufacturer of primary, secondary and special packaging systems) in Memmingen which existed since 1950.
Christ Electronic Systems
Takeover of the final packaging specialist Skinetta Pac-Systems and relocation of the company headquarters to Ottobeuren, Germany.
Extension of the office building
After a construction period of about one year, the existing office building was extended by an office space of 1,850 m². There are also 25 parking spaces in the underground car park.
Christ Akademie / Christ CAR CARE
Foundation of the subsidiary Christ Akademie Aus- und Weiterbildungs-GmbH and the expansion of Christ CAR CARE. The storage area at the Christ CAR CARE plant will be more than doubled to meet the increased requirements of the future.
Expansion of production
Expansion of the production areas for Christ Packing Systems was necessary. The original production and assembly area was no longer sufficient for the pending and future projects. As a result, it was decided to relocate production to a new hall and to expand installation with the original production area.
Planned construction measures for the new logistics centre of the parent company Otto Christ AG.
At the moment Christ has 1,500 professional staff - our employees are the foundation of the company. The "More than CAR WASH!" philosophy is reflected in the development, production, marketing and innovations lived by our employees. Complete solutions with all-round service are offered and implemented by our employees and are continually improved. A broad, globally active distribution network strengthens our presence abroad and takes care of the needs of our highly valued customers. We are more than CAR WASH.
The environment is important to us! For this reason, we are committed to reducing waste, sewage and emissions from our facilities, and to continuously measuring and monitoring the energy consumption, energy use and energy efficiency of our processes and activities in order to plan and implement energy-saving measures.
We are a family business that has built up various mainstays over the last few years and focuses on innovative and modern products that are successfully distributed internationally. The Christ group of companies consists of 8 subsidiaries and 9 sales subsidiaries which take care of the needs of the customers.
Career and future opportunities arise from the diverse fields of application that the group of companies has to offer. Due to the different mainstays of our production companies, different production processes are required, which bring different work requirements to the employees. With the domains created, there is something for everyone that meets their expectations and interests.
