  • Putting people first
    In addition to the high technical standard of the products (Innovation awards 1994 and 2006), the Heron Group pays special attention to the development of employees and the promotion of their personality. The Heron Group recognised very early that only staff who can initiate or authorise changes are willing to change themselves. Therefore, it is particularly important to the company that employee development is promoted with highly interesting and often unconventional development tools.

  • Heron Idea Factory
    The Heron Idea Factory serves as a living showroom. The ideal goal is that a customer visits the company with a tangible project, evisages new ideas when there and travels home with these ideas. The building is modular built and can therefore can be modified very flexibly to changes, similar to Heron Group philosophy of their products. Therefore, the customer does not only have a theoretical product or need to view it in an unrelated showroom. They can experience it live and make sense of what they can see. For example, the office furniture in the building has been created with the Robotunits Modular Automation System and the intelligent and autonomous transport robot Servus handles all in-house logistics and part picking. Each department, from intake of goods to output, is connected with the Servus system.
