Our Value Drivers
1. Customer orientation
Campine strives to offer significant higher product efficiency through innovative formulations and in-depth understanding of our customers’ operational and commercial challenges.
To realise this, we establish relationships between our organization and our customers in all relevant disciplines to follow up both the actual products and the processes that we co-develop with our customers.
We aim at having all major players in our selected target markets in our portfolio.
2. Shareholders value
We are committed to create a long term shareholder value and invest in our company to guarantee our future profitability and financial independency.
We report and manage in accordance with IFRS and Belgian corporate governance code.
We balance capital needs by a careful allocation over investments, inventory, dividend and financing and monitor costs by our budgeting system.
Our turnover – and hence profitability – can be effected by the material flow and related cash flow of our raw materials, products in process and end-products. Therefore we plan and follow up closely material requirements, fluctuating prices, debtors and sourcing.
3. Employee dedication
We develop our organisation to overall professionalism and emphasize on a proactive and service oriented attitude.
Internal training further develops skills and competences such as communication, customer orientation, zero-default production and process improvement techniques.
By offering job-security we create a stable social climate and enjoy positive working relations.
4. Environmental commitment
Our safety, health and environment are very important to us. We carefully monitor our impact on environment and health in our neighbourhood by accurate overall process controls and continuously improve dust emissions, water purification and site infrastructure.
We adopt the best available technology and procedures in order to anticipate on future regulations and base our operations on lean management and total quality.
We consider REACH as an opportunity to better position our product portfolio and our professional approach to traceability and product hazard control.
Through our partnerships with Eurométaux, Agoria, LDAI, I2A we are promoting worldwide the safe use of our products based on the EU risk assessment and the REACH regulation.
The company has an environmental policy in which it undertakes to clean up soil contamination upon decision of construction of new installations on its site.
We believe that product and process innovation was the key to our past success and still actively engage in innovation projects.
These projects are focusing on efficiency increases, process improvements or specific customer-related applications.
Whenever possible we innovate via co-development projects involving our customers.
6. Process control
We invest systematically in improving our process knowledge and proficiency. The introduction of statistical process control (SPC) and the implementation of a new maintenance concept allowed us to improve our overall productivity.
The quality and consistency of our products has a significant impact on our customers’ products, even when the quantity of our product as total percentage of ingredients used is rather limited.
The skills and competences of our operators to generate a maximal output volume within performance and quality standards is the main competitive advantage of Campine.
This process starts with purchasing the right mix of raw materials and ends with a stringent quality control of end-products.
The increasing demand for premium and speciality products results in the development of small-batch production processes allowing focusing on specific properties of the required product.
