Philosophy & Guidelines

1. Our pas­sion is for cus­to­mi­zed solu­ti­ons with the hig­hest tech­ni­cal and tech­no­lo­gi­cal standards.

2. As an equip­ment manu­fac­tu­rer with a history rich in tra­di­tion, we are a lea­ding glo­bal pro­du­cer of machine tools for the auto­mo­tive, air and space, rail­way, tool, die and mold-making indus­tries and for machine buil­ding (gene­ral engi­nee­ring) in gene­ral, as well as a spe­cia­list in turn-key systems.

3. We design/ develop/ engi­neer and manu­fac­ture cus­to­mi­zed machine tools for our cus­to­mers under fair con­di­ti­ons and at fair prices.

4. Our pro­ducts and ser­vices offer maxi­mum inno­va­tion, qua­lity and reliability.

5. Our work is effi­ci­ent and goal-ori­en­ted. Relia­bi­lity and time­li­ness are understood.

6. We work in inter­na­tio­nal teams with highly moti­va­ted and highly skil­led employees. Diver­sity is our strength.

7. Our com­mu­ni­ca­tion is open and mutually respectful.

8. We con­si­der envi­ron­men­tal con­cerns in our com­mit­ment to sustainability.

9. We fol­low our gui­de­li­nes by doing the right thing at the right time.

10. We are impro­ving NILES-SIMMONS-HEGENSCHEIDT every day – for both our cus­to­mers and ourselves.


As a glo­bally ope­ra­ting com­pany, it is in our own inte­rest to work and live in sus­tainable sys­tems and to shape them through our par­ti­ci­pa­tion. We share this aspi­ra­tion with our cus­to­mers and busi­ness part­ners. The­re­fore, we also expect our sup­pliers and ser­vice pro­vi­ders to con­sist­ently implement

  • fair busi­ness prac­ti­ces, based on effec­tive com­pli­ance management
  • Mea­su­res to pro­tect the envi­ron­ment and use resour­ces respon­si­bly, and
  • Social gui­de­li­nes that ensure respect for human rights and humane working con­di­ti­ons in particular.

The expec­ted stan­dard is in line with the »Auto­mo­tive Indus­try Gui­ding Princi­ples«, which can be viewed here.
