In order to be in a good position in future, Piepenbrock focuses its attention on optimum processes and efficient structures. The readiness to change is an important prerequisite in order to remain competitive in the long-term.
In order to increase the efficiency of internal work routines, Piepenbrock created the "Business control and processes" department in 2012. An important area is the optimisation of its own service chain. The new department is made up of staff from controlling, system administration and process organisation. It is designed to facilitate greater transparency in the service processes in order to identify which operational areas are in need of optimisation. Furthermore, it accompanies change processes, establishes project-wide control mechanisms and puts together projects that run parallel to various areas of business.
Half of the paper consumption in Germany is attributable to printing, press and office products. In order to reduce the amount with lasting effect, Piepenbrock has introduced various measures. Among these are converting administrative processes to digital technologies and sensitising staff so that they treat their resources more economically.
In the last two years, the Piepenbrock Group has launched numerous sustainable real estate projects. Apart from the company's head office in Osnabruck, building measures were carried out in Laatzen, Hanau, Berlin and Altendorf.
