Summary of RPC Bramlage Division
As one of 7 divisions of the RPC Group, we are an international company with a decentralised organisational structure. This allows us to maintain local presences and close relationships with our customers while taking advantage of our extensive global support network. Every day, we unite our multinational experience with the local roots of our team members. This is the basis for our expertise in all the markets and sectors in which we operate, allowing us to develop high-quality, innovative, and sustainable plastic packaging solutions that fully meet (and often surpass) client requirements.
Our core values are the basis for everything we do, and who we choose to be - as professionals, as community members, and as citizens of the only planet we have. Within specific ethical parameters, our commitment to satisfying customer needs and our vast expertise create value for everyone involved in our projects, including customers, partners, team members, and shareholders. The following goals are always of primary concern to us:
- To be the undisputed leader in all the markets in which we operate
- To encourage young talent to join our organisation and grow
- To add genuine value to the lives of everyone connected to us
- To create a sustainable pathway throughout the value chain
- To respect the needs of the environment and our community
RPC Bramlage Division is dedicated to growth and expansion, but that doesn’t mean we’re willing to progress at any cost. We work within a company-wide ethical framework that allows us to interact with each meaningfully, giving our best not only to the firm but to our community. Our team members are our greatest asset, so we’re careful to be of benefit to the society in which we operate. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives at Bramlage range from supporting our regional handball team to participating in local charity events.
