Our industry requires that we constantly adapt to changing times, applying innovative ideas and technologies to help meet customer needs and reduce costs. That is why we encourage you to challenge the status quo and voice your opinions, even if they are new and different. We believe each of our employees is an expert in his or her field and best positioned to take the necessary actions to improve our service to our customers and optimise our operations. Even more importantly, safety is our highest priority and all Svitzer employees have the authority and the obligation to stop any operation they do not find safe.

Strong Team

In Svitzer we believe in individual performance within highly professional teams supported by our distinct values. Teamwork in Svitzer means respect, dedication, and the idea that we can achieve more when we all pull together. We believe that good Svitzer leaders serve by example and inspire others, and that the best indication of strong leadership is the success of the team.


In Svitzer we reward both the results achieved as well as how the results were achieved, never compromising our employee safety or company values. Our annual people performance process ensures that you receive ongoing feedback on your performance – and demonstrates how you can continue to develop your skills.
