Employee Perspectives

I believe that nobody works for so long in the same company unless it is a very special place. Chem-Trend is this place for me. I feel deeply proud of being part of an engaged team whose values and principles I am pleased to be committed to. Also I am very pleased to know that our company, besides the focus on safety, environment, and employees, among others, that there is a preoccupation in Social Projects. In Brazil we have an important project that helps a shelter called "Children's House". This institution attends to children, young adults and the community. It is very gratifying to help those who need; Chem-Trend helps us be involved with the community and enables us to contribute for a better future.

I enjoy working with Chem-Trend, nearly 25 years. We have a corporate culture with family style. I am proud to work for Chem-Trend; we have the best of Freudenberg training. The employee development available gives one the opportunity to continually support the mission and goals of our company. Our company provides many opportunities, whether developing our careers or our personal family life. With the Scholarship Program, the Tanner Youth Exchange or our Community Garden, Chem-Trend is the place to be.

When I first interviewed for a job at Chem-Trend, there were two things that really impressed me. First, Chem-Trend ran its business almost exactly how I had learned the best companies operate when I was getting my Business Master’s degree (MBA). Second, and probably most important, I met dozens of people that had worked for Chem-Trend for 10 or more years. There were even people who had worked here for over 20 years and some of them had never worked anywhere else. Since that time, I have learned why: Chem-Trend takes care of its employees and really cares about them.

A successful business that treats its employees well? That's a rare and powerful combination and it's why I am still working here after 14 years.

I like working for Chem-Trend as this allows me to work on a global base. The global challenges in business and intercultural cooperation enrich my daily life. The business model of Chem-Trend to focus on market needs and deliver solutions that are needed together with our global customer base creates a mix of innovation and added value technology. Chem-Trend is embedded into the FCS and further into the Freudenberg Group which allows all of us to think and interact as well between different industries and markets. This is exciting and important as well as break through innovations are usually developed in the overlap of different industries. We are exchanging our ideas and views in the thermoplastic global team at eye level rather than from a hierarchical point of view which creates an atmosphere of empowerment.
