Our history

From the bell wire to the fibre optic cable

Since the company was set up in 1945 Telegärtner has seen steady growth and has continually expanded its range in response to market demands.

The company is now one of the top addresses for coaxial connectors, network components, plastic injection mouldings, industrial electronics and cable assembly. But this remarkable development was only possible because the demands of the traditional company have not changed in all these years:"Telegärtner does not just want good quality. Telegärtner wants to be better and supply our customers with excellent solutions with which they can work successfully."

Our quality and environmental policy

As a technologically leading and innovation-driven company, Telegärtner Karl Gärtner GmbH develops and manufactures products which are used all over the world in many different industries and set new standards there. In order to also maintain its pioneering role in future, the company is primarily focusing on compliance with high quality standards and consistent environmental protection.

 

Our employees clearly demonstrate that topics relating to quality and the environment are more than just vague theory at Telegärtner. They believe that their task is not just to continuously improve quality and environmental performance in economic terms, but more as an obligation which they are willing to fulfil – both at our head office and in our subsidiaries. Telegärtner Karl Gärtner GmbH has therefore consciously decided to place core technologies in specialised subsidiaries which manufacture components, sub-assemblies or end products.

Quality policy

Quality is our obligation


In order to both satisfy and exceed our customers' expectations, and therefore comply with all legal and other requirements, quality awareness at Telegärtner Karl Gärtner GmbH starts at the management level and includes all employees.

Customer satisfaction is our goal

In order to satisfy the high expectations for our products, our quality management system is subjected to continuous and active improvement. This enables us to increase our value-added while also offering our customers high-quality products.

 

Improvement is our objective

In order to promote and increase quality awareness among our employees, we organise our work processes as clearly as possible based on the principle of "Preventing defects is better than remedying them". Our quality management system follows a zero defect strategy and ensures that work processes are improved continuously.

 

Partnership is our promise

Long-term collaborative relationships: this is what we offer our suppliers and what we expect from them. In order to ensure reproducible product quality, our suppliers must satisfy the same quality standards as we do.

 

Environmental policy

We are committed to environmental protection

Protection of the environment is more than just a corporate task at Telegärtner Karl Gärtner GmbH. Rather, it is an obligation to our customers, our fellow human beings and future generations. Environmental protection is therefore an important corporate goal for our company.

 

The environmental management system is our tool

Thanks to the active cooperation of our employees and through our environmental management system in which current changes, expectations and needs in our company environment are considered, we actively help to conserve resources and minimise environmental pollution. In addition, a focus group has been formed to further develop and advance the approaches for continuous improvement of the environmental management system in regular meetings.
We comply with all legal regulations relating to our company and use the best available and economically feasible technologies. Sustainable resource consumption is supported through the implementation of regular energy audits according to DIN EN 16247-1. Energy consumption is also reviewed continuously in our analysis of environmental aspects and is kept at a low level. We regard digitalisation as an opportunity to make our processes more sustainable, more resource-friendly and more efficient.


 

Environmental awareness is our objective

From the purchase of our raw materials and consumables, and development, design and production through to packing and delivery of our products, we always follow ecological criteria and ensure that environmentally-friendly and recyclable materials are used. We favour suppliers who also attach great importance to environmental protection. Since 2010, we have also been generating some of our energy needs at our headquarters by means of a photovoltaic system and also, since the completion of the extension work in 2016, through a combined heat and power plant. Telegärtner Karl Gärtner GmbH is therefore actively contributing towards environmentally-friendly and resource-conserving production.

WEEE-Directive

The Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) in Germany contains several requirements concerning the handling of electric and electronic devices as waste. In the following paragraphs, we list the most important requirements for you.

 

Separated recycling of "old devices"

Electric and electronic devices that have become waste are called old devices. Owners of such old devices have to bring these to recycling facilities, where these are handled and recorded separately from urban solid waste. Old devices must not end up in the household refuse. In fact they have to be collected in special collecting and recycling systems.

 

Possibility for disposal of "old devices"

Owners of old devices from private households can dispose these at the public waste disposal authorities or bring them to producer or seller related disposal locations. You can find these disposal locations online

 

If possible, electric and electronic equipment has to be disposed separately from built-in batteries and / or accumulators.

 

Old devices often contain private data, especially appliances from data processing and communication equipment, as smartphones or hard discs. In your own interest, please arrange to eliminate all personal and private data from your disposed equipment.

 

As a producer in terms of the German ElektroG we are registered with the German registration authority Stiftung Elektro-Altgeräte-Register (Benno-Strauß-Str. 1, 90763 Fürth), having been granted the following WEEE registration number:

 

WEEE-Reg.-Nr. DE 76541091

Meaning of the symbol "crossed out waste container"

The labelled symbol showing the "crossed out waste container“ on electric and electronic equipment indicates that the concerning equipment has to be disposed separately from urban solid waste.

 

Social engagement

Social responsibility and social commitment are of great importance to Telegärtner. This is because we are of the opinion that doing good connects people. That is why we, together with our employees, are involved in various social projects. It is important to us that we can help where help is needed at both a global and local level.

 

Matching Gifts

Doubling of employee donations

We are proud that our employees also want to do something good on a personal level. This is why we support them and double their donations using company money. For example, over the course of the past football World Cup, employees requested that an internal Telegärtner betting game be set up. 75% of the stakes went to the children’s and youth hospice Regenbogenland. Here, too, the donation was doubled by the Telegärtner donation fund.

Regional Involvement

Support for institutions in the region

Telegärtner is actively involved in regional projects and specifically supports kindergarten projects in Steinenbronn to promote early childhood education. The institutions have been given financial support e.g. to purchase an explorer’s room and motor skills-focused play areas.

Donation campaign

"Germany rounds up"

With the donation campaign “Germany rounds up”, we offer our employees the opportunity to contribute to combating child poverty in Germany. To this end, our employees inform us of their wish to donate in the form of a salary donation. Telegärtner will then manage the administration and the associated costs amounting to 25% of the donation sum.

 

WWF project

"Stop the plastic flood"

The topic of sustainability plays an important role for us and the protection of nature is very dear to our hearts. Telegärtner therefore wants to contribute to the fight against marine pollution and supports the WWF project “Stop the plastic flood”.

 

The Telegärtner wish tree

Particularly at Christmas, Telegärtner wants to think about those who are not able to fulfil their dreams when they want to.

This is why we’ll once again be putting up a wish tree at our company headquarters this year. In this way, our staff and management team will be able to put a smile on the faces of 100 children and teenagers from disadvantaged families by making their deepest wishes come true.
