The Provexa Movie
At Provexa, humanism is the foundation of leadership
“If we go back 40 years, employees were often seen as cogs in a large machinery. The focus was on the organization, business plans and budgeting. Since then, quality, delivery reliability and productivity have increased significantly, not least as a result of investments in Lean and new technology such as automation, robotization and digitization. From the debate one can be led to believe that employees are diminishing in importance. I don’t think that’s the case. Somewhere in the chain there are, and always have been, people. Their actions make a difference and create results. Provexa is living proof of that.”
– Anders Hultmark
CEO of Provexa Ytbehandling AB
We are surface treatment experts. Not philosophers.
At the core, we simply want to do a good job and have a clear conscience when we go home after work. But nothing is actually that simple.
A large organisation needs goals and purpose. Co-workers must feel participation and pride. Clients must feel potential, and the society must feel trust. This demands an idea or a vision, so that the company and the brand stay on course.
This is how we express our vision: “We dream about a sustainable world, where our contribution is world-leading surface technology.”
The consensus today is that sustainability is the only way forward
Serious companies are no longer looking for alternatives to green productions. An increasing number of companies say that if you can’t do it sustainably, it’s not worth doing. In this context, modern surface technology matters.
It’s not just about offering a process that reduces emissions and hazardous chemicals. But the durability of the product itself is as important as an environmental benefit: the correct surface technology increases the life span of everything.
Provexa has modernized its production plant to comply with recent directives and regulations. In many areas, we are doing better than regulations’ demands. We filter air and water, we have reduced electric power consumption by 20% while increasing revenue by 50%. We do our part, but we must emphasize that we make the biggest environmental benefits together with our customers.
