Our Values

There’s a lot of Knauf in me. Then again, there’s a lot of me in Knauf, too.

It is the essence of the core Knauf values that makes us unique. They are a part of every single Knauf employee. Every single decision. Every action. All around the world. Our blue thumbprint symbolises these values. Values not only of the individual, but of the company as a whole. 24 hours a day. 7 days a week. 365 days a year. They represent our commitment to our customers and to our communities.

They are the key to our success: every moment of every day. Unique to Knauf, our values have been the foundation of our success over the last 80 years, and
they will continue to drive our success in the future.I-Am-Knauf.png
