Vision and Mission statement as the basis for a successful future

The COLOP Vision

We strive for the highest possible level of customer satisfaction by offering the most extensive range of self-inking stamps and products within the marking industry - in the world.

The COLOP Mission

By achieving an optimal level of quality in everything that we do, both in technical areas as well as on a personal level, we are able to continually increase customer satisfaction.

By using the best methods and technologies, we are able to develop the most innovative, the most cost-effective “high quality products” on the market and to ensure flexibility and short delivery times!

We meet the expectations of our customers in a profitable manner. In doing so, we aim to take into account the regulations and laws for preserving our environment. Due to our success, we are able to offer our employees greater opportunities for personal development.


Prominent quality

COLOP's quality management system is already certified according to ISO 9001 for several years. This ensures that products and services are subjected to regulated quality criteria. The certification according to ISO 14001 that had been successfully 2008, confirms that COLOP possesses a functioning and fully integrated ENVIRONMENTAL SYSTEM.


Innovation as the basis for permanent development

Within  COLOP, “innovation“ continues to be  the pillar of its continued success. Innovation enables COLOP to achieve growth for a product (namely “the stamp”) that is known in its basic form for hundreds of years.

Since the theme of innovation plays such an important role for COLOP, the entire product engineering is managed in-house and performed by the COLOP development team.

In addition, the marketing and sales team is heavily involved in order to introduce ideas as well as cover the requirements of our customers. COLOP “innovation” is not only connected with the product itself; all over the world, there are  many ultra-modern and self-developed state of the art e-business solutions available. Modern marketing approaches and optimized distribution channels complete the picture.

COLOP and the ecological responsibility

Extract from the COLOP ‘Mission Statement’:

“…we aim to take into account the regulations and laws for preserving our environment“

For many years, COLOP has been making a voluntary and above-average contribution to the issue, exceeding the strict EU and nationally-imposed obligations.

Through targeted measures – already introduced in the research and development domain – workflow processes are being optimized to avoid creating waste, where possible.  Significant waste savings can be made by re-structuring the products and production processes. Any plastics waste generated is automatically collected, crushed and re-used in the production process at a rate of almost 100%. Any unavoidable waste resulting from these processes is either sold or disposed of by a certified waste disposal company.

COLOP has been optimizing its production process for many years, creating products which cause as little damage to the environment as possible. This mission is guaranteed but also represented by an ISO 14001 certificate (environmental management system).

COLOP was the first international company who underwent the ISO 14001 certification. Furthermore, by means of the introduction of the “Green Line”, COLOP is the first global company that was jointly responsible for the dynamic within this  product range.

COLOP endeavors to make the biggest possible contribution to protecting and preserving our environment.

This is not about following the crowd, it is a matter of personal conviction.
