Sharing responsibility for next generations
Since STAS was founded, the common goal has always been to work towards the most sustainable tipper trailers and moving floor trailers and consequently a sustainable transport sector. It's about sustainability in every sense of the word. We want our customers to be satisfied with our product in the long term and we want the production process to be as clean as possible. For example, we are the first in Europe to switch to building semi-trailers with recycled aluminium and we are actively working on a zero-waste process. In addition, people are always at the centre of what we do. Our relationships with dealers, suppliers, our own employees, and our customers are built in a sustainable way supported by family driven values and are meant to be longstanding relationships. And finally, our plants have a big impact on our ecological footprint. We aim to reduce our CO2-emissions significantly and to eventually become climate neutral.
