This applies to everyone from the management to every person who works in the company.”
Everel’s mission is to offer individual advice and made-to-measure product solutions. “In many cases, we are involved in co-design projects with the customer in order to provide 100% customized components that perfectly meet our clients’ expectations and requirements,” Dr. Rondini describes the customerfocused philosophy of Everel. “30 years ago, we were a parts manufacturer.
