We value our values

Tembo is a family company. We hope you feel this every time you visit or interact with us. Being a family company, we count on our core values to motivate and guide us in how we do business.

The 5 core values that guide us

  1. Joy and pride.

Everything we do, we do with joy and pride. Working with Tembo means working with people who are proud of what they achieve and who enjoy what they do. We encourage our employees to operate in the areas they are most passionate about, so they can excel in their job. Our passion propels us to keep finding new and better solutions. As a result, we are able to design and build solutions that we are proud to deliver. 

  1. Creativity.

We develop high-end machinery and products. Our knowledge, creativity, skills, and performance enable our company to help our customers be and become the leading innovators in their market. This is why we help our employees reach their full potential and think outside the box. Because we know that sharing responsibilities, investing in education and creating innovation ecosystems are the best ways to inspire our colleagues, partners, and customers.

  1. Longevity

With our history in the tobacco industry, we are well aware that our technology has not always helped to improve the lives of humans. That’s why, in recent decades, we have done our best to find a better balance. In addition to developing solutions for the production of less harmful tobacco products, we are investing in clean energy and other green initiatives. What’s more, we encourage and support all of our companies to invest in local initiatives that make the world in and around their locations a better place. Because we firmly believe that it’s important to create and maintain a company that is profitable, robust and sustainable for all generations to come.

  1. Authenticity

One of the reasons for our success is that we continuously apply our innovative ideas to the improvement of our product solutions. We use the latest technical knowledge that the market has to offer. When better options arise, we research how these developments can improve our machine platforms and our customers’ products. This is a never-ending cycle, so you can be sure: the best is yet to come.

  1. Expertise

As a unique group of companies, Tembo is able to offer a wide variety of different talents, technologies, and solutions to major brands worldwide. Together, each of us brings the unique expertise, experience and skills that most benefit every stage of the product journey. All twenty of Tembo’s companies also work closely with businesses, universities and research centres around the world to combine the best knowledge, ideas and high-tech applications. This means that we can provide our customers and partners with the best solutions and guidance they need to bring sustainable products to market.
