Our company is highly specialized in the processing of high quality materials into custom-made worktops and furniture parts for the entire interior.

In addition, Dekker Zevenhuizen sells a wide range of innovative and reliable kitchen and sanitary products, such as sinks, taps and lighting. The core values of our company, including cooperation, innovation, quality, involvement and continuity, are excellently summarized by the concept of sustainable entrepreneurship.

Why?

This code of conduct is intended to make management and employees aware of how to act with integrity. This is done by recording what is generally considered correct and inappropriate behaviour.

For whom?

This code applies to every employee, representative or director of our company. Contract employees, employees from external organisations, must comply with the code. Contractors, service providers and consultants who represent us or work for or on behalf of us are expected to act in accordance with this Code when acting on our behalf.

Compliance with laws and regulations

All employees protect the legality of our company. They must comply with all laws and regulations relating to the environment, (occupational) safety and fair business practices. We expect our employees to act ethically at all times and to know and accept their responsibilities.

Anti-bribery and corruption

We build relationships based on trust, and we are committed to maintaining and strengthening our reputation. That's why we never accept or pay bribes of any kind. Gifts and representation We discourage our employees from accepting or offering gifts and representation from a business partner, especially if you would feel uncomfortable telling your manager, colleagues, family members or the public that you have accepted or offered them. We will not allow our business decisions to be influenced by - or give others any reason to suspect that these have been influenced by - gifts and representation offered or received.

Conflicts of interest

Conflicts of interest may arise when personal relationships, participation in outside activities or participation in another company influences or appear to others to influence business decisions of our employees. A conflict of interest event can jeopardize the reputation of our Company and the employee. We must avoid actual, potential or suspected conflicts of interest where possible.

Competition law and fair competition

Competition law protects free enterprise and fair competition. It is important for us to support these principles and we expect our employees to play their part in combating illegal practices. These include price-fixing, market-sharing, production-limitation, bid-rigging and anti-competitive or monopolistic practices. We do not enter into inappropriate discussions or agreements with our competitors.
