Mission, Vision and Values

Our mission Meeting the needs of our time

Meeting the needs of our time is the raison d’être of the John Cockerill Group. While the world changes more and more rapidly, it also faces more and more complex challenges: diminishing resources, population growth, globalisation of the economy, etc. At John Cockerill, our ambition is to combine the expertise gained from our long-standing tradition and the technologies born of our spirit of innovation to develop unique large-scale technical solutions. Solutions capable of supplementing the measures to be taken at the political, educational, economic and societal levels. The services and equipment that we offer are efficient and sustainable. There are five major areas in which we want to provide our added value in the years to come:
  • Preserving natural resources;
  • Manufacturing sustainably;
  • Contributing to greener mobility;
  • Combating insecurity;
  • Facilitating access to renewable energy.

Our vision Genuine catalysts of opportunities

What unites us is the entrepreneurial spirit that flows in our veins. Directly inspired by our founder John Cockerill, our teams continue to keep this spirit alive every day: the drive to act, to decide, to successfully carry out projects, in a team and with customer satisfaction as the focus. We at John Cockerill are genuine catalysts of opportunities. We look at the world differently, at the existing technologies and those being developed, at the needs of our customers and of the communities in which we live. The challenges posed by today’s world are all opportunities for those who, like us, are ready to respond. Our strength lies in seizing these opportunities. Meeting these challenges. Providing technical solutions, innovative or existing, but improved. Solutions that all fulfil the same ambition: to be accessible to the greatest number. Where some people see obstacles, we see an infinite field of possibilities.

The values at the heart of our entrepreneurial culture

Human

We are stronger because we work together, while capitalising on our diversity. We share common objectives. Complementarity and mutual respect are at the heart of our relations.

Innovative

We must always stay a step ahead in our professions. We must constantly invent, reinvent ourselves. We approach the changing world not as a threat, but as a wealth of opportunities.

Committed

To be committed is to believe in what one does, to be proud of it. We take on ambitious objectives and give ourselves the means to achieve them. We are proud of our many successes and know how to bounce back after a setback.

Responsible

Every employee is an ambassador of the Group. He embodies its values individually or as a team leader. We all act by embodying the values of John Cockerill on a daily basis. By being exemplary, whether safety, health, ethics or integrity is involved.

Customer-oriented

We exist only thanks to our customers. We listen to them and meet their needs. We are reliable, to deserve their trust. Our spirit of service creates long-term partnerships.
