WHO WE ARE
Gluetec AB is a knowledge company with roots in Sorsele. The company was founded in 1993 with the aim of offering customized solutions in interference-free measurement with the highest possible measurement accuracy as a benchmark. Through long-term collaborations and active participation in research projects on non-contact strain measurements, Gluetec is an expert partner at the forefront of development. With the manufacture of torque sensors and load sensors, Gluetec has specialized in delivering unique wire strain solutions for convex and concave measuring surfaces in demanding environments. In 2017, the offer was further expanded through the merger with the engineering company Gluetec Piteå AB, which manufactures sensor bodies, prototypes and fixtures. From the start in 1993, we have from our base in the Swedish Lapland region developed and delivered torque and load sensors to some of the most demanding industries.
OUR CORE VALUES
We are convinced that it is just as much because of our employees, as for the technology, that our customers have chosen to work with us. It is through the commitment of our employees that we have developed into the knowledge company we are today, always with the aim of increasing measurement accuracy by a few more percent.
We show commitment and take responsibility in our role as employees and as partners to our customers. A willingness to listen, learn and help permeates our work. We show respect for our employees, colleagues, business partners and other stakeholders. We respect human rights, have zero tolerance for corruption and take responsibility for the environment and our environment.
PURPOSE OF OUR CODE OF CONDUCT
Our code of conduct has been adopted to clarify the values and principles that govern our relationship with employees, customers, business partners, owners and other stakeholders.
The code is based on internationally agreed rules, mainly the ten principles according to the UN Global Compact. According to these, all companies must maintain a number of basic guidelines concerning human rights, working conditions, the external environment and corruption within the framework they can influence. The code has been adopted by Gluetec AB’s board and can only be revoked or changed by the board.
BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS, WORKING CONDITIONS AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Fundamental human rights must be respected and applied equally to all employees, regardless of the form of employment. All employees have the right to join legal associations and organizations of their choice and to negotiate their working conditions collectively. We do not accept forms of forced labour, debt slavery, sexual services or human trafficking. We respect children’s right to personal development, education and we do not use child labour.
DIVERSITY, GENDER EQUALITY, AND INCLUSION
We believe that people’s differences contribute to an attractive and dynamic workplace. We must offer a workplace where differences are respected and appreciated. Both our employees and customers should feel included. All employees must be treated fairly and without prejudice, regardless of gender, transgender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion or other belief, ethnicity, disability or age.
In a similar way, we treat customers and other stakeholders fairly and without prejudice. No employee shall be subjected to abusive treatment or harassment. Recruitment, personal development efforts and promotion shall take place on the basis of competence, qualification, merits and performance.
HEALTH, WORK ENVIRONMENT AND SAFETY
A good and safe working environment is important for Gluetec. As an employer, Gluetec has the main responsibility for the work environment and safety in the workplace, which in turn affects the health of our employees. We want to offer a physically, mentally and socially healthy and developing workplace for all employees, and actively work to prevent illness. All employees also have their own work environment responsibility by e.g. follow safety regulations and to point out risks and deficiencies in the work environment to their immediate superior.
Our managers are responsible for the safety of employees and must, in addition to giving instructions and ensuring that these are followed, also create an understanding of the necessary safety measures. Gluetec has zero tolerance for drugs in the workplace, as they can jeopardize the safety, work climate, health and safety of our employees.
