Our values

The properties of individual materials, the curiosity for new ideas and solutions and, above all, the enthusiasm of our customers have fascinated and motivated our 50+-person team for more than 100 years.

KUNESA is a modern-traditional family company that acts as such internally and externally. Our individual work is shaped by individual characters.

For us, KUNESA is much more than just a name – it stands for:
Cooperative, uncomplicated, curious, honest, self-critical, ambitious

COOPERATIVE

We see ourselves not only as contractors, but as supporters, consultants and companions throughout the entire project, supporting each other, the customer and all participating trades.

UNKOMPLICATED

Our customers are the focus. Our objective is achieved when our customers have achieved theirs. We are going to our limits to achieve comprehensive and lasting customer enthusiasm.

CURIOUS

For us creativity and fun in developing and finding solutions is a team sport. We have the courage to try new things and think outside the box. For us there are no problems, only challenges that we are happy to take on.

HONEST

Successful cooperation is primarily created through trust. Trust means dealing with one another in an open, fair and transparent manner.
Challenges often present themselves, and mistakes are possible – it is important to be able to admit them and do absolutely everything possible to find a solution.

SELF-CRITICAL

For us, observing ourselves critically means not standing still, but rather to keep pushing things forward and developing further. Only those who try new and different approaches, make mistakes and discuss improvements, keep finding better solutions.

27 January 2020 – Source Federal Ministry of Health “The coronavirus has reached Germany. A man from the district of Starnberg in Bavaria has become infected, said a spokesman for the Ministry of Health in Munich……” From that point a lot changed. People got sick, the streets were deserted and everyone was just waiting for a vaccination and this situation will be over. Many companies had to register short-time work, others have benefited enormously from this situation. We had both situations, because out of necessity we launched a droplet protection on the market overnight. Actually, we were looking for a way to protect our over 90-year-old (great-)(great-)grandmother and within a few hours it became a product that supported our production. In the meantime, these elements in a further developed form are already an integral part of most shops, pharmacies, reception and Co.
