BASS avows itself to a holistic corporate management. We orientate on our customers, on our employees, our suppliers - and maintain a trusting and respectful relationship. We aim to establish long-term win-win relationships with our partners. 
We are a process orientated company. High quality and steady improvement of our products and processes are our business. We take responsibility for our environment and society.
Our decisions are not based on short-term results, they are taken with a long term view and with sustainability. This is our benchmark.
We set clear goals for every company process and we regularly measure ourselves on this basis. Our share of apprentices for example is currently 15% according to plan.



The BASS headquarter is result of an architectural competition. This was carried out in 2003, and the jury awarded the first prize for the design of the architectural office Florian Nagler. The building is also constructed by the architectural office Florian Nagler. Since then the building has received several most noted architecture prizes.
