Our mission statement

Each individual at KUKKO is a representative of our values. By behaving as our values dictate, we become credible and attractive to customers and partners. This applies to every action: our joint work in internal teams, from customer inquiries to complaints to meeting deadlines. Our values are a promise to our customers, partners and colleagues that we must always keep. Each individual should ask themselves in every action: are we acting energetically? Do we think ahead to create the best solution? Are we trustworthy, i.e. reliable and honest? Those who can answer yes to these questions are living our values.
We are committed and strong-willed. We embrace change. We solve our customers' problems as flexibly and quickly as possible. We do not shy away from challenges, but tackle them with enthusiasm. We concentrate on solving the problem. Every employee works responsibly to develop solutions in his or her area of responsibility. When working as a team, each individual is committed, contributing his or her knowledge and experience in order to achieve the best result together.
We have a tradition of thinking ahead. Gathering experience, looking ahead, examining what is possible and implementing new things flexibly and quickly. This is how we have created innovative solutions and continuously developed. Every employee is encouraged to contribute to the development of future-oriented products and solutions. In this way, we want to inspire customers and secure the success of our company for the future.

We treat customers, colleagues and employees with respect and appreciation. We take responsibility for our area of responsibility and work carefully. Our customers, business partners and colleagues can rely on us. We keep our promises. If we cannot fulfill them, we deal with them openly and honestly and inform in time before a problem arises.

KUKKO is the dedicated solution developer that keeps everything moving quickly and reliably with know-how and foresight for customers and partners.
The special strengths of KUKKO as a company have been summarized in one sentence. Strengths that we have already proven in the past and that are important for customers today and in the future. This sentence is the performance promise that we as a company make to KUKKO customers and partners. We are measured by whether we keep this promise. Therefore, it is important that every employee works in his or her area of responsibility to keep this promise and make it tangible - whether in direct contact with our customers and business partners, in product development or internally by supporting others through the solution of our tasks and thus contributing to the result.
KUKKO for a world in motion. With our solutions and products, we want to make a sustainable contribution to avoiding standstill.
