At Sterne, innovation is one of the intrinsic resources we cultivate every day at different levels. We take into consideration that innovation is a real leitmotiv that goes into building our competitive advantages; here we do not wish to exercise our profession as our competitors do, we want to stand out by avoiding mass markets such as the automobile sector.
Innovation is even more striking when it involves employees; it federates our investors, and makes everyone aware of our daily contribution to universal projects, with technological advances for different sectors of activity.
In a constant quest for improvement and optimization, and always following the general and positive evolution of the company, the executive management has chosen, from the beginning, to establish a quality management system that meets the ISO 9001 : 2015 and IS0 13485 : 2016 standards. The company is organized according to a unique system, which includes both the processes and administrative parts. Quality and traceability are thereby guarantees for customers.
In addition to its quality management system, Sterne draws on its skills for setting up and developing, internal tools specifically created for a single company both in its activity and in its daily management.
In 2012, Sterne created a corporate foundation named "I.SIL'ART". Initially reserved for experienced artists, I.SIL'ART has now been extended to Sterne employees, allowing them to expand their creativity. Here employees are confronted with silicone in another dimension, an approach that is different but, which, according to them, serves as a resource for self-expression.
Art exhibitions and openings are organized to introduce the paintings of the artist-employees; the company’s hallways have become a living gallery.
