Your career at Pörner!

The Pörner Policy

Technology is a must for the modern global society. Pörner Group is committed to convert process technologies into efficient production plants.

  • innovatively and flexibly for the benefit of  customers wherever their location is
  • for the well-being of all people who need and appreciate high-quality products

In 40 years of engineering the following basic principles have stood the test of time and constitute the values of the enterprise:

1. With the power of the proactive employees  and project teams

Pörner appreciates and encourages those contributing self-confidently and responsibly their power, talent and experience and are ready to take up major challenges.   

Pörner is also aware that well integrated teams of competent engineers and specialists are the most important asset and can develop better ideas and solve complex tasks when working as a team.

2. Fractal Company Organisation

The group and its companies are supported by as many employees as possible who act in their area of competence on their own responsibility to the extent reasonable (in terms of budget, means and ways). It helps to maintain the medium-sized character and flexibility: internal hierarchies are flat and lines of decision taking short. Sales are supported by all  organizational units. Pörner provides the complete range of services for process plant engineering and construction. The organisational units ("fractals") are identical with the engineering disciplines and functions. All of them are considered equal and treated equally as part of the whole.

3. Project-oriented work style - Matrix organisation

Pörner works project-oriented. For each project (whether small or big) a project manager is appointed taking the function of "executive director on limited appointment". The project manager is in charge of the communication with the client, project control (resource planning, work flow, cost control) and the coordination of all disciplines. The engineering departments execute the work, are responsible for the organisation of work, discipline at work, equipment used, training, standardization, quality of the work performed by its own team.  This kind of matrix organisation adequately takes into account both economic and organisational aspects as well as technical and quality issues.

4. Technology Orientation

Pörner has always a say when it comes to developing new technologies required globally and contributes its experience of international projects.

World Leader in Niche Technologies

As a mid-size business Pörner wants to provide the best and most economical process technologies for selected applications. This has already been achieved in the areas of bitumen and formaldehyde . More selected process technologies will follow.

Competence Center in Process Engineering

Pörner is constantly enhancing its process competence within the network of process development and design for the refinery and chemical sectors.

5. Continual expansion into new markets and new areas of activities in plant engineering

Pörner will continue to pursue a policy of natural, sustained expansion into new technological, cultural and geographic areas:  By incorporating local specialized engineering companies in the network as peer members with defined execution rules and quality standards the capabilities of this network will be enhanced.  It paves the way for a fruitful exchange of ideas, relationships and cultures, and the specific needs of each of our customers can be met.

6. Permanent co-operation on a basis of trust

Pörner wants to provide its clients maximum benefits in process engineering:  

  • competence in process design
  • professional project execution from pre-engineering through to start-up
  • experience and innovation in all engineering disciplines
  • application of proven standards and advanced  tools
  • global sourcing of equipment, materials and services
  • transparency, cost efficiency and flexibility in contracting
