Working at Indutrade


We have more than 7,000 employees spread across over 200 companies. Our employees share a true entrepreneurial spirit, technical excellence and a strong customer focus. Local presence and decentralisation are key elements of our corporate culture, enabling us to make effective decisions in close cooperation with customers.

Our companies

Being part of the Indutrade Group means that companies retain their original identity, including their name, culture and management. The responsibilities of all companies are clearly decentralised in terms of profitability and growth. This promotes flexibility and an entrepreneurial spirit. The prerequisites for this are talented employees who are personally driven to take responsibility.

Our people

Working at an Indutrade company involves both freedom and responsibility. Our companies vary in size and usually comprise 15-40 employees, most of whom are sales engineers or technicians.

Our people have deep technical expertise in niche areas, and solve problems in close cooperation with customers. The aim is to be highly sensitive to the preferences and requirements of customers and suppliers.

Professional development

Our subsidiaries are often focused on solving customer problems. Our employees therefore require a high level of both business and technical expertise. As a result, the Group works with continuous professional development in technology, sales and leadership. We also believe that sharing ideas and experiences informally between companies is invaluable for increasing business and technical skills.


By virtue of our decentralised organisation, all recruitment is done by the individual subsidiaries. We have no centrally steered human resources, marketing or purchasing functions. In the Parent Company we work primarily with business development, acquisitions, financing, governance and analysis.

People & Culture

Growing businesses by growing people is key in achieving sustainable and profitable growth. When recruiting new people, developing leaders and acquiring new companies to the Group, it is crucial that we share and believe in our values.

To become an Indutrade company or colleague of ours, it’s not enough with a successful track record; we care a great deal about how you act, what you prioritise and if you are here for the long-term. 

Companies that become part of the Indutrade family all share our values and our strong belief that at the end of the day, it is all about people − people make the difference!

Entrepreneurship – with a passion for business
Decentralisation – built on trust
Long-term – built on profitable growth



Core Values

People make the difference

We are a people-first organisation and we value and believe in our people – we develop and invest in our people. We respect all our stakeholders. We believe there are real benefits of belonging to the Indutrade family, built on people with the mindset to support each other with knowledge and establish best practices in relevant areas. We promote value creating knowledge-sharing – learning from colleagues, building networks, connecting and sharing expertise.
We are a decentralised group with a strong local presence. We believe that the best decisions are made locally and by those closest to the customer. Each individual company is fully accountable and responsible for its business and results. We appreciate to “keep it simple” – simplicity! - and refrain from bureaucracy. We act with integrity and high ethics in all of our business relationships. Trust is a cornerstone of our business model. We trust each other – a member of the Indutrade family is trustworthy and someone we care about.
We focus on profitability and our definition of success is to achieve sustainable profitability, growth that will benefit individuals, companies and society. We are committed to sustainable development through environmental awareness and protection, social responsibility and economic success. We believe in managing our businesses for the long term, respecting all our stakeholders and creating sustainable value over time for all our stakeholders.


Indutrade has a long-term commitment and perspective, and sustainability is a natural part of our business model, with the overall business objective ‘Sustainable Profitable Growth’. Managing a business in a responsible manner is critical for long-term sustainable growth, development and profitability. When discussing how Indutrade, with our decentralised organisation, should work with sustainability we found that the best framework for our Group is the UN Global Compact.
