180 years of company history have shaped the values of the NEA GROUP. Traditional values have been upheld, in particular, thanks to the Peters family, who has been managing the fortunes of the company since 1891. Trust in values has proven to be the best strategy to secure long-term stability and sustainability, both in a favourable economic climate, as well as in times of crisis. One key to the success of the Peters family is to be far-sighted and open-minded in looking to the future. Another is a tradition that has been passed on from generation to generation: The strong bond between family, company and the region of Aachen. This inheritance continues to be maintained and cherished to this day by the fourth generation of the Peters family. It includes great social and personal responsibility for every employee in the company.
