Mission & Policy
We let the expression ‘sheltered workshop’ make way for ‘tailor-made company’. Arop provides work tailored to capabilities. We go so far as to give everyone a detailed profile with strengths and weaknesses. This is drawn up according to the German MELBA system. In this way we select the right people for every assignment. We always listen to concerns, so that everyone remains motivated and performs optimally.
Customization also fits perfectly into our relationship with the customer. This is how our team works according to the LEAN principles. Quality management is crucial to us. All processes are constantly monitored and controlled.

The results speak for themselves!
