What makes us different

Our culture

What unites the 7000+ employees from over 30 countries who work for us is their readiness to invest in the success of the company on a daily basis.

The people who have chosen Xella as their employer are as varied as our product range is vibrant and diverse. We’re convinced these differences - this diversity - are what makes our teams so successful.

Our treatment of each other is respectful and open, uncomplicated and direct. We nurture flat hierarchies and make it a priority to treat everyone equally - regardless of their gender, cultural background, or social status. After all it’s the employees who lay the foundations for Xella's success.


We think ahead and are open to new approaches, new ideas and change. The diverse nature of our company is reflected in the diversity of our employees. Our workforce consists of self-confident individuals drawn from different nations with different cultural backgrounds.

We’re proud of the different qualifications and origins of our employees – they provide us with a competitive edge which we are continually maintaining and extending with a range of initiatives and measures. We promote international exchange, for instance, from the outset with our ambitious trainee programme; we offer our employees the opportunity to work abroad and gain new experience.
