A Message from our CEO

Compliance with law and living according to ethical standards and values are of importance to our company and our business. Our products stand for protection and safety only if they are in the right hands and if legal regulations and moral principles are complied with.


Our customers, especially the members of the police and the military forces who stand up for security and order, can count on our products and services to meet the highest quality standards. Likewise, our customers can be assured that we do not accept unethical, immoral behavior or even violation of laws. We rather prefer to refrain from a business than to make one that violates legal requirements or our Code of Ethics and Business Conduct (hereinafter referred to as the “Code of Conduct”).


With our clear attitude, we are a serious, reliable partner for our customers, whom they can trust. “Your safety is in the hands of well-trained police officers and soldiers with the best firearms in the world by Heckler & Koch” – that is our quality promise.


Our Green-Country Strategy is a clear commitment. Heckler & Koch with its products and services is an important component of the security architecture of the Federal Republic of Germany, the member states of the North Atlantic Alliance (NATO), the European Union, states equivalent to the NATO states, as well as states that share the European value system. As a matter of principle, we only supply such countries. Only in open, transparent and close coordination with the competent authorities and after their approval, we will execute the transaction.


Every single employee is an ambassador of our company and has the responsibility for ensuring that our company can handle the above-mentioned principles and rules. Where there are uncertainties, our Compliance Team is happy to help you with advice and support. Let us strengthen the confidence in our actions as well as in our products. Integrity is the basis for sustainable and therefore long-term success.


Dr. Jens Bodo Koch

Chief Executive Officer
