Our Values


We have been part of Southeast Asia for over 183 years. This heritage is our anchor. While we are growing globally, it is the legacy of our unwavering commitment to Asia that has built trust in our name.


We are a family firm. All our employees are part of the Behn Meyer family. Because we understand that customer confidence is based on reliability in long-term relations, we trust in our people, empower them to grow and treat everyone around us with dignity and respect.


All our dealings are guided by the iconic handshake between two Hamburg merchants that marked the beginning of Behn Meyer 183 years ago. We always keep our word and base partnerships with our colleagues, customers and business partners on honesty, sincerity and transparency.


We ensure we possess the highest levels of specialised application professionalism and knowledge in the industries we serve. We think and act with our customers in mind. Our management approach is based on equality, diversity and teamwork.


Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been part of our philosophy right from our foundation. We take responsibility for our environmental and social impact, protect the health and safety of everyone around us and use a CSR management system to validate improvements. Giving back to the communities in which we live and work is an honour we hold in very high regard.


Our distinct Behn Meyer spirit is formed by a deep appreciation for the company’s pioneers, an insatiable curiosity and a passion for solutions that help our customers succeed. By embracing technology and listening we uncover opportunities, innovate and grow together.
