Responsibility for the future

We solve environmental problems with expertise

We are passionately part of the German Mittelstand. The SME sector employs around 60% of all employees in Germany. Innovative strength is one of the foundations of the SME sector. In particular, a high level of trust, fairness, long-term thinking, reliability and commitment are the core values that characterize German SMEs.

The management and all SICON executives uphold and live by the principle of the “honorable merchant”, a Hanseatic principle that is more than 500 years old: We act truthfully and reject unfair competition. We take our compliance management system seriously and represent the values defined therein as well as those of the honorable merchant externally and internally.


We focus on research and development of technical progress. We are committed to the social market economy and want to contribute to a positive public image of entrepreneurs. We are bound by the spoken word; our handshake or verbal commitment is equivalent to a written contract. We act in a solution-oriented manner with the aim of reaching agreements in the event of conflicts. We maintain a constructive dialog with other companies, including our market competitors. We therefore see ourselves as ambassadors of the Hanseatic principles!

As a committed member of the Bundesverband der Mittelständischen Wirtschaft e.V. (BVMW), we support the political efforts of the BVMW and are pleased that the BVMW has been a signatory of the Diversity Charter since July 2021, an employer initiative to promote diversity in organizations, more information at:

SICON has been a member of the UN Global Compact Deutschland e.V. since 24.05.2024. This membership is an important step in our commitment to sustainable and responsible corporate governance. The UN Global Compact was launched by the United Nations and, with over 21,000 participants from more than 160 countries, is the world’s largest initiative of its kind. The UN Global Compact Deutschland e.V. is the German network and supports member companies in Germany in implementing the ten universal principles of the UN GC in the areas of human rights, labor standards, the environment and anti-corruption.

We rely on lean structures and fast decision-making processes. SICON customers have a partner at their side who is not simply a supplier but develops tailor-made solutions that are economically and ecologically effective.

Technical Research Center

The new SICON Technical Centre (TRC) has been in operation since 2018. Here we are able to present our customers with a specific selection of SICON machines. From the flexibly adjustable air classifier to various EcoShred® shredders and the SICON LaserSort, a wide range of applications for scrap and metal processing can be demonstrated in a practical manner.

The TRC is always worth a visit. Embedded in the beautiful landscape at the edge of the Rothaargebirge mountains, it is centrally located in Hilchenbach, only 15 minutes from the motorway. Guests are welcome to experience the hospitality of the SICON team and are professionally looked after during the test runs.
