We take our responsibility seriously

Sustainable product design

Right from the planning and the realisation phase, we pay particular attention to developing and producing only products that are as environmentally friendly, ecologically sustainable and durable as possible.
These are our key priorities
  • Highly innovative technology
  • Robust, compact design
  • Durable quality components
  • Low power consumption
  • Switchable power-saving functions such as standby and sleep
  • High-quality manufacturing
  • Easy to repair

Responsible production

We place the highest demands on the manufacturing process.
The manufacturing of durable products is our top priority. That is why we only use quality components in all IVT and Staudte Hirsch devices. Many of our products are manufactured within Europe. This allows us to keep our supply chains as short as possible.
Effective quality management
Another integral part of our quality management is that we put our products through their paces before delivery. This approach enables us to offer you a 3 year manufacturer's guarantee on all IVT and Staudte Hirsch products.

Excluded from this guarantee are rechargeable batteries as well as batteries.

Long-term and versatile use

All our IVT and Staudte Hirsch products are designed for versatile use.

We make sure that our devices can be used or installed safely and reliably even under the most adverse conditions indoors and outdoors, in the tightest of spaces and when exposed to strong vibrations and shocks, e.g. in vehicles.

To name just a few examples
  • All IVT DC/DC voltage converters are shock-resistant thanks to encapsulated electronics
  • All mobile lights from IVT and Staudte Hirsch are equipped with a switchable emergency light function and can be used reliably even in dusty and wet conditions thanks to their high IP protection rating (up to IP 67).
  • The well thought-out design and the extensive range of basic and safety accessories allow the high-quality IVT inverters to be used reliably and safely in both commercial and private applications.

Conserving resources

Saving packaging waste
Our products are packaged to save as much space as possible. We keep outer packaging as small as possible.
Recycling used cardboard boxes
Undamaged, sturdy cardboard boxes are reused for new dispatches. Used cardboard boxes that can no longer be used are shredded and reused as filling material. This is another valuable and practical contribution to environmental protection.

Minimise supply chains

To avoid unnecessary transport routes and shipping or freight costs, you decide to which recipient your order should be delivered.

On request, we can deliver the order straight to your company, to the construction site or directly to your customers – do not hesitate to contact us.
Our sales team is happy to advise you on the possible procedures.

Circular economy – avoiding electronic waste and disposing of it in an environmentally friendly way


Through durable design, maintenance, reuse, repair and recycling, it is possible to generate less waste and thus conserve natural resources. Ideally, this extends the life cycle of the product to a maximum. Recycling is in this respect the last resort.

Graphic: Note on environmental protection

At the end of their service life, electronic products may not be disposed of together with normal household waste, but has to be dropped off at a collection center for the recycling of electrical and electronic devices. This is indicated by the symbol on the product, on the instruction manual or on the packaging. The materials of which this product is made are recyclable pursuant to their labelling. With the reuse, the recycling of the materials or other forms of scrap usage, you are making an important contribution to the protection of the environment. Please ask your local authorities for the appropriate disposal center.


Donating instead of throwing it away

If your old appliance still works or can be repaired, reuse it by for example donating it to a charity organisation or giving it to someone as a gift. By extending the service life of your used appliance, you are helping to ensure that resources are used efficiently and additional waste is avoided.
