Swagelok's prime objective for all departments at all levels in the entire world is "Zero Customer Disappointments".

At Swagelok Danmark we have created our own fundamental story based on Swagelok’s overall values, vision and mission. We call it A fitting purpose:
We believe in tight connections. It is what we deliver, and it is crucial for our ability to deliver. Tight connections foster safety and security, and it is the foundation upon which we continuously improve and develop our solutions, each other, and our customer relationships.
We supply tight connections in components such as fittings, hoses, tubes and valves. In systems that transports fluids under the most extreme conditions. From the ocean floor to the skies above. This is only possible thanks to close and tight connections between our associates and with our customers, suppliers, and distributors worldwide.
We go to work every day with the ambition to perform a little bit better, than we did yesterday. That is how we evolve, and that is how we continuously increase the value we add to our customers. At Swagelok we don’t just live up to the standard for tight connections - we set the standard. That has been the case since 1947. And it still is. Because even the best can always be improved.
