In a new design with informative, exciting and expressively illustrated articles - this is how the new NATUS employee newspaper "NATUS IN DETAIL", whose first issue has just been published, presents itself. In classic newspaper style, current topics and events from the internal and external "NATUS world" are individually prepared for the employees but also for interested external parties - that is the claim of NATUS to take everyone along in the diverse and exciting company topics.
The "NATUS IN DETAIL" is consistently designed in the new NATUS design and thus also refers to the new NATUS key visual. It depends on each individual, on even the smallest detail, because this makes the decisive difference for NATUS.
NATUS stands for precision down to the smallest detail, for "PRECISION IN DETAIL".
NATUS presents a new key visual
The corporate design of NATUS, is currently being modernised and developed into a trend-setting concept. "As a medium-sized family business, we pay precise attention to every last detail, both in the development, planning and production of our highly technical products and in the management of our individual divisions. All of this is only possible with the support of our qualified and committed employees - this is the basis for our success: The details make the difference - NATUS stands for precision in detail." (Frank Natus, Managing Partner)
The new key visual with individual image motifs from the different areas of our company is an expression of NATUS' self-image internally and in public: "Precision in Detail".
