Concentration on essentials
Concentration on essentials also includes the art of achieving more with less. Because less really can be more. For instance, when machines with fewer parts are more efficient. Because, fewer parts mean less materials used, lighter weight, lower energy consumption and, in turn, reduced environmental impact. Kärcher has been committed to the principle of using as few parts as possible for many years now. Today, Kärcher machines have an average of 20% fewer parts than comparable products made by other manufacturers, even though they have identical technical refinements such as cleaning agent dosing, filter dedusting and soot-particle filters. Kärcher cleaning agents are also environmentally-compatible thanks to more than 90% biodegradability and are free of solvents and additives as a matter of principle. Sold in the form of concentrates, they also save materials, packaging and transportation costs.
