# Founders and CEO of DIETZ Power
Masterpiece of empathy
When we founded DIETZ Power, we had one very clear goal in mind: to develop powered wheelchairs that are adaptable right down to the last detail, for people with limited mobility of any kind to use in a wide variety of living environments. In 2017, a small team of professionals joined forces, working every day (and, when needed, at night too) with relentless energy, highly focused creativity and, last but not least, the valuable know-how gained from many years of experience, to get the job done.
The result: A range of perfectly coordinated wheelchairs and high-quality individual components that can be precisely configured to fit the particular powered wheelchair required. When the comprehensive range of configuration and adjustment options available do not meet a specific physical or spatial demand, parts that are individually made to measure guarantee optimal customisation.
We are proud of what we have achieved. We would like to thank the whole team behind DIETZ Power for the passion, enthusiasm and empathy they all showed in working towards their shared goal, and for the breathtaking speed with which DIETZ Power and its first family of products – the SANGO series of powered wheelchairs – got off the ground.
DIETZ Power aims to make its ecological footprint as small as it can. Our development processes embrace the cradle-to-cradle principle wherever possible. We also boost our ecological gains by extending the time frame over which the first user will be able to use our wheelchairs: our products are exceptionally robust and ideal for reuse.
DIETZ Power keeps its waste streams to a minimum and separates any waste it does collect. As manufacture takes place close to the sales market, the ecological burden due to logistics is also limited. DIETZ Power is striving to make its production processes completely energy neutral by 2030 and is already taking the first steps towards achieving this.
