Turning visions into reality

This is our guiding principle. It’s also our slogan and our promise to our clients, partners and employees.

For successful projects and assignments of our clients.
For outstanding career opportunities for our employees.
For the future sustainability of our company.

Our success is based on trustworthy, honest communication and sustainable commercial behaviour – for more than 30 years.

Everyone at Thost – Partners, managers and colleagues – always act according to our mission statement values - fairly, honestly, reliably, trustworthily, and positively. Because we want to lead and mould our family-owned business both for the long term and independently. Each individual contributes to this, the realisation of our visions and the living of these values.

Our goal – your successful project.

Projects are our world. And this world is on the move. The dynamic development in technology and communication and the accompanying global networking is our chance to develop superior solutions and to decisively shape the future.

We deliver complex services in the management of demanding projects, processes and organisations. And our clients, whether private or public, domestic or international, are always at the heart of any of our actions.  It is our task to lead your project safely to successful completion.

Requirements for this are clear targets and priorities. And the skillful handling of risk and constant change.

Our strategy: Knowledge is changing the world

Innovation and development – that’s how we can secure the future. We rely on solid training, agile learning spaces, targeted training, cooperation and networking, knowledge exchange digitally and in person, openness instead of exclusion. To the advantage of our clients, for the qualification of our employees and to strengthen our competitive edge.

Compliance with laws and regulations and the consistent rejection of any kind of corruption is our top priority and the basis for trustworthy cooperation – for the protection of our company, our clients and our employees.

We have anchored this identity into our corporate mission statement and thus defined a common understanding of values.  These values determine our actions.

Furthermore, we have developed our own Compliance Management System and central Compliance Policy which supports us in the implementation and maintenance of our values.




Our Commitment


We support the next generation. Not only our own trainees and young managers, but also students at numerous universities.

Since 2012 we have supported the nationwide Deutschlandstipendium (Germany grant) programme, and since 2015 the grant for the Technical University in Stuttgart. By doing this, we are promoting the next generation of engineers and, through our engagement, helping numerous students to be able to focus completely on their studies and guarantee their success. On top of that we offer them the possibility to make valuable contacts for their career.

In this way we pass a piece of our success onto the next generation and promote the talents of tomorrow.


We promote social commitment in the areas around our sites with our donations. We deliberately select institutions that desperately need our support beyond the main flow of charitable donations. Our funds help the following organisations:

Sozialpädagogische Alternativen e.V.


The association Sozialpädagogische Alternativen e.V. (Social Education Alternatives), short form SOZPÄDAL, supports socially disadvantaged people, helping them, for example, in their search for accommodation or coping with everyday life. SOZPÄDAL also supports projects helping the homeless and youth welfare.

We support networks which reduce the burden on families and single parents, such as the Wellcome Organisation does.
