Insta as an employer

Did you know that in the time since Insta started off 50 years ago, it has brought three new forms of technology onto the market. We are of course proud of these successes and naturally, this motivates us every day to constantly strive and push forward. With innovative and future-orientated OEM solutions, we support our customers - including well-known manufacturers from a wide range of industries - in the fields of building and lighting control. Our company is in Lüdenscheid in the “Sauerland”, a beautiful region in the middle of Germany and one which we simply love. It is probably because of this that we draw our electricity mainly from renewable energy sources. Climate protection and sustainability are certainly no strangers to us. Together, we work on making our company even more sustainable for the future.

Unleash your full potential and work with us on the future

Insta’s success is built on our comprehensive know-how. With our heart and soul, we support our customers in every phase of their project. With our innovative solutions and deft processes, we can react quickly and adjust to the new demands in technology and the wishes of our customers. With approximately 500 employees, a customer-focused work is only possible when everyone feels comfortable in what they do. This is a reason for the sense of family and partnership which plays such a vital part in the corporate culture at Insta. Irrespective of the levels of hierarchy, you will find that we cultivate an open, feedback-orientated and valued communication.

At Insta, the focus is on our people. So that we can respond to the specific situations of our employees, the compatibility between family and work is something which we place value on. Therefore, a fair, transparent and attractive remuneration ensures for trust in our company as an employer. Those who seek to advance further will be supported by us in word and deed. We support experienced employees in their professional development as well as our junior staff. New talents are warmly welcomed and are accompanied and supported by us from day one.

That is what we stand for.
