Mission & Vision

Mission & Vision

Since its inception in 1967, Magnus Business Gifts has placed a great deal of importance on service and quality. We do this by managing every project ourselves from A to Z. Naturally we always work alongside the customer. One single member of our team is responsible for the entire project from start to finish. This means every customer always has a personal contact. He or she will meticulously follow up on each programme. A solution-oriented approach in other words.

We also think it is our duty to take our corporate social responsibility (CSR). And we don’t say that lightly. We have made a few big steps in the last few years. In 2013, Ann Magnus followed an SRE Kick Start Programme. This inspired her to encourage even more efforts to implement sustainable processes. She checked as many suppliers as possible for instance for the presence of eco-labels and fair social conditions such as the absence of child labour.

Behind the scenes

Showroom

A showroom with upcycled display cabinets

At the start of 2014, the showroom was given a sustainable makeover with upcycling. We reused existing elements. This created a strong connection between the rich past of Magnus Business Gifts and the current refreshing and sustainable vision. Completely unique in our sector! In 2016, we moved to new premises. The upcycled display cabinets were installed in our new showroom. We think the result looks amazing. But why not see the result for yourself? Click play!
