Our values personified

These colorful characters known as “Dudas” set the tone for everything we do. With a name inspired by “do” (as opposed to “don’t”), and a derivation of “Buddha”, they guide our company’s everyday work and major decisions.

Martijn van der Erve developed the Dudas to embody the mission statement. ”Growth is what we stand for. Growth for our customers, partners and our people. Step by step, better each time,” a vision rooted in the idea that personal growth is key to the growth of a community, a company and a family. On his travels, Martijn collected a Buddha statue that inspired the design of the Dudas.

Each Duda is a visual representation of Erve Group’s values. Designed using symbolic colors and icons, they’ve become a collectible addition to the cartoon characters we’ve built our business on.

As we evolve, more Dudas will join the family and who knows how their lives will develop?
