Since March 1997 our QM-system (system of quality management) has benn certified according to DIN EN ISO 9002 : 1994 by Lloyds Register.
In the beginning, it demanded a great effort to introduce the new QM-system, but it soon turned out to a big success.
The result was an improvement in the organisation of all processes as well as a better quality of the products which is due to the improved quality checks and the reduced number of complaints.
It is one of our main concerns to be up-to-date all the time. Therefore, we have constantly been working on the conversion of our QM-system from DIN EN ISO 9002: 1994 to DIN EN ISO 9001: 2000 since fall 2001.
Concerning the documentation, a conversion has partly been achieved so far. In order to get used to work in accordance with the new regulations, all the employees take part in special trainings.
The Company is planning to get the new certification according to DIN EN ISO 9001: 2000 this fall which would be before the expiration of the old certification.
