Quality assurance means testing and improving constantly

Our quality assurance system (certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001) makes sure that the quality of the processes and procedures in our company are examined and improved all the time. It is our aim to always fulfill our customers’ quality requirements.

Our surface refinement systems are subject to a permanent examination through a number of quality associations and have been awarded many quality certificates.

Just have a look yourself:

Saving energy and reducing greenhouse emissions – a constantly developing process

One of our prior business objectives is the responsible handling of all resources needed in our production and the whenever possible prevention of polluting the environment.

In order to constantly improve the energy efficiency of our company we do analyze the therefore required corporate key figures and information. Our energy management system (certified regarding DIN EN ISO 50001) supports us in constantly reducing costs of energy as well as of reducing greenhouse emission.

Precondition of that is the availability of the latest process- and equipment technologies as well as the financial support for permanent development and placing investments with a promising future.

Our innovations are exploited to improve the air

Photocatalytic surfaces

Our front components with refined aluminium surfaces are capable for more than just their attracting look. As an example, we have coated a clients’ facade with titanium dioxide. The advantages: The facade is cleaning itself and may also contribute the improvement in the inner cities (see illustration above).

The photocatalytic ability to clean itself indicates the capacity of surfaces, which have been coated with photo catalysts, such as nanoparticles out of titanium dioxide (TiO2). Due to radiation of (sun) light, organic materials, as well as nitrogen oxide (see illustration), will be corroded on the surface. The surface will maintain clean and antimicrobial effected.

Durch die regelmäßige Überprüfung unserer Prozesse verbessern wir die Nachhaltigkeit unserer Leistungen und Produkte kontinuierlich.

Environmental friendliness and sustainability thanks to clear structures

Thanks to a regular examination of our processes, we are able to improve the sustainability of our performance and our products constantly.

The environmental management system in our company (certified according to DIN EN ISO 14001) makes sure that our products are environmentally friendly and sustainable in both their production and their utilization phase.

This management system defines responsibilities, process cycles and guidelines in view of our company’s environmental policy and puts them into a reliable structure.

We have been a member of the DGNB and the Institut Bauen und Umwelt (IBU; Institute for Building and Environment) for many years.

The cleaning of used air makes a valuable fuel out of solvents

In our varnishing plant, we can process all highly enduring wet paint systems. Many of these systems (including so-called High-Solids) require a considerable amount of solvents (so-called VOCs) during their processing. In order not to make them go into the environment, we encapsulate them in our plant, concentrate them further and use them as a fuel gas for wherever there is a thermic process required. Thus, we are able to reduce the input of energy to a minimum level.
