We are ISO 9001:2015 accredited, all products received are subject to quality assurance tests; the process is tracked from start to finish and then archived for future reference after production through our exclusive joint venture manufacturing agreements overseas that are all TS 16949 accredited. All test reports are extensively detailed and available to all customers free of charge.

In case of specific testing requirements or safety-relevant applications, additional tests (depending on the item and use) can be performed at the commissioned and authorized plant-independent testing institutes. The costs for these additional tests are not included in the product purchase price.

The item batch traceability allows tracking products and production batches to the manufacturer, along with specifics of the manufacturing process throughout the whole or partially reconstructible supply chain. The batch traceability is especially important in the supply chain of the food, automotive, railroad engineering and aircraft industry.
