Quality management

Our products are used in areas that require maximum safety. Their quality must therefore be excellent, traceable and guaranteed in the long run. We comply with these requirements by undergoing certification audits in the field of quality management.

Environmental management

We are aware of the responsibility towards our environment and the resulting obligations and contribute our share to sustain the world we live in.  We will, of course, comply with all relevant laws, standards and regulations.

We continue to set new targets for the sustainable improvement of the environmental compatibility of our products and production processes. We focus on achieving these goals and therefore apply an environmental management system according to ISO 14001.

Since July 2015 GEWES also holds the certificate according to ISO 50001 for energy management systems. Thus we are committed to continuously work on the reduction of our energy demand.
