Subject area quality

We deliver products with added value.

Our products and services are hallmarked by the highest quality. This pledge has become a core part of our PPx corporate guidelines. Our customers’ expectations are our quality standard, with this Pöppelmann effect: the principle of understanding the challenges and requirements as our own has always been one of the key factors in our company’s success.

This commitment, which has driven us since the very beginning, now blends seamlessly into our sustainability The concept of sustainability was first described by Hans Carl von Carlowitz in 1713. Since the 1990s, the expanded model of thinking has developed as a “triangle of sustainability”. Today, it stands for a comprehensive future concept based on a) an ecological balance, b) economic security and c) social fairness. closesustainability strategy. After all, a high quality standard is the prerequisite for product solutions that we can stand by in the long term. To achieve the best quality, we question customer requirements from the very beginning of the development phase. We then implement them as the best solution, both economically and ecologically.

Our products have to be safe, environmentally friendly and as innovative as possible in order to meet ever-growing social requirements and constantly increasing market demands – and all at a reasonable price. This is only possible with a meticulously honed quality management system that focuses on the overall organisation and is closely interlinked with other management systems.

We introduced our quality management systems back at the beginning of the 1990s and have continuously developed them since then. Over the years, an integrated management system has emerged. Today’s management system combines the areas of occupation safety, the environment, energy, quality, risk management and compliance with the aim of efficiently implementing the system requirements throughout the company. The goal is to achieve consistent and predictable results in our everyday work effectively and efficiently.
