The quality in Gervasoni

Quality is at the core of the Group. Gervasoni has been dedicated to the most advanced strategies of the international market.

The quality management system , highly structured , has gradually developed through continuous adaptation to the international standards and the specific requirements of customers with the full involvement of management, supervision, operational and production personnel.

The objectives of the quality management system of the Group Gervasoni are several:

  • Respect the environment by preventing pollution and minimizing the business impact;
  • Fulfill its employees expectations by applying high safety standards for risk prevention and for the protection of workers’ health.

Path Certification and Quality Awards

  • Since 1994 , with the introduction of the ISO 9000:1994 quality management system has significantly changed from the previous and assumes , as a central reference , the figure of the customer . The term indicates not only the customer who will use the final product, but is extended to all involved more or less directly in the production process, that is, those who work in the system or in the procedures of an organization, being at various stages downstream of process , can be considered ” internal customer ” phase just past.

    In the latest versions, ISO 9000:2000 and ISO 9000:2005 which correspond to the ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 9001:2008 , the attention of the standard has finally moved on the effectiveness and continuous improvement of business processes.

STANDARD ISO 14001

The ISO 14001 identifies a standard of environmental management (EMS) that defines the requirements for an environmental management system. The standard can be used for certification, for a self-declaration, or simply as a guideline to establish, implement and improve an environmental management system: get certified according to this standard does not attest to a particular environmental performance, nor demonstrates a particularly low impact but rather shows that the organization has certified an appropriate management system to monitor the environmental impacts of its activities, and systematically to improve the same in a consistent, effective and above all sustainable.
