QUALITY & ENVIRONMENT

QUALITY 

Our business is based on work according to the ISO 9001:2000 standard quality system.

In all business areas, the high and consistent quality is absolutely in crucial role. We take the quality of the pride. Consistently high quality will require, above all, carefully considered and consistent choices. Quality is the outcome of high-quality ingredients and precise manufacturing process monitoring. The final quality is, however, in hands of skilled and ambitious people.

In Our PIIROINEN Furniture collection all our products are tested in Europe, some of them also according to the USA’s quality standards.

ENVIRONMENT

Our environmental policy is based on an environmental management system that meets the SFS-EN ISO 14001 standard. We comply with relevant environmental legislation, and our goal is to reduce the environmental load resulting from our operations continually.

We are committed to reducing the environmental load by continually improving our processes. We also ensure that our suppliers of materials and parts are aware of their environmental responsibilities. In order to implement our environmental policy, we set annual environmental objectives and goals and inform our staff and interest groups about environmental issues. We hold regular inspections to ensure implementation of our environmental policy. We train our employees, in order to maintain and increase their environmental awareness.

We abide by the strictest standards set for metal-plating operations. The water used in the metal-plating process is filtered in our modern process-water purification plant, which enables us to re-use some of the water.

We use the eco-chrome plating process (Chrome 3Cr+ Trivalent), which is more environmentally friendly than the method previously used, mainly because no chromic acid is used in the process.


In the year 2009, we switched to using a phosphate-free pre-treatment process in powder coating. Thanks to significant investment, our powder coating process is now even more environmentally friendly than before. The new process is based on nanoceramics, and it improves the quality of powder coating.

In the year 2013 we invested in a boiler plant that uses 100% renewable energy (pellets) replacing the use of fuel oil.
