Throughout the history of the company, we have strived to be a responsible and reliable partner for our customers, providing them with high quality products and services. The importance of high and consistent quality is crucial in all of our business areas. Our operations are now certified in accordance with the international quality (ISO 9001:2015), environmental (ISO 14001:2015) and health and safety (ISO 45001: 2018) standards.
The certificates ensure the quality of our operations, our proactive approach to environmental management and the systematic development of occupational safety. All of our employees have an obligation to follow instructions and regulations that meet the standards.
“Certifications have streamlined our processes and improved dialogue among our staff. As a responsible company, it is important for us to create a high-quality and safe working environment for our employees. Certificates are not the final goal, but just an intermediate stage for us. Having a continuous improvement mindset, we want to develop the quality strategy for both our products and our services in the future as well.”
The benefits for our customers of Piiroinen being certified by the international standards are, for example, a reduction in the need for audits. Our partners can assure their own customers that our production is operating in accordance with the standards.
