Our product quality policy
Micronic positions quality against the background of the Total Quality concept. This stresses Micronic’s commitment to compliance with the Total Quality principles, both in theory and practice. Our principles are:
- Concentrate on the market, target groups, and individual customers;
- Know Your Customer and fulfil their individual needs and expectations;
- Continually improve and innovate based on creative initiatives;
- Quality, safety, and health are inviolably the absolute top priority;
- Commitment and open and honest communication;
- Work with realistic objectives and support these with the ‘measurement = certainty’ principle.
Micronic’s customers can always rely on our company’s dedication to delivering reliable products in compliance with the highest quality requirements.
Micronic’s policy is to have its quality efforts structurally assessed by independent organisations. If relevant, we will follow up on recommendations for further improving the quality of our business operations and products.
All Micronic’s businesses are certified for ISO 9001:2008.
