We constantly develop our production processes, our personnel’s know-how, and our materials. In particular, we invest in occupational safety, the prevention of errors, and environmentally-friendly operational models. A good reference of our quality level is the fact that we supply products to several international state-of-the-art technology companies.
We work in line with our documented and certified quality systems: The Teknikum plants in Vammala, Kiikka, and Kerava have ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certificates, and our plant in China ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certificates. Vammala plant also holds the highly demanding IATF16949:2016 certificate used in the vehicle industry.
We are committed to the chemical industry’s Responsible Care –environmental programme that is the most long-running and renowned voluntary programme supporting sustainable development. We support this programme by taking into account the environmental effects in everything we do - for instance, by setting goals that, when reached, make our operations even more environmentally-friendly.
