In the conditions of modern business competitiveness of factories, without dependence on their sizes, first of all depends on quality of their products and comparability of their prices with offered quality.
In the mean-time the General quality management is considered to be the most modern concept. Its major principle is a strategic orientation on the consumer. Production of high quality, fulfilling consumer’s expectations, is the important factor of decision-making in favor of purchasing of Your goods or services. If the factory is capable to introduce modern technologies of quality management, it has a real chance to take part in international outlets.
The foreign producer meets the requirements of a potential western partner not only on the goods, but also on reputation. You can be absolutely fair, and your products can be remarkable on quality, but you will be asked to prove it, and documentary.
Therefore, since 1999, our factory has got down to creation and a heading of the quality management system.
For an estimation of the maintained work in November, 2000 there has been conducted the certification of the created quality system on meeting the requirements of the international standard International Organization for Standardization 9001 of version 1994.
Audit was conducted by representatives of German body on certification TUV CERT and as a result in January, 2001 JSC «MMW» gained the conformity quality system certificate of welded works’ production on request of International Organization for Standardization 9001. In a year iron shot production has been certificated, and in a year production of cast-iron pipes were included in the system.
Certification conditions dictate annual acknowledging not only of conformity, but also perfection of the factory’s activity in the field of quality.
Therefore, together with offers of major customers from Germany, for recertification of the quality system under the standard of International Organization for Standardization 9001 version 2000 a well-known German organization MPA NRW from Dortmund was chosen.
