QUALITY MANAGEMENT

The high standards of quality the GPE Group sets of its system are justified by customer requirements and the industries in which it operates.
The products and systems produced for our customers have a chiefly direct impact on wellbeing and the safety of human life and are aimed at improving quality of life.

 

The quality management system anchored and used in the GPE Group is one of the most important instruments for the operational processes
and puts these to the test. For this reason, the quality management system impacts significantly on the structure of the organisation so as to enable
it to understand customer requirements, avoid errors and identify potential for improvement so as thus to achieve the GPE Group's objectives
and improve continuously. By means of the four pillars of quality management: quality planning, quality control, quality assessment and certifications, for example:


• DIN EN ISO 9001
• DIN EN ISO 13485

• VDA 6.1
• CAQ System
• FDA registration in the pipeline,

 

the GPE Group ensures the quality standards at its premises.

 

Our quality assurance covers the entire spectrum, from goods receipt to the production line to the final equipment inspection and goods issue. In order to safeguard the customer-orientated quality principles for the long-term, we focus vigorously on sophisticated production processes, supported by the most modern measuring and monitoring technology.

Item measurement

 

  •  Coordinates measurement
  • Tactile measurement (dimensional measurement, shape measurement; surface measurement)
  • Optical measurement 

conventional measuring technology 

 

  • Surface measuring technology
  • Colour tests (colour spectrometer)
  • Surface tension
  • Rugosity measurement 

other testing technology

 

  • Materials tests
  • Thickness tests
  • Fatigue / reliability tests
  • Density tests and much more

Sustainability & protection of resources 

As a production company, we are conscious of the impact of our business activity on the climate and the environment. The GPE Group takes, monitors and assesses measures for protection of resources and energy efficiency. By means of optimised production technology and processes,
we aim to use natural raw materials responsibly, reduce emissions and keep negative impacts on people and the environment as low as possible.
In addition, we use organic materials from renewable resources.

 

For us, quality also means environmental protection. The latter begins as early as the selection of the material and continues through
all production processes:

 

  • Recycling of production wastes
  • The most modern waste management schemes (waste separation system, reduction of disposal costs, disposal safety)
  • Detection and evaluation of dangerous substances

 

  • Energy management DIN EN ISO 50001 and environmental management DIN EN ISO 14001
