Quality is our hightest premise.
For it is the best argument for customers’ satisfaction and a solid position in a hard fought market.
This quality approach at STOCKO does not simply begin at the manufacturing stage. From the first initial contact, we wish our customers to know they are in safe hands and can rely on this also during the planning and development stages.
With an application oriented design, the uncompromising selection of the most suitable materials, and strict observation of the customers’ requirements profile. International standards can only act as guidelines for us.
We exceed their demands by setting our own additional standards: with our own designed testing programs, in-house laboratories, a continued striving for optimal organisational processes during all phases and a close exchange of experiences and know-how with our customers and users.
In addition to this, our quality offensive goes even further in that our environmental responsibilities are firmly imbedded in our manufacturing processes.Right from the development stage of our products, we aim for the conscientious use of our raw material resources.
All our plastics and metal materials are recyclable and our state-of-the-art production processes completely eliminate the use of chlorinated hydrocarbons and chlorofluorocarbons. Moreover and to avoid waste, STOCKO are using re-usable packaging systems such as blister packs, reels, and magazines.
DIN EN ISO 9001 and IATF 16949
Having been awarded certification to ISO 9001, we have received approval that a quality management system is in operation throughout all areas of activity that assures a uniform high level of quality. Likewise, this is also the basis for specification IATF 16949. This certification is a prerequisite to qualify as supplier to the automotive industry. It acknowledges that the company has set up special procedures in all areas of activity and, therefore, complies with customers’ specific demands in the automotive sector. Thus and in the long-term, STOCKO increase the efficiency and safety for their customers and themselves.
DIN EN ISO 14001
In recent years we have with great commitment incorporated numerous improvement processes into our company environ-mental policy and constantly expanded them. Since 2011 our factory in Andlau has met the strict requirements of environmental management standard ISO 14001 and since 2012 our factory in Hellenthal has done so too. By doing so, we commit ourselves to a far greater extent than normal to the voluntary reduction of environmental risks such as waste, waste water and emissions. We are constantly planning, implementing and monitoring our goals in this regard. For us they are a major factor in our value system.
DIN EN ISO 50001
It has long been one of our corporate goals to keep increasing the energy efficiency in our plants while at the same time reducing energy consumption as well as CO2 emissions. For sustainable control and optimisation, STOCKO has developed an intelligent energy management system with which we can precisely detect any energy losses and initiate countermeasures at an early stage. ISO 50001 certification for this is for us the worthwhile supplement to ISO 14001. Whereas there energy is only a partial aspect, the focus in ISO 50001 lies on the energy efficiency of a company. With our energy management system we are, in the best-case scenario, even going beyond the strict requirements of this ISO because we can among other things increase our efficiency even without increasing our energy consumption.
