Quality in Eltek

Quality has always been one of the pillars of the ELTEK Group.

 

The Group has a system of quality management structure, which has gradually developed through adjustments to the  international standards and the requirements from major and specific customers.

 

To date, all ELTEK Group sites, in Italy and around the world are certified ISO 9001 and ISO TS 16949 (except for Metallux); in 2010, the Italian sites have also achieved certification ISO 13485 (Certification for quality in the medical field).

 

The Management System enables the various ELTEK companies to be regulated by a single strategy of total quality management, with a common mission, to ensure:

 

  • satisfaction of customer expectations by achieving excellent levels of product quality ("zero defects" policy);
  • employee satisfaction, through high standards of safety for risk prevention and protection of workers' health;

Objectives and environmental programs

The current program includes:

  • The reduction of the produced amount of waste
  • The completion of the separate collection within the plants
  • The reduction in consumption (electricity and natural gas)
  • The minimization of environmental impact related to the life cycle of products (substances that are part of the product and process)
  • The replacement of refrigerant gas with lower impact gas

 

 

The importance of prevention also arises from environmental legislation, which primarily in the European Union and other industrialized countries, provides for increasingly stringent limits and requirements (including RoHS, REACh Regulation 1907/2006/EC, ELV "end life vehicles" directive, etc ...).

 

ELTEK constantly monitors regulatory changes and guarantees as a prerequisite the compliance with all laws and regulations applicable to its products.
