Quality, Health and Safety
Freudenberg Filtration Technologies stands for the highest quality from the first stage of development to manufacture and delivery of the products, from application engineering consultancy all the way through to After-Sales service.
As part of the Freudenberg Group, all known filter media technologies are available in-house. That is why we manufacture our nonwovens filter media within the Freudenberg Group to guarantee the highest process safety and top quality. We give particular priority to preventive quality assurance for our products and services and we operate a holistic integrated quality management system. All our business processes are subjected to continual monitoring and further development. Numerous certifications bear testimony to our clear commitment to the highest standards.
“Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Zertifizierung von Managementsystemen mbH” (DQS), the German organization for the certification of management systems, has certified Freudenberg Filtration Technologies to the current version of DIN EN ISO 9001. Our holistic integrated management system is based on the current versions of ISO/TS 16949 (particular requirements for automotive production), DIN EN ISO 14001 (environmental management) and OHSAS 18001 (occupational health and safety). Six Sigma is firmly anchored in our corporate culture.
We were one of the first manufacturers to comply with the criteria of EUROVENT certification for air filters of classes M5 to F9. This means that neutral test institutes regularly monitor compliance with the key performance data of our fine filters. Detailed information on EUROVENT certification is available from www.eurovent-certification.com. In North America we have been certified to Greenguard. We also set the benchmark in office filters: the micronAir® office fine dust filter for laser printers, faxes and copiers is the only printer filter to have received the official test seal from the German TÜV technical authority certifying “effective protection against fine dust and toner dust”.
Day by day, we systematically implement our corporate guidelines which are anchored in our Corporate Policy throughout the entire process chain; our outstanding and reliable performance in quality, innovation, risk management, environmental protection and occupational health and safety represents our commitment to active stakeholder management.
