ISO 9001 - quality management

Defortec receives ISO certificate


In addition to many exciting projects and challenges, the ISO certification of defortec GmbH has also been worked on this year. This certificate confirms the company's well thought-out quality management strategy as well as its efficient and always process-optimized working methods.


The quality management standard ISO 9001 is an internationally recognized standard which defines the requirements for effective quality management in a company in an industry-independent manner. The validity of the standard extends from companies in the service and business sectors to industrial companies and non-profit organizations.


This certificate can be regarded as the foundation stone for the future development of the company by defining and standardizing our working process. The goal of this development is always the process-oriented optimization of the workflows and the constant quality control, which should not only meet the own, as well as the quality requirement of our customers, but in the best case even surpasses it.


We are looking forward to future projects and will continue to work carefully on the compliance and further development of our set standards in order to be able to continue offering our customers the best possible design quality.
