A few years ago, the quality certification was considered a prestigious milestone. Today it is only a mandatory starting point. The concept of quality has evolved since when it was synonym of products manufactured according to certain rules. The ISO 9000 Standards have affirmed the concept of Quality Assurance: consistent quality that meets the clients’ expectations can be achieved by applying specific procedures.
The current standards (ISO 9001:2008, known as Vision 2000) mark a step forward. The basic concept refers to Quality Management, which can be obtained through processes that involve the entire company structure. Deming, a Pioneer in the field of quality, once said: “If you can't describe what you are doing as a process, you don't know what you're doing.”
When Varisco obtained the ISO 9001:1994 certification in 2000, the procedures were drawn up to implement the processes when it was time to pass to the Vision 2000 certification. Therefore, updating the certification in 2003 was not difficult at all. Quality is not an option, but a way of life.
Varisco has decided to make its quality transparent. This means that we can demonstrate that our pumps are functionally tested in order to provide them with added Commercial and Technical value that has very few equals among our competitors.
All Varisco’s products are supplied with test reports attached.
Varisco records and archives the test report of every single product in its SAP R/3 IT system and, should an anomaly be detected, the relative information will be immediately available. This database is essential for statistical analysis on failures and ensures a greater product control and consistent quality over time.
