The key principles accounting for Gavazzi’s excellence
The Company Management System is the organizational set-up to monitor the product conformity and to achieve excellent processes, according to the following principles:
A RESULT-ORIENTED APPROACH
The goal is to achieve positive and long-lasting results, both contributing to the customer’s success and finding a balance between the customer and the company’s needs. The respect for the environmental, safety and work ethics regulations is at the core of this business perspective. Leadership and clearly defined goals make up one of the key factors for the ongoing improvement and reliability of our products and services.
A CUSTOMER-ORIENTED FOCUS
Excellence means a customer-oriented focus at Gavazzi. The client retention and partnership are the company’s main goals.
Competition is conceived as an ongoing research for new working systems through innovation, people’s inclusion, together with the assessment and improvement of all company’s activities.
THE STAFF AWARENESS AND SKILLS
An active improvement of the staff’s performances is a crucial factor for our company’s success. Awareness and Skills are to be constantly honed by an effective sharing of knowledge and experience, strengthened by specific training programs.
LEARNING, INNOVATION AND CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT
The improvement of the company’s performances is based on the learning culture. Innovating means questioning oneself and being open to change. Gavazzi has adopted the principles of the lean manufacturing as a pattern to promote continuous improvement.
DEVELOPMENT OF PARTNERSHIPS
Gavazzi is actively promoting cooperation with all kind of partners. Such a model aims at laying the groundwork for an increasingly integrated partnership with benefits for all, giving birth to a Quality Supply Chain.
Studies have been carried out to identify potential risks impacting the company’s results. The Management System has been designed to control activities and prevent these risks from occurring.
As a sign of the company’s uncompromising commitment towards its customers, a wide range of products for the thermal insulation systems (External Thermal Insulation Composite System – ETICS) has been given an ETA n. 18/1026, in compliance with the requirements of the EAD 040016-00-0404 technical specification.
The consequent CE product mark accounts for the up-dated maintenance of the technical performances, verified through a series of technical tests during the Factory Production Control. This self-checking program is implemented in compliance with fixed method and time standards, under the control of an ever-working surveillance system by an external Notified Body, the ITC-CNR institute.
EN 15102:2007 + A1:2011 harmonized standards have been extended also to glass fiber wall coverings as they are to be considered as bulding products: they are also provided with a CE mark and a Declaration of performance (DoP) as a product warranty to the customer.
