Our Quality Management System (QMS) is a pro-active, living system, constantly evolving. It adapts to real needs so that it becomes a tool for growth and not a bureaucratic obstacle.
Our quest for customer satisfaction and continuous improvement requires documenting and maintaining records of our activities and developing a system to be able to measure our efficiency, and which allow us to set goals for improvement.
The quality system requires that information management does not depend on one person, thus avoiding data loss or the biased interpretation of data. It also demands that we meet agreed deadlines by anticipating any difficulties that may arise.
These regulations require that problems and risks are foreseen by carrying out a series of planning activities. This planning helps to minimize errors, improve completion times and avoid committing foreseen mistakes.
