Continuous improvements to the quality of our products and processes are made possible by our quality management systems. We are committed to sustainability and energy efficiency, and we arrange for certification bodies to inspect our compliance with standards on a regular basis.
Customer confidence is one of our greatest assets. We earned this confidence thanks to our quality and reliability. Thanks to the use of our own manufacturing facilities and a dedication to products “Made in Germany”, we have full control over the entire process from the start. We are committed to improving every day, and we believe that mistakes are an opportunity to improve. There is a reason why Blickle was the first German wheel and caster manufacturer to be DIN EN ISO 9001 certified in the year 1994. Our quality management system aims to ensure our a high standard of quality in all areas and processes to best support our customers with their own quality targets. Comprehensive material and product tests play a crucial role. A multitude of testing devices are available to our engineers, including rotary test benches for loads of up to 5.5 t, material testing equipment and climatic exposure test cabinets. We use cutting edge equipment for wheel and caster tests in accordance with DIN EN 12527-12533 in addition to destructive testing. The first and last parts of every production run are always inspected in addition to self-checks by production workers along the way.
Environmental management system
For Blickle, sustainable management is a basic responsibility. For this reason, we integrated the environmental management system according to DIN EN ISO 14001:2009 into our quality management system in April 2012. We are committed to improving our processes and products continually with regard to their environmental friendliness. The development of environmentally friendly products, the careful use of resources in the production process as well as renewable energy and raising our employees' awareness for environmentally conscious behaviour are the key objectives of our environmental management system.
Energy management system
In 2014, Blickle introduced an energy management system in accordance with DIN EN ISO 50001 with the objective of minimising energy consumption within all areas of our company. The energy management system helps us in our mission to lessen the burden on the environment, for example by reducing CO2 emissions. At the same time, it aims to raise every employee's awareness of the importance of using energy and resources efficiently.
