WMF Quality Management

Quality management

Our quality management is certified ISO 9001; environmental management in accordance with ISO 14001 and the occupational health and safety management system complies with ISO 45001.  We focus on domestic manufacturing of our products and our own production sites abroad. We also have a global quality organization, which accepts all goods produced and tests them in accordance with statutory requirements.

Evaluating impact

We are aware of the fact that, despite our best efforts, our activities, services and the products themselves all have an impact on the environment and natural resources. It is therefore our duty to communicate, evaluate and minimize – or completely avoid – these impacts. Our “EnvPro@WMF” environmental concept goes one step further: it integrates the sustainability approach into the strategy of the individual divisions and conveys a clear understanding within the company of how work is performed in harmony with the environment.
