Quality is the main concern

Quality is the main concern for Geurtsen. Our individual staff and the organisation as a whole hold the certificates that are relevant in doing our business.

ISO 9001: 2008
Since 1996, Geurtsen has held ISO 9001 2015 certification. ISO 9001 is used to assess whether the organisation is able to satisfy customers’ requirements, the relevant laws and regulations, and the requirements of the organisation itself.

In simple terms, ISO 9001 can be summed up as follows:
  • Say what you do
  • Do what you say
  • Prove it
At Machinefabriek Geurtsen we are always working on this and we strive for continuous improvement.

ISO 3834-2 certificate

In June 2015, Geurtsen gained the ISO 3834-2 certificate. NEN-EN-ISO 3834 certification is an internationally recognised quality assurance system for welding work. All activities involved in welding are covered by this norm. ISO 3834 is a quality standard relating to the entire welding organisation. This certificate proves that Geurtsen has guaranteed all the quality requirements in the field of welding work.

NEN-EN 1090 standard

Geurtsen also has the NEN-EN 1090 certificate. NEN-EN 1090 is a European standard applicable to loadbearing steel and aluminium structures. As of 1 July 2014, all components of a loadbearing steel structure must bear the CE mark in accordance with NEN-EN 1090. The CE mark is the manufacturer’s declaration that the product conforms with all the structural requirements laid down in the relevant product standard (NEN-EN 1090).

VCA certificate

Geurtsen also has VCA* certification. VCA stands for “Veiligheid Checklist Aannemers” (Safety Checklist for Contractors). The main consideration in VCA certification is the health and safety of employees, and it shows the company complies with this standard in its health and safety control system.

Together with the client, our task is to provide employees with a working environment in which they can work safely and efficiently with machines, tools and materials. This is a shared concern that is continuously monitored, and Geurtsen’s VCA certificate underlines this.
