Certification:

Quality means that the customer returns rather than the goods!

Our customers expect and are entitled to be supplied with outstanding quality and excellent service at all times. This is even more true when both development and production are specifically tailored to their needs and requirements. Like all work processes, quality assurance, too, is subject to technical, social and product-engineering developments over time. It needs to be constantly adapted and modified, while maintaining an unchanged high level. During the development process, technical knowhow is therefore just as important as working with the customer closely and efficiently.

The requirements and demands, for example those of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), are constantly increasing. Accordingly, quality needs to be continuously adjusted to ensure our competitiveness in the long term. Optimizing all processes and procedures is therefore indispensable when it comes to ensuring constant or even growing success.

Quality assurance at Koscher & Würtz has successfully implemented these findings for a long time, in compliance with both German quality surveillance and the FDA. Koscher & Würtz has been certified since 1998 and has established a custom-fit and integrated quality system.
