|Stam Hout Pallets & Kisten B.V. certified according to the latest quality standards!!!
One of the spearheads of the policy of Stam Hout Pallets & Kisten B.V. has always been to supply quality products. Quality products are the result of the dedicated efforts, energy and expertise on the part of all of the personnel within the company, at each stage of the production process.
In order to be able to demonstrate its quality policy to the outside world, in 1990 Stam Hout Pallets & Kisten B.V. acquired the ISO 9002 certificate issued by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance Ltd. In doing so, Stam was the first manufacturer of wooden pallets and boxes to be certified in accordance with this international quality standard!
Nowadays quality is seen more and more as the sum of all the material and immaterial characteristics of a product. Sound physical products are no longer sufficient in itself - it is the package as a whole which determines the total quality of products. Total customer satisfaction is the ultimate goal for companies, and something Stam Hout Pallets & Kisten B.V. has always felt very strongly about!!!
The certifying bodies for quality standards have also acknowledged this new perception and adjusted the various ISO 9000 standards to the new ISO 9001 : 2000. Customer satisfaction is one of the basic principles for the new standards.
As soon as the new standard was introduced, Stam worked hard and fast on adjusting its quality policy and handbook to the new requirements. As a result, in June 2002 our company was once again the first manufacturer of wooden pallets and crates to be certified by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance Ltd..
At Stam Hout Pallets & Kisten B.V. we keep on striving for higher quality standards. Participation in the Dutch marking system for wooden packaging that was introduced in September 2003, was our last challenge so far in the field of quality management. The goal of this marking system is to guaranty buyers and users of wooden packaging trouble-free transport without encumbering unnecessary import restrictions. Stam Hout Pallets & Kisten B.V. has been registered as number 23 on the list of the Stichting Markering Houten Verpakkingen and is therefore accredited to provide customers with this guaranty.
