Our quality claim

We make it better!

We are only satisfied when our customers are satisfied. Which is why our quality standards are based not only on statutory norms, but above all on the requirements of our customers.

KRIWAN stands for exceptional quality – and comprehensively strives to achieve this long-term goal.

Quality is our top priority!

Our quality team focuses on the following four core themes to ensure the quality of our products for our customers:

Quality Management

Quality management is not just a term for us, but a lived practice. With our team, we conduct internal and external audits to ensure that our quality standards are always adhered to. We are particularly proud of our ATEX certification, which allows us to manufacture and distribute products for the hazardous environment. This certification underscores our commitment to the highest quality and safety standards.

Quality Assurance

In the realm of quality assurance, we rely on established processes. The Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), for example, facilitates the approval of new and modified customer-specific products while ensuring the highest possible quality. Our integration into the development process allows us to identify and rectify potential errors early on. Additionally, we are responsible for the calibration and monitoring of our measuring equipment as well as engineering change management. To fully inform customers about product changes, we create Product Change Notifications (PCNs). Through our daily shop floor rounds, we are firmly integrated into the production process.

Incoming Quality Control

All materials processed by us undergo thorough inspection upon delivery. With a five-person team, we meticulously review supplier parts and actively communicate with our vendors to ensure that our high standards are met.

Customer Claims Management

Our Customer Claims Management follows the proven 8D methodology to effectively address complaints. Our contacts in Application Engineering at the headquarters and in our overseas subsidiaries are available to assist and support our customers with operational inquiries or error reports.
