At BontexGeo we value great quality.
Therefore, we aim to provide you with high-quality materials and make sure our products comply to the highest industry standards.
All our manufacturing facilities are equipped with fully operational on-site quality control labs. The labs are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, which allow testing of our products according to the relevant international test standards.
Throughout our production process – from raw material purchase to shipment of finished goods – several systems are in place to optimize our processes, confirm the product quality and mitigate risks in the event of a non-conformity.
You can find our company quality policy here.
As proof of our high quality, we have several system and product certifications in place. These require third party inspection to confirm the quality of our products and processes. Below you can find an overview of the standards and certificates in place at BontexGeo.
