Our state-of-the-art production process follows lean principles, combining with high quality standards and extensive testing to ensure that all our products enjoy excellent reliability and a long service life. Our commitment to quality is demonstrated by the fact that we measure the optical performance of all medium and long range lanterns leaving the factory. Our optical measurement ranges are used for quality control but also as tools for continuous improvement. Data of each measured lantern are stored and can be retrieved for control and development purposes.
Already years ago, we introduced an integrated management system in accordance with ISO 9001 (quality), ISO 14001 (environment) and BS OHSAS 18001 (occupational health and safety) to guarantee the very high standard of quality. Our quality is also demonstrated by the fact that as active participants of IALA (The International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities), we contribute to the development of whole industry we operate in.
Our development team is constantly improving our products to be technically, functionally, economically, and ecologically competitive and to be the highest quality in the industry. These performance improvements also contribute to sustainability. Lower energy consumption results in longer service intervals, less needs to visit remote sites, and smaller power supply components. All these leads to a lower life-cycle cost. Sustainability, for us, means doing business in a manner that supports people and the planet. We are committed to minimizing the environmental impact of our operations and supporting the health, wellbeing, and education of our employees and the people in the communities we interact with and serve. We continue to believe that these activities will benefit both the environment and society while simultaneously enhancing our corporate profitability and values.
