Quality and Environmental Policy
of Telegärtner Karl Gärtner GmbH
As a technologically leading and innovation-driven company, Telegärtner Karl Gärtner GmbH develops and manufactures products which are used all over the world in many different industries and set new standards there. In order to also maintain its pioneering role in future, the company is primarily focusing on compliance with high quality standards and consistent environmental protection.
Our employees clearly demonstrate that topics relating to quality and the environment are more than just vague theory at Telegärtner. They believe that their task is not just to continuously improve quality and environmental performance in economic terms, but more as an obligation which they are willing to fulfil – both at our head office and in our subsidiaries. Telegärtner Karl Gärtner GmbH has therefore consciously decided to place core technologies in specialised subsidiaries which manufacture components, sub-assemblies or end products.
- Quality is our obligation.
In order to both satisfy and exceed our customers' expectations, and therefore comply with all legal and other requirements, quality awareness at Telegärtner Karl Gärtner GmbH starts at the management level and includes all employees.
- Customer satisfaction is our goal.
In order to satisfy the high expectations for our products, our quality management system is subjected to continuous and active improvement. This enables us to increase our value-added while also offering our customers high-quality products.
- Improvement is our objective.
In order to promote and increase quality awareness among our employees, we organise our work processes as clearly as possible based on the principle of "Preventing defects is better than remedying them". Our quality management system follows a zero defect strategy and ensures that work processes are improved continuously.
- Partnership is our promise.
Long-term collaborative relationships: this is what we offer our suppliers and what we expect from them. In order to ensure reproducible product quality, our suppliers must satisfy the same quality standards as we do.
- We are committed to environmental protection.
Protection of the environment is more than just a corporate task at Telegärtner Karl Gärtner GmbH. Rather, it is an obligation to our customers, our fellow human beings and future generations. Environmental protection is therefore an important corporate goal for our company.
- The environmental management system is our tool.
Thanks to the active cooperation of our employees and through our environmental management system in which current changes, expectations and needs in our company environment are considered, we actively help to conserve resources and minimise environmental pollution. We comply with all legal regulations relating to our company and use the best available and economically feasible technologies. Sustainable resource consumption is supported through the implementation of regular energy audits according to DIN EN 16247-1. Energy consumption is also reviewed continuously in our analysis of environmental aspects and is kept at a low level. We regard digitalisation as an opportunity to make our processes more sustainable, more resource-friendly and more efficient.
- Environmental awareness is our objective.
From the purchase of our raw materials and consumables, and development, design and production through to packing and delivery of our products, we always follow ecological criteria and ensure that environmentally-friendly and recyclable materials are used. We favour suppliers who also attach great importance to environmental protection. Since 2010, we have also been generating some of our energy needs at our headquarters by means of a photovoltaic system and also, since the completion of the extension work in 2016, through a combined heat and power plant. Telegärtner Karl Gärtner GmbH is therefore actively contributing towards environmentally-friendly and resource-conserving production.
