Customer satisfaction, systematic product improvement, excellentservice: these are the key elements in the success of a company. The path leading to their achievement must follow the rigid “hidden” setcourse that goes under the name of “Quality Assurance”. The idea of quality has always been part of ODE culture. It is thanks to it that the production unit in Colico obtained the ISO 9001 certification in 1997. The certification was given by Bureau Veritas Quality International with the accreditation of the important international body Sincert. This certification, updated in 2008 is also to be considered as a tool to improve the company efficiency. As such, it affects transversally each operation and production level of the firm. To ODE, quality means: a continuous process control, a computerized network to guarantee the conformity of products, the recording of each step to ensure an effective analysis of data as well as a complete and efficient traceability of both components and finished products.
The mission of ODE is to become the main partner of customers for the machine and plant manufacturer market by offering complete lines of customised solenoid valves designed according to the principles of high product quality, adaptability and reliability.
Quality management system Certification. Business management system aimed for improving the effectiveness and efficiency of the organization with the goal of customer satisfaction. Certification in place since September 1997.
The ISO 14001: 2015 conformity assessment for the Colico production site establish the requirements of the company’s environmental management system based on strict international standards.
The ISO 45001:2018 conformity assessment, for ODE offices of Colico and Segrate, is a universally recognized international standard that defines the management and control system for workers’ safety and health.
