Quality and Certifications
BOGE is certified to ISO9001:2015 for operational systems. Quality is our foremost concern along the entire production chain, from planning and manufacturing to maintenance of the finished product. It’s with this guiding principle in mind that BOGE carries out the precise design, development and quality-conscious manufacturing of its compressors and compressed air appliances. BOGE‘s certified quality management system enables this high standard to be achieved in each of the individual production steps. BOGE is also certified to ISO14001:2009 for environmental systems. We are committed to processes that meet environmental standards.
BOGE quality management and certifications
BOGE invests continually in cutting-edge methods and technology to facilitate the development of innovative products and processes. In doing so, we align ourselves with recognised national and international standards – all our business processes meet the requirements of ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 50001.
This commitment to standards is also evident in BOGE’s quality-focused material selection: only first-class raw materials and products from certified suppliers have a chance of making it through our quality control. Intelligent engineering minimises the number of wear parts while reducing the load on central parts, for maximum durability and minimal maintenance requirements.
Individual responsibility for BOGE quality products
BOGE work processes guarantee the highest quality products for you. One of BOGE’s values is “craftsmanship”, which means that one member of our team is completely responsible for assembly of a single compressor. This principle enables our BOGE employees to identify more effectively with the products they make.
They also bear responsibility for adherence of these products to quality requirements. Not a single BOGE product leaves our Bielefeld workshop without first undergoing a final personal inspection, in accordance with strict test protocol. Our employees attest to the products’ conformity with their own signatures. BOGE’s management also pays consistent attention to quality, using periodically submitted reports and audits to check that predetermined targets are being met. BOGE continuously optimises all work processes within its quality management system, which even covers the management of internal complaints – management and employees frequently consult with each other on the subject.
Demand management at BOGE
Demand management: careful annual planning and budget calculations are the basis for quality-conscious, sustainable and environmentally sound production methods in all areas as well as for effective human resource planning. BOGE’s infrastructure is regularly reviewed.
With well-planned investments in workshops, machinery, production facilities, office space and facilities and ICT, BOGE lays the foundations for product optimisation, high standards of quality and a sustainable, future-oriented company.
BOGE quality control
Quality control at BOGE occurs in three stages: quality characteristics are first identified before being systematically measured and the obtained values analysed.
This systematic approach allows quality controllers to establish potential for optimisation throughout the entire product range on an ongoing basis. All measurements and analyses are documented in the management review, which also takes customer satisfaction into account.
Process supervision at BOGE
All services provided by BOGE are monitored in the same way as those provided by our subcontractors. If requirements within the service provision process are not met, BOGE will rectify this immediately.
