Quality and environment
Quality management at the highest level
No matter whether it is special, stock or standard products - at BWF Profiles we judge our plastic profiles, platic sheets, optical foils, plastic tubes, thermoformed parts and injection moulded parts by the highest quality standards. We are committed to improving our processes continuously and working transparently.
Our employees are the basis of our success. What does this mean for us as BWF Group? Education as the basis for professional growth. What do we understand by this? We are committed to long-term partnerships. How do we implement this? We care for our natural conditions. How do we put this into practice? You will find the answers in our sustainability statement on the topics of employees, education, society and the environment.
Sustainable production through renewable electricity
We generate over half our electricity requirement on-site at our Offingen plant. In doing so, we generate 10% of the energy in a carbon-neutral manner through hydroelectric power. The water turbine has been in operation for more than 120 years. Our photovoltaic system makes another important contribution to the environmentally and climate friendly power supply. Solar energy provided by the rooftop PV system on our production halls covers another 5% of our electricity requirement. The energy at the Offingen site, generated extremely efficiently by the combined heat and power plant, supplies not only 50% of the electricity requirement, but also part of the heating requirement. Steam is also provided for production and heating through hot water generation. Up to 20% of the energy used is recovered through air and heat recovery processes, and can be fed back into the system.
With our extruded profiles made with renewable electricity, we could encircle the earth halfway around.
We are certified to ISO 9001.
Certification according to ISO 9001 means we carry out regular quality controls in three shifts around the clock, at all stages of production. This begins with the delivery of raw materials, and continues through processing up to the dispatch of the finished goods.
Quality built for the market
Whether it is colour, surface, dimensional accuracy, accuracy of fit or function - nothing escapes the watchful eyes of our responsible and highly trained employees. Supported by state-of-the-art measuring instruments and testing facilities, product quality is monitored continuously. In this context, continuing education and modernisation are of paramount importance.
