Environmental and Quality Policy.

One of DBK’s most important goals is to guarantee high customer satisfaction in the long term. In a globally competitive environment, companies who offer the best value for money on a permanent basis will assert themselves. Fulfilling our customer’s quality demands – in every aspect – is, therefore, of central importance to DBK.

We need the skills and commitment of all our employees to achieve our ambitious aims. It is management’s aim to ensure that each employee identifies with the company, its products, and services, to create the prerequisites for achieving the set quality goals.

Our processes need to be understood, mastered and continuously developed to avoid errors right from the start and to guarantee highest quality levels.

Suitable training measures and an open and targeted information policy ensure that the quality policy is understood, observed and converted into concrete actions on all levels of the organization.
