What is ISO Certification and How Do We Work with It?
ISO certification confirms compliance with internationally recognized standards. At Graniten, it means implementing specific rules and guidelines. It serves as a quality seal assuring our stakeholders that our products meet requirements, and that our workplace is designed with safety and sustainability in mind.
ISO 9001: Improving Quality Standards
Graniten actively works with ISO 9001 to improve and maintain high product quality. We achieve this by integrating quality work into every aspect of our processes. Through regular cross-functional meetings, we identify and implement improvements to continuously raise the product quality within the company.
